Hi there people.


What sort of mains Leads do you all run to your ceiling mounted Projectors?

Do you run the up with the Video feeds?

And does anyone use any sort of shielded cable; to stop interference, or just normal mains leads?

If you use pukka cable can it be bought in 10m lengths,


Thanks

I just am using the supplied lead (for a while), but i keep it as far away from the signal leads as possible. I certainly can see hints of problems when the leads are close and parallel.

I use the supplied lead, but I screened it myself.

Just used some tin foil strips & copper cable, all wrapped in balck insulating tape.

It did take some time, but as both my VGA & mains lead go through the same 2" tube (ceiling mount) I thought it was warranted.

It did make a difference - the tiny amount of ghosting all but disappeared.

I don't know where to buy 10m shielded mains leads though, no doubt someone will.

You can buy them in various places, but at truly extorionate prices. If you can manage to buy double screened mains cable of the reel, then terminate it yourself, this would be sufficiently screened, however, as i have discovered, this stuff seems only available in large 50m quantities.......

If you only want to do one lead, the Kramer probably has as good an approach as any. Alternatively, run the mains lead up a copper pipe.......this should so a similar trick! (you could also earth the pipe if you wished!)

My mains lead is the supplied lead extended with standard mains cable. However, this comes to the projector at 90 degrees to the direction the VGA cable comes in at, so hopefully I avoid interference. They are adjacent for the short distance from ceiling to PJ, though.

a typo - should have read "then Kramer..." - i.e. Kramer's approach is as good as any. See his comments further up the thread :)

[sings] ...there's only one Kramer.....:D :D
