The manual for SH1 used with this cable calls out pin1 and pin 6 as solenoid. Usually solenoids are not polarity dependent but is there a polarity preference if I want to cut and terminate one end of the cable? I want to avoid damaging the supporting monitor electronics in the shutter.

Thank you for reaching out to us at Thorlabs. I think there may be some misunderstanding with these pin assignments. On the pin diagram tab for this device (SH1, using the HR10-7R-6S Hirose cable), we reference Pin 2 as the +V of the solenoid, while Pin 3 is the Solenoid Ground. I have contacted you directly to clarify this.

Would be nice to have the option to have 90 Bend on one connector or just an adapter for 90 degrees

The TC200CAB10 is a 6-pin Male-Male Hirose connector cable, 10' long. Do you guys have access to a longer cable (20 feet), or a female-male cable I could use as an extender? Thanks, Joe
