- Cables with Male 6-Pin Hirose Connectors:
- 3.0 m (9.84') Long Male-to-Male Cable
- 1.8 m (5.90') Cable with Breakout Box for Custom Applications
- Compatible with Several Thorlabs Products:
Thorlabs' HR10CAB1 and HR10AD1 cables feature 6-pin Hirose connectors. The HR10CAB1 cable is 3.0 m (9.84') long and features two male connectors, while the HR10AD1 cable is 1.8 m (5.90') long and features one Hirose connector and one breakout box for connecting loose wires without the need for soldering.
These cables are compatible with our TC300 heater temperature controller, and the breakout box can be used to easily connect a custom combination of resistive heaters and thermistors. The HR10CAB1 cable can be used to connect an SH05R(/M) or SH1(/M) beam shutter to an SC10 shutter controller or KSC101 K-Cube solenoid controller, while the HR10AD1 breakout box can be used to connect custom driving electronics to the shutters.
If a custom soldered connection is required, these Hirose connector cables can also be cut to any length, leaving one connectorized end and one bare end. The colored wire diagram above shows the relationship between the six colored wires and the pins in the connector, allowing the cut cable to be incorporated into a variety of custom applications where the breakout box is unsuitable. Note that the wires in these cables cross over the length of the cable, so the insulation color should be used for pin identification.

The ports of the HR10AD1 breakout box are labeled with pin numbers. Blank labels are also provided for custom pin assignments.
- 1.8 m (5.90') Long Cable With:
- 6-Pin Male Hirose Connector on One End
- Breakout Box on the Other End
- Allows For Easy Custom Connections to Several of Thorlabs' Products
The HR10AD1 Cable with Breakout Box allows six bare wires to be connected to a six-pin Hirose connector without the need for soldering. To aid in pinout identification, each port is labeled with the pin number corresponding to the male Hirose connector, as shown in the image to the right.
In addition, blank labels are provided next to each pin number for custom pin assignment information to be added. A graphite pencil is recommended for filling in the blank labels, as the markings can be removed using a standard rubber eraser if the pin assignments are changed.
