Tri Phase cable

Post by mur588 » Wed Feb 13, 2019 5:45 am

Am I correct in thinking that the Blue cable is the common on the one supplied from E-Stim

No, black is common, blue corresponds to one of the channels (which one depends of course at which plug is in which socket at the box end).

Black is the common, as mrbutt89 just said.
I suggest to mark the 3.5 connectors so you don't have to test which channel is red and which is blue every time. For example I labeled the 3.5 connectors with a small round of red and blue adhesive tape.

I don't understand why users buy expensive TriPhase cables when it's so easy to rig up your own DIY 2-into-1 adapter cable for next to nothing.

If you are using a Conductive Rubber loop as the 'Common' electrode you don't even need a TriPhase cable or adapter. Simply plug in two cables (one from each channel) into both ends of the CR tubing and you're good to go.

Marketing :twisted: and some kind of ease to use.

I got my Triphase cable for free when I ordered my 2B (if I recall correctly it was a temporary offer) so I use it :)
But you've got absolutely a point when you say it's easy to rig up an adapter!

Made mine in less than 5 minutes. I just snipped the jack plug off an old TENS cable and cut the tail wires out of two TENS pads. Stripped the cable ends then just 'twist and taped' them all together. Hey presto - instant 2-into-1 TriPhase adapter, and it still works perfectly years later. The bonus is I feel kinda smug every time I use it :D
