    Anyone have a spare timer cord (probably not proper nomenclature) for a Beseler Dichro 45 Computerized Color Head?

    It's the cord that connects to the six pin connector on the bottom left side of the head.

    Perhaps anyone with one they CAN'T spare could provide a diagram or specifics of the cord connection so I may make my own cord? I have no wiring diagram for it so I don't know the wiring scheme to the male pin connector.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi:
    If you do not have any success finding a spare the guys at KHB may be able to help you with information and probably sell you a complete cord.

    Thanks for the link. I did finally get a wire schematic for that connection (hand drawn) so I can make one, but I would like to find an original cord too.

    For anyone that stumbles upon one of these heads -- TWO AC power sources are required. The lamp circuit runs from the second power cord attached to the bottom six pin connector via the timer. I've seen these heads sold on eBay a lot without a manual and not showing or mentioning this second power cord.

    Gotta go make a power cord now and find out if this head actually works.
