What is this adapter called?

Hello...

I had someone give me some Chinese made lights, but their connectors for DMX are very strange to me. They look like this.

However my normal 3 pin DMX cables will not fit into these connectors.

I saw a picture of an adapter online, but I cannot figure out how or where to purchase it. Maybe I am not searching for the right thing.

I tried searching for "Signal conversion line" like the picture said, but I come up with nothing.

Any help in finding this adapter would be appreciated.

Don't know the exact name, but those are IP classed connectors, for outdoor use. Maybe search for "IP DMX cable" or sumfing.

By the way, I'm pretty sure those are actually the power cables when I think about it.

You can run DC power up to about 48V down those. So not really suited as power to the majority of fixtures. Seeing them on DMX is very common for IP rated LED PARs etc etc.

I've manufactured quite a lot of outdoor LED lighting which does tend to run on low voltage so we use these for that.
