There may be situations where you don’t want to plugin a FAB module directly to another FAB module. Some situations I can think of is If you want to position the additional module somewhere else (trying to fit in a chassis). Or you may want to make a U-turn so the XLR Output Module is facing the same direction as the XLR Input Module. Or maybe, your signal chain is getting too long and you want to break it up so it will be easier to work with.
You can solve all these issues by using an ordinary 10-pin male-to-male IDC cable to hook up the different FAB Modules together.
The normal FAB Module uses Female Headers for the Inputs. So for us to be able to use an ordinary male-to-male flexible IDC cable, we also need Male Headers in front of the FAB Module. Here comes the FAB9001 Cable to FAB Adapter to the rescue.
