While mixing a recent show the console screen switched to the startup screen(screen with the pro 1 and planet earth graphics .) I was able to exit this screen back to my previous working layer. This did not happen again for the remainder of the show. About an hour later all audio dropped for about 5 seconds. This only happened once throughout the event. The console was connected to a UPS and the digital snake from FOH to stage was the Midas recommended Belden.

They are far from immune to ESD. I can reproduce loss of sync easily with a spark generator when connected from console to 153 stage box. The problem is much worse using unsheilded cables like Midas recommends. The room I was working had carpeted floors and stage, so lots of static electricity. It is only an issue when I use the Pro 1/ DL153 in this room. I have never had issues with any of my other digital consoles.
The problem still exists even when using shielded cat 5 with the sheild bonded to the casing of the Ethercon connectors. The issue is much less severe with the bonded shielded cables, but it’s still a problem.
