Okay so I need a certain cable for a new medical device. The cable for device 1 input is shown here...I was told it's just a standard RCA:

RCA

For the device 2 is going to use this type of jack:

Device 2 jack


So I believe I need a RCA/ 1/4 Jack? I don't know the proper name for them.

So I imagine a cord like this would work:

Amazon Link

Not sure what unbalanced means.

But my main concern about this cord, is that if you look at the rings of the end of the jack, there is only one. There is not a second ring...meaning it's not stereo..only mono. Where you can see in the picture above I have, it has two rings meaning stereo.

Can someone help me find one that is exactly what I need? I'm having a hard time finding it. And I don't know the proper names for the cords.

I may be wrong here, but the stereo mono thing doesn't matter because you only have the one way input so it would be mono regardless.

I would bet money that the amazon cable is exactly what you need.

The cable you showed will probably work but the plug end has 3 connectors (stereo if you will) and the device end has two connections (mono if you will).

You can get such an adapter at any electronics store or try the amazon one.

Depending on what the device is, you may wish to stay 2 wire all the way.

That looks like exactly what I want, but (I'm currently Googling as we speak for it, I'll let you know if I find it) I'm needing a 12 or 15 foot version? Either would be completely fine. 6 won't reach the other device sadly.

I would just call Altex and ask them. They probably have a longer cable and will tell you. They have an 800 number.

If your frequency needs are not high, you can just add a 6 foot RCA plug to RCA socket extender. A longer cable is best, but joined cables work at audio frequencies and below.

For less than $15, you can get the cables or combinations you need at Radio Shack.
