Both 5 pin cables can be used for operating slave devices but they are wired slightly differently.
Wired Mode Cable wiring: 1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 4-4
Slave Controller Cable wiring: 1-1, 2-2, 4-4, 5-5
Our Slave Controller Thumbwheel Cable uses pin 5 for Run/Stop triggering, so, if you used a Wired Mode cable it would work but you'd lose the function of the record button on the Thumbwheel.
Our Wired Mode Cable uses pins 2 and 3 for data, so the Slave Controller Cable won't put the Controller into wired mode.
