yup, from your description it is a jones connector. these connectors were/are used for analog lighting systems, and have more pins because the data isn't in a multiplex format.

actually its not data at all... its a 0-10v system... ie 9.5 volts runs the dimmer at 95 percent.... you can get converters to dmx but they will cost you....
