I have an installation where three DMX controlled lights failed at the same time, at about the time welding was done near one of the lights. The DMX cable is shielded and the lights are daisy-chained with separate inputs and outputs. I'm guessing the welder was the culprit.

What precautions should be taken when welding near equipment that is so sensitive that its signal cable must be shielded?

Is there a wiring method that will reduce the risk?
