What about wrapping it up in electrical tape as well? My thought is the hot glue doesn’t hold so well, although perhaps the superglue IC + XLR soldered on will be enough if there’s a lot of force (e.g. someone tripping over the cable) on the XLR tail off of it. So there’s still exposed pins on the top side, so a potential source of accidental shorting, although much less dangerous than on the bottom where you hot glued it safe.

With our setup (using the Donnor wireless transmitters), the device sits on the sound/multimedia table, hooked to the laptop on one end, and hooked to a wireless transmitter on the other. There’s really no way to trip on it, and it’s interesting enough that I do occasionally get questions about it. It’s a 5V unit, so I’m just not that worried about it.
I have my suspicious that Donnor is using a NRF24L01 radio in their units, so I might try to build my own compatible transmitter at some point.

I’ll have to remember this for if our church ever gets lighting more complex than dimmer switches for track lights. We’re just now getting out of the pipe-pointing era with some kind of new software suite- sounds similar but not identical, but I’m not directly involved. I just video the sermons.
