DM5AL ic706 extension cable
« on: 2019-01-12, 09:20:58 »
Hi everyone

As the original ic706 cable is now out of production DM5AL is selling breakout boards on eBay. These use an Ethernet cable to join head to body. Has anyone used this with RRC? With RRC it looks like  custom cables are needed so I have made these as per the RRC manual but not having any joy. Either the cable is incorrect (but working with back to back adapter so physically ok) or I have screws up settings. Any ideas?

Thanks
Steve

Hi I have got adapters from DM5AL and tested them, they works, so I have made instructions about how to strap the Remoterig boxes when using them

Thanks Mike,

As a terrible customer, I left out a vital bit of information! I want to use a set of V1 RRC boxes, so custom cable is required. I have used the following connections on my custom cable:

DM5AL RJ45 -  RRC RJ45
1                    2
2                    8
3                    1
4                    3
5                    7
6                    6
7                    5
8                    4

This checks out OK with a back to back adapter but not with the RRCs

I wonder what I am doing wrong?

Hi

Yes lot of people think Im a mind reader and just write "it doesn't work" quite difficult to help then

If you look at the strap config picture you will find out how the adapter cable should look like

3-6
1-4
2-5
4-7
6-1
8-2
7-8
5-3
