Cable question


Recommended Posts

I wish to make up a new short cable for the EQ6R pro mount to the powerbox advance.

see picture for what i have .the 5.5mm x 2.1mm plug for the powerbox is positive tip.

unsure if i need to put the positive wire to number 1 or 2 on the mount plug.

Pin 1 is the negative so black to pin 1 and red to pin 2 on the GX12. The manual page showing the pinouts is viewed from the outside looking towards the mount. it would be nice if they also showed pin numbers where appropriate though.

Your cable sheath diameter is quite large and you may have difficulty getting it through the hole in the cover of the GX12 connector. As long as you can get the outer sheath under the cable clamp on the rear you should be fine, but even that may be a squeeze. You may have to end up using thinner cable.
