This chapter will cover:
- Matching cables for the M12-4 pin and the ethernet pin.
2. Overview M12 4-pin connector
Use the M12 4-pin connector. Remove the black protection cap.
The M12 4-pin connector:
|M12 -4 pin||Ethernet pin|
Use of an industry-standard pin-out for Ethernet. The table above shows how to wire from an M12 to the RJ45 Ethernet plug. This is done via VPInstruments cable.
3. Cabling details
|Use the M12 to RJ45 Ethernet cable (can be a different color)|
When creating your own cable: make sure that shielded twisted pair (STP) is used
Max length for all Ethernet cables: 150 meters.
4. Wiring scheme
|When wiring your Ethernet be aware that there should also be a power supply. Otherwise, Ethernet will not work.|
Therefore connect both the power supply and the Ethernet cable.
