Title: Cabling/connectors
Post by: Graynomad on March 08, 2011, 01:52:40 PM
I have changed the cabling from "any 3-core wire" to the following

  • The default connector is RJ11 6/6.
  • The wiring is "centre out", therefore 4/4 can be used for tiny Nodes and 8/8 can also be used for more current-carrying ability.
  • Nodes will have diode bridges for the power and be able to auto detect/correct the signal polarity, this allows the use of crossover or straight cables with no thought about what plugs into what.
