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.

See this thread

for some discussion about options and some insight into the decision process.
