Denford Mircrorouter V4 NS (2002) - RS232 cable Pinouts?

Post by TomB » Fri 02 Dec , 2022 18:01 pm

Was moving the machine today and unfortunately the 25 pin side of the RS232 cable got caught and pulled the cables out the pins, does anyone know the correct pin outs before i try and guess?

(Please attached photos for colours and pins)

Help appreciated

So by looking at what tails were left on the plug I've put 2 wires back in their original places but now it's these 4 left, no chance of guessing which way they go. Does anyone have the correct pins outs?

Excuse the grubby fingers :oops:

Cheers

I found this on the V4 wiring diagrams but mine starts on pin one (you can see the solder on the pin) and i don't have a green wire. (I'm going to guess the green wire has been substitute for a white wire??)

Also number 7 is definitely the ground on the 25 pin connector, confusing the diagram is showing something completely different to what I've got in front of me.

Here are the wires on the inside of the machine going into the RS232 plug. I'm even second guessing i have the Black wire and Shield in the correct place now as pin 1 goes to nowhere.

Wiring diagram of cable attached.

Hopefully there is enough key words in this thread to help the next person.
