Re: B&G Zeus MFD + 4G RADAR + RM INSTRUMENTS DIAGRAM

Attached is an Electronics Diagram showing the wiring for this system.
It might be helpful to someone, but I needed it for my boat records.

Re: B&G Zeus MFD - Has Anyone Tried it ?

I'd like to find a 5-pin Circular female plug/socket (receives pins) with a groove cut in the side to fit the Zeus Touch Network Cable (B&G, Lowrance, Simrad network cable) like this Lowrance Broadband Ethernet Cable 5 Pins 000-0127-51 $26.99
Lowrance Broadband Ethernet Cable - 6.5 Feet

So that I can unplug the network cable from the back of my Zeus Touch, then plug it into a circular female 5-pin socket (with groove) that is soldered to ethernet cable goes to my PC.

The cable comes from my RI10 and is the easiest place to access the Radar/network. I do not want to damage the cabl which leads through a bulkhead, as it needs to be plugged back into the Zeus Touch for radar as well.

I have looked at Digikey Circular Female Socket and Jacks for 5-pin
Circular Connectors | DigiKey
See the blue 5-pin female socket below which is about the right form but needs to be sized correctly for socket and pins, and a groove needs to be cut into the side.

Note: I need to measure the pins and the Socket on the Cable. Please refer to the "GoFree Ethernet 5-pin Circular Female Socket.jpg" below which duplicates what I need. Also "B&G Zeus Touch Network Connector 5-pin Female Socket.jpg"

I also looked at L-com Cable Assemblies and Cable Connectors with not success.

I would be delighted to know where I can get this socket and what the pinout and ethernet wiring connections diagram is.

Re: B&G Zeus MFD - Has Anyone Tried it ?

On the Mouser website, using the filters for
5 Position Socket (Female) Circular Connectors
the choice goes down to about 2500...
I wish I understood this system better.

I've got to measure the pin dia x depth
and the width of the socket first anyway.

Pinouts and Ethernet Connector

This blog is very helpful regarding pinouts, and it will be helpful, but since I need the female socket for this cable end, the wiring will be a little different I think.

Yacht Electronics: Lowrance yellow Ethernet cabling

He says
"The pairs are blue and orange. I connected those the same way as a 3 Com sourced very thin Ethernet cable I had lying around: blue to pins 1+2 and orange to pins 3+6 of the RJ-45 jack. This isn't according to either T568A or T568B, but that cannot be helped when the cable pairs are blue and orange. In practice the cable works fine, both when wired directly and when wired to a switch. I don't know whether the is actually a cross over cable or direct through though, so if you use a switch that doesn't do auto MDI-X you may have to swap the pairs."

Thanks M! Very helpful.
