Oudie is delivered with a variety of cables and converters which enable you to connect Oudie to your almost any logger “out of the box”:
1. Power and data cable
It provides power to Oudie and (optionally) to the device which is connected to the RJ45 connector. It has three connectors:
mini USB connector must be connected to Oudie
black and red cable must be connected to 12V power supply (red is 12V, black is ground).
RJ45 connector with standard IGC pinout
Use directly with these devices: Swiss Flarm, Volkslogger, K6 Mux, VW1150
2. RJ 45 Female/Female Gender Changer
This connector can be used for extending the 8-wires cable using another RJ45 connector (for example ethernet cable). It can also be used to connect RJ12 connector with 6-wires cable which can be used for data communication with Colibri, LX 20/2000, MiniBox, RedBox and other devices using RJ12 connectors.
3. 20 cm cable extension with male RJ12 connectors
This is an extension cable which can be used for both power and data transmission between Oudie and connected device. It must be used together with RJ45 Gender Changer. Use RJ45 Gender Changer and RJ12 cable extension directly with these devices: Colibri, LX 20/2000, MiniBox, RedBox
4. RJ45->DB9 Male and Female converters
This is a “do-it-yourself” DB9 converter. The converter pinout is free. You can pin any wire from the RJ45 connector to any pin on the DB9 connector. Typical use:
. LX 5000, LX 7000, Standard RS 232
. LX 160 (NOT the “si” version – see the warning below)
. Zander/SDI GP940 and GP941
WARNING: If you are attempting to connect to devices which provide 5V on any of the pins please make absolutely sure that the pin where the other device provides 5V is not connected to the White or Brown wires (pins 1 and 2 on RJ45). This will cause collision and possibly damage to both connected devices! Take particular care when connecting the following devices: Cambridge 302, LX 7007, LX 1600, LX160si and others with built-in 12->5V converter.
The following cables are not included in the box, but are available as chargeable optional extras:
. CAI 302 / Zander ZS1 (when used with Rotary Switch) / Baumi Cable
Connects all models of Cambridge 302 with Oudie. This is a direct cable from CAI to Oudie which provides both power and data communication between Oudie and CAI 302. The same cable can be used also with Zander ZS1 when connected to the Zander Rotary Switch. It can also be used with a Baumi converter.
. LX Cable
Connects LX 7007, LX 1600, LX 160 si with Oudie. This is a direct cable from LX devices to Oudie which provides both power and data communication between Oudie and LX instruments.
Please note that these cables use 5V power for charging the Oudie. For this reason please make sure you do not use these cables in any other setup than the one recommended by the manual otherwise you risk damage on either Oudie or connected device.
