Wiring

You only need 3 things:

  1. a Crimp nipper for RJ12 ( € 3.82 )
  2. 6-wire telephone/data-type flat wire ( 25m € 5.53 )
  3. RJ12 connectors ( 50 pieces € 5.91 )


The Crimp tool

…is all you need to assemble a LN cable and has 3 functions:

  1. cutting the cable to the desired length
  2. strip off the outer isolation
  3. press the RJ12 connector on the wires.


Keep in mind that all 6 pins are used, and all have different signals.
So you must make sure that the colors are matching on both sides of the cable connectors.
The demo cable described below (24 cm) will cost about € 0.23 !!!

If you assemble like this you are getting a valid cable:
