Jacking plugs for Davis Vantage pro and similar

Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Jacking plugs for Davis Vantage pro and similar

Postby robbrooks » Tue Sep 26, 2017 7:52 am

Good morning
I am wondering whether anyone can help on this Forum. I have owned Davis equipment since 1998 and am always coming across the same problem with the wiring and sourcing the little RJ11 jack plugs. Has anyone found a source for these , or attempted a repair of a severed cable. RS components and Maplins have drawn blanks. I have a crimping tool that fits the items so surely they must be available in the UK?
Thanks in antic

Hi Rob,

There should be plenty of offers on ebay, or I often start with CPC (Farnell) if I'm going to spend £6+ on components (free shipping). Sometimes "Kenable" are good for these small items (they also have a presence on ebay) , but the first link that a Google found for me is:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/kenable-Position-Conductor-Modular-Crimps/dp/B003PTXATG/ref

Note that you might need (so may as well get) "RJ12", which has 6 poles and 6 contacts (6p6c). RJ11 may have only 2 or 4 contacts within the 6 poles (6p2c , 6p4c).

Cheers, Alan.
