Panoptix data cable?
« on: Aug 09, 2018, 12:40 PM »
Iím considering purchasing an Echomap mount kit, and permanently mounting to my flip over (I also use the Echomap in a kayak and with the ice kit). The mount kit comes with a power cable; I would keep that connected, and add a SAE quick connect for the connection to the battery box. I would also like to keep an Ethernet patch cable connected to the unit, and be able to quickly/easily connect the Panoptix data cable via a RJ45 coupler or keystone jack mounted to the battery box. From pictures that I have seen online, it looks like Garmin uses a crossover cable, but the pictures are not good enough for me to be 100% certain. Anyone know the pinout, and if simply connecting a straight through patch cable to the unit, adding a straight through coupler, and connecting the PS22-TR transducer cable to the coupler would work?

Thanks,
Mark

Not sure what your asking. Tr22 uses ethernet/phone line jack like and it's own power source
FYI: it will burn a 9 amp in couple hours
I bought a 18 amp battery for it lol

I finally got around to trying this yesterday, and it seems to work.

TR22 -> Ethernet coupler -> CAT5 patch cable (straight through) -> Head unit

Iím going to rig a battery box with the transducer cable connected internally (power & data), with SAE power and RJ45 outlets for the head unit connections.

I initially was going to attach the Echomap to the flip-over sled with a RAM mount, but Iím not happy with the stability (worked great with a Lowrance 5). Iím thinking about attaching a cutting board ďplatformĒ that rests on the seat rails and juts out from the sled a few inches to mount the head unit.
