MTR2000 Programming Cable
« on: July 21, 2010, 20:46:45 »
I've found myself in austere places and for some reason always need to build an MTR2000 programming cable (computer to radio). Locating tech documentation can be a challenge.  For you deployable comms guys, this document provides the basic information.  See Figure 1.

Also if I have to build one again, I'll know where to look for this link.

Sweet. I'll pass this on to the Tels Maint shop.

I've had to replicate one in the past from the one we found in a toolbox...

Looks like that link doesn't work anymore.

Good find Rheo.  Its true, Invensys/Safe Tran have dropped their service bulletin
PIB5-02 MTR2000 Code Plug Configuration document (01-16-03) as the Motorola
MTR2000 has been discontinued for some time.

I have a copy of the PIB5-02 document but the useful info was:

RSS PROGRAMMING CABLE
RADIO SIDE to COMPUTER SIDE

RJ45-M pin 5 (GND) to DB9-F pin 5 (GND).
RJ45-M pin 6 (TXD) to DB9-F pin 2 (RXD).
RJ45-M pin 7 (RXD) to DB9-F pin 3 (TXD).

Pin 1 of the RJ45-M is referenced on the left side of the plug with pin side pointing
up and facing the observer.
