    How is a cable to use on the PL513 interface different than a standard
    phone cable?

    Something to do with 1 to 1.

    I thought a phone cable was 1 to 1.
  2. I found this really old file on my computer, dunno if it's still applicable:

    The cable required for the Pl513 module is shown below. It is made
    of 4 wire phone cable, an RJ-11 connector, and a DB 25 pin male

    Select 17 o-------------------------------o 1 Zero
    Input Red Crossing
    Common 18 o-------------------------------o 2 Common
    Common 19 o-------------------------------o 3 Common
    D1 3 o-----+-------------------------o 4 Signal

    D3 5 o-----+ Jumper 3,5,7,9
    | together

    The cable used with the x-10 interface modules is a straight-through or
    patch cable. A standard telephone cable is a crossover cable.

    Thanks Gordon. I should have mentioned I need the RJ11 connectors on
    both ends.

    Im using the PL513 with a Visonic alarm.

    So if you were to take the RJ11 connector off the end of a phone cord
    and turn it over it would be straight thru. Right.
  5. sorry. i don't mess with x10 stuff anymore, i just had that on my 'puter...thought it might help.
