Autostar Cable Info

From: Tracy Miller (hal-9000@home.com)

I realize there have been many posts related to the construction of an Autostar connector cable, and I must admit these were quite helpful to me in constructing my own.

However, many of them can be a little confusing, especially for folks out there who like myself, aren't exactly electrical engineers.

Thus, I have taken some pics of my construction method, and labeled them for simplicity as much as possible (after all, a picture is worth a thousand words, right?).

This should be pretty self-explanatory, with the exception of the pin-outs for the Autostar unit itself. Please refer to the excellent pinout diagram on this site by Cameron Brennan (kudos!).

This will help you understand how the wires inside the adapter correlate to the pins that the cable connects to on the outside.

Walla! A complete Autostar Connector Cable for under $8.00 (only ~ $2.50 if you buy the adapter and simply use a handset cord from your home phone).

Thanks again for providing a great resource for these scopes Mike. Your work is greatly appreciated!
