Hi,

I seem to have misplaced my cable for my declination motor. Would anyone be kind enough to explain to me the cable pinouts so that I can make my own? A picture or diagram would also be nice.

Thanks!

So there is a six pin RJ-11 at each end the wire. The pattern is the same at each end: Pin 1 to 6 (with the little catch facing down, copper pins up) is white-black-red-green-yellow-blue. The wire color pattern should not matter as long as you match the same pins at each end, but that fact that I see the same color pattern at each end tells me it is a straight through 6 pin connection.
