My DB9 to RJ45 hand controller cable has been damaged in the field.  The problem is in the DB9 plug.  I would like to repair it in the field by patching the RJ45 end to another DB9 cable I have, but because the original DB9 plug is disconnected, I cannot determine which pin number of the DB9 corresponds to the RJ45 pins.  Does anyone have this pin out available?

I believe this is what you are needing?

Oh, I googled DB9 plug and maybe you have an older HC than I have. More of a serial port style. Dang, hoping someone comes along with the info.

Maybe this? It does NOT match wire colors to my current gen EQ6-R HC cable though.

I do have four connections of the six that I can trace and they do match your diagram, so that's a good indication that it is the proper pin out.  Thank you for your really prompt answer.  JLCY
