I need to make a tach cable for a CSI 2130, but I don’t have one. It’s just a simple 2-wire cable with a 5-pin Turck connector in one end and a BNC on the other end. I am certain that the SpeedVue cable (which I do have) is wired the same, with the exception of having an extra wire for “power” (SpeedVue is not self-powered like my laser tach is). Looking at the photo below, which is the power wire and which is the signal? I assume there is a “code” which I don’t know, and I’m guessing (hoping?) CTC follows when building the cable I have.

Normal red is + and black - but don't quote me on that, there are exemptions like UK motorcycles with Lucas the darkness systems and the Japanese copy's of that, way back.

The cable pictured has a power wire (red?) and a signal wire (black?) and the uninsulated wire should be the ground. The braided shield is peeled back.

Rusty,

Perhaps you can get the 2130 manual online or from a patron of this BB and get the connector pinout. I know my 2120 manual has the pinout diagrams for all of the analyzer connectors.

Before pressing Add Replay, I found the 2130 manual online, and sadly there is no connector pinout information; such progress!

Walt, replacing the Lemo with a BNC I have to either wire the red or black wire to the center pin. I’m going to assume red is “hot” so I won’t use that wire. I’ll just solder black to the center pin. Just using a compression fitting so if it’s wrong they can fix it pretty easily.

Thanks for the input gentlemen!

Rusty,

I've done something similar in my effort to get the speedvue to work with my skf stuff.  

I'll be going into the office later this morning for a few hours and I'll try to see what we did.

Hi Danny, did you ever get the speedvue to work with the Microlog?

yes but it requires adding a power supply which made it too much trouble. we might give that another run since we have time on our hands.

How long is your cable? I may have one. I no longer use the 2130. What tach are you using?
