Title: Calcomp model 34480 with 18365-3 cable, different pinout
Post by: LordZedd on May 07, 2019, 02:56
I was comparing a 18365-3's damaged cable (from a GTCO Calcomp DrawingBoard model 34480) with the pinout (http://pinoutguide.com/Peripherals/Calcomp_Drawingboard_3_DB_pinout.shtml) in your web, but it's different in these pins

25 pin D-SUB female connector -----> 8 pin DIN male connector
6 ---> 4
8 ---> 3
21 ---> 4

The shield, from 8 pin DIN, its connected with his pin number 2, and both with the pin 7 (from the 25 pin D-SUB female connector). This is the strangest thing. But it's works!!

I must make another cable, this it's damaged near the 8 pin DIN connector and its pin number 4 is broken, so, sometimes doesn't work.

Changes to the pinout are made.

Dear LordZedd,
i also have a problem with the same cable. I found that pin 21> 4 does not work. I have no knowledge to repair the same, and I cannot find the place of purchase on the internet. Do you know where to buy?
