Console Port Connector Pinouts for a CTP151 Device

 

The console port (labeled CON) is an RS-232 serial interface that uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to a console management device. The default baud rate for the console port is 9600 baud.

Table 1 provides the pinout information for the RJ-45 console connector. An RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter (p/n 720-014126) are supplied with the CTP151 device.

Note

If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 plug connector pin, you must use the Mini-USB console port on the front panel of the CTP151 to connect your laptop or PC directly to the CTP151 device. If your PC or laptop has a DB-9 plug connector pin, you can use a combination of the RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter supplied with the device to connect your PC to the CTP151 device.
