Data Cables / SC12R-6
SC12R-6 Robust CS I/O Cable, 6 ft


The SC12R-6 connects two or more 9-pin peripherals to the CS I/O port of a Campbell Scientific datalogger. The SC12R-6 may be "daisy-chained" to connect one additional peripheral with each additional cable.

This cable is similar to the SC12, but it has a 6 ft length between connectors instead of a 2 ft length.

Benefits and Features

  • Provides one 9-pin male connector and two 9-pin female connectors
  • "Robust" cable withstands environmental conditions better than ribbon cables


Detailed Description

The SC12R-6 cable is similar to the SC12, but has a 6-ft length between connectors instead of a 2 ft length. This cable has one 9-pin male connector that attaches to the datalogger's CS I/O port and two 9-pin female connectors that can attach to peripherals with a 9-pin RS-232 port. Additional peripherals can be connected by attaching one of the two female connectors with the male connector of an additional SC12R-6 or SC12 cable.

Some customers have found the longer SC12R-6 particularly useful for DSP4 Heads Up Display applications.



Connectors One 9-pin male, two 9-pin female
