cvr(t) clansman to RJB cable

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 Im looking for the cables for fitting clansman into a Cvr (t) Scorpion.

Believe same in Scimitar and Sabre too. 

Need lead from Rjb and others. 

Has anyone got anything.?

Thank you.

Hi Glenn,

A good thing with Clansman is that all cables that look the same are the same. If they have matching plugs on each end then both ends are wired the same so pin 1 goes to pin 1 etc. So all 12 pin cables are interchangeable except for length. The original cables supplied with the vehicle specific installation kit were each numbered in a series that was special to that kit and were labelled at each end with what they plugged into but were often replaced with non-vehicle specific cables that happened to be the right length or a bit longer.

Unfortunately the 'CES: installation kit, electronic equipment, Clansman basic harness' for each vehicle gives a full list of components with NATO stock numbers but not lengths of the cables. Most of these lists are available quite easily (Ebay)

Be careful though - not all 7 pin to 7 pin cables have all the pins connected, depending on their original purpose.

I'm confused.  Is it a 12 pin or 7 pin lead from the RJB    ....    going to the Clansman system. ??

My Scorpion had the bowman set up, so i have no reference pieces.

The cables to the RJB are 12 pin, but the end where they plug into the RJB is a unique plug not the standard Clansman plug. The last few I’ve done I ended up making the cables. You can sometimes find the ends (try Green Machine Surplus) and solder them to a standard 12 way cable the right length.

Thank you for the information,  

 The length of the cable is another challenge to try and find out/work out.

You can buy 12 way cable from RS and make them to suit. You need a lot of patience and a small soldering iron.

Hi

The RBJ plugs are avaialable from Ellison Electronics (tel 01277 626300)  Their reference is SBMS3106E2219P.  It's a 14 pin connector but not all the pins are used.
