  • Pac TR-4 To Serial Wiring Help...

    ...I've got a TR-4 and everything to wire up a serial connection to the CarPC.... but I can't find anything explicit enough on how to wire it all up.

    I know that I need a 12v live to the battery connection on the Tr-4
    I know that I need the remote wire from the TR-4 to my amps
    I know that I need Pin-4 of the serial connection to the TR-4 low voltage input

    Does the Pac unit need to be grounded on another pin on the serial connection, or to somewhere else?

    Thanks!

    Nope.... you only need to coonect the signal line to PIN 5 of the serial port (if I remember correctly), then the ground simply goes to any solid ground point. So only one wire to the serial port.

      Thanks for the confirmation on the ground! (Although it's definately Pin-4 and not 5 for the DTR signal)

      I'll be wiring up in the next few days, once I get my monitor back up and running which has decided to stop working AGAIN. Gah!
