App B.2 CRAFT Connector

A Craft interface channel is provided on the NT front plate that allows the operator to
connect the NT directly to a PC via a RS232 interface cable. The interface is of DCE type.
A RJ45 type of connector is used to save space on the NT front plate. Pinout is as defined
in EIA / TIA-561 (also known as RS323D) and shown in Table App B-1.
This cable can be ordered separately as 3EM 21149 AA
