SmartControl 7 (SSC-0007) Quick Reference Guide 009-0333-00

The Savant SmartControl 7 (SSC-0007) Quick Reference Guide provides the steps necessary RS-232 Wiring
to get the SSC-0007, a solution for small installations or system expansion to control IR and Controller RJ-45 (RS-232) Plug Pinouts
Serial based devices, up and running.

1 (Not Used for RS-232) 5 RXD (RS-232)

2 (Not Used for RS-232) 6 TXD (RS-232)
3 (Not Used for RS-232) 7 CTS (RS-232)
4 GND (RS-232) 8 RTS (RS-232)

If you are using RJ-45 to DB-9 adapters not supplied by Savant be sure to terminate any wires
required for communication/control within the adapter. Cut all unused wires to prevent the
wires from shorting against each other. Ensure that all wires required for
communication/control are not terminated in the connecter. Also, ensure that these unused
wires are not shorting to each other, as they are still terminated in the RJ-45 connector on the
controller side.
