l it adopts the twisted screened wire with the specified impedance of 120 ohms, and if
the cable exceeds 200 meters long or there are too many scanners a signal amplifier
should be added, and a terminal resistor should be added to the last scanner(120 /1W).
l the pin 1 of the communication cable is the grounding GND
pin 2 is negatives
and pin3 is positive signal; they should not be inversely connected and should not be
coldly welded.
l the communication cable should not be screened by single-terminal earthing.
l the communication cable should not be wired together with strong electricity.
