Ethernet cable to Garmin radar yanked apart

When the yard boys unstepped my mast they neglected to unhook the network cable to the radar antenna and yanked both end couplings off. Should I have new ends put on or a whole new cable. Thanks. Al

Better safe than sorry on day 2 of a foggy passage, yes- either new ends or since they are buying (or should be) a new cable.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.

Garmin sells a kit for new ends. You will want a RJ45 crimp tool and the terminals. The cables are also A/B.. A new cable is likely less expensive if you don't already have the means to make an RJ-45 crimp....

The Garmin network cables are 4 twisted pair, shielded, Cat5E, 24AWG stranded, bare copper. The drain wire is tinned.

I usually use the Platinum Tools EZ-RJPRO HD CRIMP TOOL part #100054 and the shielded EZRJ 45's part #100020.


EZRJ 45 #100020


EZ-RJPRO Crimp Tool #100054

Re: Ethernet cable to Garmin radar yanked apart

Funny, I've made at least a hundred Cat-5 cables, and never made one where I passed the wires through the end like that. It probably makes things easier!
