SC12R-6 Robust CS I/O Cable, 6 ft


The SC12R-6 connects two or more 9-pin peripherals to the CS I/O port of a Campbell Scientific datalogger. The SC12R-6 may be "daisy-chained" to connect one additional peripheral with each additional cable.

This cable is similar to the SC12, but it has a 6 ft length between connectors instead of a 2 ft length.

Benefits and Features

  • Provides one 9-pin pin (male) connector and two 9-pin socket (female) connectors
  • "Robust" cable withstands environmental conditions better than ribbon cables


Technical Description

The SC12R-6 cable is similar to the SC12, but has a 6-ft length between connectors instead of a 2 ft length. This cable has one 9-pin pin (male) connector that attaches to the data logger's CS I/O port and two 9-pin socket (female) connectors that can attach to peripherals with a 9-pin RS-232 port. Additional peripherals can be connected by attaching one of the two socket (female) connectors with the pin (male) connector of an additional SC12R-6 or SC12 cable.

Some customers have found the longer SC12R-6 particularly useful for DSP4 Heads Up Display applications.



Connectors One 9-pin pin (male), two 9-pin socket (female)
Operating Temperature Range -65° to +150°C
Length 182.9 cm (72.0 in.)
