Replace those Yellow Lynx Cables
We recently learned that there still may be applications in the field using old yellow Legacy Lynx cables to connect components in eDART™ installations. These cables should not be used, particularly in Piezo applications where a good solid shield ground is a must. They don't pass the ground through and essentially are unshielded. To purchase replacement cables, contact inside sales.

New J-LX9-CE Junction Box
RJG's nine port lynx junction box is now improved to be more robust. Some of the benefits of the updated case include:
  • Improved the robustness of the enclosure.
  • Thicker sturdier walls.
  • Larger screws for the cover plate.
  • Provided two mounting orientations without extra brackets.
  • Improved the sensor connectors to prevent cross threading.
