Wires: 5 pairs to a group:

  • White-blue, white-orange, white-green, white-brown, white-slate(grey)

  • Red-b, R-O, R-G, R-B, R-S

  • Black-b, B-O, B-G, B-B, B-S

  • Yellow-b, Y-O, Y-G, Y-B, Y-S

  • Violet-b, V-O, V-G, V-B, V-S

VIC-2E&M Pinout

The E&M voice interface card uses an RJ48S connector. The pinout depends on the PBX type and connection. This figure shows the wiring pattern for this connector, and the lists typical configurations.
