    Longer Inverter Remote Cable?

    I just installed a Giandell 2200 inverter and want to place the remote switch in the kitchen area. But, the cable that came with the remote is not long enough. I went to the store and bought a 33 foot phone cable, but soon found out the plug ends were too wide. My wife went to several stores (including Best Buy) and showed them the plug end but none of them had any idea what kink of cable she had. Does anyone have any idea where I could get one? The cable provided has 4 copper wires so I guess I could get a 4 wire cable and splice the ends onto the new cable.

    I'm guessing what you have is RJ22 plug (same as cord for between phone base and handset) (smaller version of plug for wall to phone)

    My new converter has a control module with RJ22 on each end but reversed from over the counter availability. Ended up buying the RJ22 ends and the crimp tool to make my own.

    If you are lucky yours will not be reversed and you can find a long handset cord to do what you need.

    4p4c (RJ9, RJ10, RJ22), Progressive Dynamics Charge Wizard Pendant has this handset connector at one end to plug into its converter.

    Uncoiled handset cables plug to plug, are not very common.

    Thanks for helping me out. After doing quite a bit of googling I don't think I can get a 35 foot cord with RJ22 ends. Where did you get your ends and crimper? And what does you mean when you say it is reversed?

    Depending on the application the pin outs of the cables are reversed, meaning pin 2 and 3 are reversed and I believe 1 and 6 are reversed. Primary uses are for cat 5 applications between T568A on one end and T568B on the other. Donít think you need to worry about crossover.

    As far as the crimper

    I got my parts from Amazon. And yes, reversed as described above ( I think he meant 4 not 6 though) Just be sure to trace pin in and pin out to match the short cable.
