Ethernet Communication Port

With the new MC42 and MC43 master modules, I see you have the ability to communicate via Ethernet communication port. Where can I find this part?

Quick update. I just cut a Ethernet cable and wired it to the MC4 and it worked great. So any sort of Ethernet cable or port will work as long as it is wired correctly.

One proposal is to use a standard M12 D-coded panel mount like in this picture. This works good for prototyping purposes but might not be an optimal solution for serial production. Can be purchased from multiple online web-stores that carry electronics supplies. The picture below is just one example what it can look like. If the panel mount has flying leads it is of course an advantage.


With this installed you can use our standard accessories to connect with the computer.
