    First let me preface this by saying im thoroughly impressed by the knowledge of this forum, and by the Dahua cameras and NVR I recently received from Andy.

    Unfortunately, I trashed the female connector on my 5231 while trying to hurry and install it before a storm. Undeterred, I sought to repair it tonight. I read and discovered the Dahua wiring is not the same as your typical ethernet color codes...

    I have little wiring experience - I just punched down my first patch panel, keystones, and RJ45s last week.

    I cut off the damaged connector and discovered there are 6 wires (see attached picture). Using a multimeter, I traced it to the following pinout: (see attached picture). Based on the reading ive done on PoE, this SEEMS to be traced correctly.

    Now I have the next problem to solve: this small gauge stranded wire wont punch down in my keystones, and im not sure how (if even possible) to crimp an RJ45 when I have 6 wires.

    Once I figure out how to put a connector on this camera, ill report back and advise if it works.

    @BigLarge, just wanted to thank you for the pinout and also mention that it works for the 5631R-ZE!

    1 - brown
    2 - purple
    3 - orange
    4 - yellow
    5 - yellow
    6 - blue
    7 - gray
    8 - gray

    I was surprised, but the small gauge wire from the camera punched down OK in a Monoprice CAT6 Keystone Jack.

    So I just match up the wires on my cam using the key above to "splice" into my cat 6 cable?

    How do I punch in the yellow and grey wires? The two that are looped between 2 contacts.

    Check out the 2nd pic in the 3rd post. I made sure the yellow and gray wires were longer than normal, then punched them down like normal (with a tool that doesn’t clip the excess wire hanging off the side). I took the extra wire, looped it back in to the jack into the second contact and punched the wire down for the second time.

    Ok, thanks. I must have the wrong tool. The punch tool I have clips the excess wire when I punch it down.

    If your punchdown tool is like my mine, it will do 66/110 blocks, has a reversible tip: one end punches down but does not cut, the other end will punchdown AND cut so you must insure you have the blade oriented correctly.

    This end punches down but does NOT cut:

    This end punches down and DOES cut:

    Oooh! Yes, my tool looks like yours. So when the tip "shows" 66 that end WILL cut. And when it "shows" 110 it WILL NOT? 20181118_211000.jpg 20181118_211007.jpg 20181118_211041.jpg 20181118_211048.jpg Thank you, I thought I had the wrong tool.

    Correct. Use "110" for Keystone, to cut use your own flush cutters.

    Here is a superb video which demonstrates how to map the pinouts on a (in this case Dahua) IP camera. Note that it is not assured that all Dahua camera models are mapped as per this video (or chart), so it would be wise to test the continuity specific to your damaged camera...



    The author of this video also provides the following chart which pertains to his Dahua model HDW1320SP camera...

    66 & 110 are not the same and each has a blade which cuts on one side and just punches on the other side.

    Thank you. It's 10:15pm, raining, and we finally got through the dang concrete and rebar wall. I go to hook up the camera, nada, dead. Further inspection, the jack is rusted and then some. Owner supplied the camera, no idea where it came from.

    Thanks for saving me a half day of unpaid work for a return visit. Your instructions and pics worked great. This otherwise dumpster bound camera has a new jack and is now wall mounted and sealed up. Should be fine going forward.
