Hi, Transport,

 

here you are the pinout:

 

Pin 1 on PXI side: Tx+ -> pin 5 on other side.
Pin 6 on PXI side: Tx- -> pin 9 on other side.
Pin 5 on PXI side: Rx+ -> pin 1 on other side.
Pin 9 on PXI side: Rx- -> pin 6 on other side.

The MXI-4 link has a DB9 connector which has only four pins populated.

 

Saludos!

Hola Jesús,

 

Do you happen to know the impedance of the cable used for MXI-4 connections?

 

Muchos gracias,

Alex

The short answer is 150 ohms.  It was discussed a little here:

Hello Robert,

 

It looks like the specification is very similar to these Fibre Channel cables made by Amphenol:

Thank you for your help,

 

Best regards,
