Customers developing custom Xanbus monitoring applications will often ask for the Xanbus pinouts in addition to the Xanbus PGN files.
Xanbus network cables use an RJ45 connector wired to T568A Standard. Below are the pinouts for both Cat5 and Cat5e cables (note that the wire colors are different depending on which cable is used).

4 CAN_L BLUE BLUE
5 CAN_H WHITE/BLUE WHITE/BLUE

The pins with names NET_S are DC Supply +15VDC (200mA must be provided for each Xanbus device on the network). The NET_C are DC Common. The CAN_L is CANBUS Data Low and the CAN_H is CANBUS Data High.
