Anyone out there have the color code/pinout for the Ethernet port on an IPOD-EL1MPIR50 IP camera?  The POE Ethernet port for my IP camera is damaged and missing a pin.  I want to replace the port with a standard RJ45 keystone jack.  If I knew the color code and pinout for the camera I could do this.  Can someone please help?  Thanks in advance for anyone who can help.

Here's a picture showing the camera and the Ethernet plug with the No. 6 pin missing.

No.  This is a camera that has been installed for about a year and stopped working recently.  The RJ45 POE Ethernet port pin #6 basically broke due to corrosion.  I could easily replace it with RJ45 keystone jack if I knew the color code and pinout for the camera wires.  I have already cut the original RJ45 connector off.  The wire colors are blue, orange, gray, purple, yellow and brown.  Doesn't really line up with the standard T-568B network color code.  If I knew which colors went to which pins I would be well on my way to repairing this camera.

Ohhhh No, you shouldn't cut the cable from the beginning, Unfortunately that voids the warranty. The other thing is that the camera does not use 4 pairs of wire. let me see what I can do.

Yeah, it was a pretty boneheaded move on my behalf cutting the end off before I verified the color code and pinout.  As far as the warranty, I just assumed that the warranty had run out already.  I've got another weather proof IP camera IPVD-EL3MPIR that is dead as well and will not power up.  I should definitely verify the warranty status on it then.

It was mounted outside on a fence post as was the IPOD-EL1MPIR50 camera.  The connector isn't corroded.  The camera just isn't powering up through the POE.  I suspect water has gotten to the electrical components either through some seal leak or through condensation. To give you some background.  I didn't install either of these camera's.  They were installed last year by someone else.  I inherited them when I took a position in IT support here in Feb of this year.

Ohh I understand, is odd that this occurred to this camera. This camera in fact is fine if mounted outdoors. We have one for over 2 Years in our building outside on a corner and is been exposed to heat, Rain, Storms etc. I guess whoever mounted the camera didn't sealed the connectors correctly and the camera got water damaged.

itguyjc, perhaps you can help me out a little. I am in the same situation regarding a corroded port - so was going to replace with a keystone jack. I am not that familiar with setting this up. 

 

I have 6 wires in the cable from the old keystone connector: white, yellow, orange, purple, blue & brown

 

Where do I punch these down onto in the cat 5 keystone?

So I just tried it. I setup the wires that I had (only the 6) and put them into the correct Keystone pin port and left the others empty. I connected it up to my POE switch and it all works. I just need to seal the keystone so it doesn't corrode like the one that came with the camera.

Anything to keep the water out. I would think for ease of disassemble if you have to, use something like peel and seal. That way the sealant just peals off easily instead of caulk or silicone.

You can use a junction box to make your connection weather proof. This way you can service the camera and keep the connections dry preventing any further situations.
