I've purchased a secondhand ECoSDetector from Hattons, however it unfortunately didn't come with a ECoSLink cable.  Now this wasn't mentioned at the time of purchase, so I could probably simply send it back to Hattons and obtain a refund.  However I'd like to keep it if at all possible.

I have found a UK online supplier who has one spare cable in stock for £15.  My only concern at this point is that I could purchase the cable and then find out that the ECoSDetector is faulty.  I'll then be stuck with a cable I don't need.

Does anyone know if there is a suitable alternative available from anywhere?  The connectors appear to be standard mini-DIN plugs.

Perhaps I'm overthinking this and I should simply go ahead and buy the spare cable?  Ã°Å¸ËœÂ³

Any advice or opinion gratefully received Ã°Å¸â€˜Â

If you bought it through Hattons secondhand hopefullly it was tested and works fine and obviously the price was far better than a new one they are pretty solid units mine is at least 8 year old and still running fine, So you could send it back if it were faulty.
So the £15 for the ecoslink cable is not a bad gamble price and i would not be tempted to make one up as the internal wiring has to be correct to the Ecos as you dont want to be blowing up your detector or Ecos

Thanks for the opinion Brian.  I can't fault your logic, although I do wonder if Hattons have tested the unit given the lack of cable.  Of course they might have used the cable to test it and then forgotten to put it back into the packaging?

I think a quick email to Hattons might be a good idea.

Here is the manual

The cable is a mini-din cable. If you are patient we can provide the pinouts - unfortunately the cable is not available until next week.

Thanks Ahjay, much appreciated.  If I hit a brick wall sourcing the cable I'll be in touch, waiting a week or two won't be a problem.
