Default Motorola Minitor VI 6 Amplifier Charger DIN Alerting Pinout ?

Does anyone have a definitive pinout for the Minitor 6 amplified charger DIN connector? Ive seen lots of varying and conflicting info on various forums and posts around the Net, mostly 5+ years old stuff so it may or may not apply to the new 6 model.
Im looking to setup an external relay to trip lights and a buzzer when the Minitor 6 goes off. Ive got the DIN cable, have the LED lights and buzzer, 12 volt power supply, will need to go get a relay but definitely need to have the correct triggers!

The user guide for the V had the pinout info in it. If you've the charger amp for the VI, do you have the user guide for it?

Better yet, I found the manual online. Here's a link to it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3k...ew?usp=sharing

Accessory connector info and pin outs start on page 7.

Thanks again! Maybe you or someone else can help with wiring now. I thought I had it, but maybe not.

Ive got a single flashing LED light right now Im testing with, a 110v wall power supply to 12v .75amp, and the Minitor 6 amplified charger.

Power supply plugged into the wall, ground connected to ground of the LED light. Positive from the power supply connected to Pin 2 dry contact, and then Pin 3 dry contact connected to the positive for the LED light. Tones should drop, trip the relay and pass that power through to power the LED Light, correct? I plan to do a relay setup for the full system but im just testing right now to get the correct wiring down.

Thanks!

This does seem correct yes. Did you ever give it a try?

Yes I tried that - couldnt get the external LED I had hooked up to light or any indication anything was happening. Hoping someone here had a working alert system that could explain how theyve got it setup! Thank you!

I know this is a year old, but figured it could help someone. I'm still looking for good information on a 5 pin cable with a ground that conducts and is not just a shield.
