How to Terminate DMX On a Net 3 Four Port Gateway's Terminal Strip

Question

I am trying to connect to a DMX port on my Net 3 gateway. What does the DMX pinout on the 8-pin male terminal strip look like? 

Description

Use the appropriate termination preparation kit. ETC's standard termination kit (p/n 4100A1012) comes with a terminal strip variant. However, if you are connecting to Cat5 wire for DMX, please request the DMX termination preparation kit with IDC connectors (p/n 4100A1013). 

Please reference the below pinout when terminating DMX to your terminal connector. Please note: The four port gateway does not use the optional secondary data pair.
