There are two cables - the ethernet and the a power cable. The power cable as 6 wires out of which two go to the power source of 12 V. Where do the other four wires go? What are they connected to? The ethernet cable was connected to a Jetson TK1 through a ethernet to USB connector.

I don't have enough points to post a picture, but it's on page 5 of this specification manual.

Hello,thank you for your answer. I saw that but I'm still confused as to what those wires are connected to. What is the I/O power source? Where is the IP reset?

The two wires are as below: 1. The ethernet wire is used for data reading and it can be connected to ethernet port of the pc. 2. The other colorful wire is required for powering the lidar as well as for reading the data serially. (I will recommend to use it for powering the lidar only). For power, just connect the constant DC power supply to the corresponding pins and don't connect the rest of the pins. (Note: make sure you connect the right pins to power supply as wrong connections may damage the lidar ) You can use "urg_node" package of ros for getting started with UST-10lx. Check this link, it might help you to some extent.
