Can a SmartWire-DT connector be removed from the cabling after it has been crimped in place?

No. Device plugs may not be removed once they have been crimped to the flat cable. When a SmartWire-DT device plug
is crimped to the flat cable, the insulated displacement connections pierce through the insulation and one of the wires is
hole-punched open to identify the node position on the network. Therefore, the device plugs should not be removed once crimped on the flat cable. If the device plug is not in the desired location and/or if it was installed backwards or upside down, it can be left in place and defeated with the use of SWD4-SEL8-10 device plug jumper.
