Why not? I've linked up DZ11s to the distribution panel PCB with a
straight ribbon cable and had no problems.

The RFI filters effectively swap odd and even pins in the cable (the
pins are straight through the filter but of course you look at them
from opposite sides). That's why the short ribbon cables between the
filters and the distribution panel are not straight through but have
crossover connections.. But if you remove both the filter and the
crossover cable it will work as you expect.
