    Trying to find this connector

    This is a cable connector that came with my square 1.5Kw spindle. I need to find a replacement connector so I can make a new cable.
    Attachment 422954


    The cable connector connects to the female located on the spindle.
    Attachment 422956


    If anyone knows where I can get this connector, or even what this type connector is called so I can do some searching.

    Re: Trying to find this connector

    I have seen some sold on a chinese site, can't remember atm. Mine i bought recently from Lapp, the guys that supply cable, but the "genuine" good quality one's from Lapp and Rs components are quite expensive.
    Think i paid around $50 AUS, for the complete male and female

    I just had a look at the Lapp site...here the plug is around $20 AUD, you do have Lapp in America

    Hope this helps

    Link?

    I would pay $20 for the male plug. My other option is to take the original connector off the cable it is on and make dongle that connects to a more common connector.

    Try this link: https://lappdigitallibrary.cld.bz/LA...og/301/#zoom=z. It's to the North American catalog (and the site).

    Looks like it is an HA 4 connector. Searching on Ebay I was able to get four (used) connectors with housings delivered for under $50.

    Thanks again for the help.

    This looks like a Harting connector, https://www.elfadistrelec.no/Web/Dow...6/04347126.pdf

    Re: Trying to find this connector

    I am a industrial electrician by trade and reading people writing that metal connectors do not cause fire makes me wounder where they get this claim from. I have seen die moulded aluminium connectors melted from earth faults, blown wide open from series arcing over time. Sure, I would feel much safer about metal style connectors but saying they do not cause fire is upright wrong.

    Technically, they don't cause fire, the shorting does

    Yes, shorting to the metal housing, I just wanted people to know that connectors made with metal housing do at some occations make really hot sparks as well. But sure, if it is on your own hobby mill, and you are not running lights out I would not be afraid to use a noname connector from china.

    wmgeorge,

    I am a master donut maker not a Master Electrician like you and would like to know how you determined the current capacity, internal resistance of the terminals, dielectric material, voltage failure or breakdown rating and thermal properties of the connectors jalessi posted just by looking at a picture and not using any type of test equipment.

    Please educate all of us less informed apprentice hobby electricians that don't have x-ray vision.

    Trying to find this connector

    I work in a power plant, we have metal 480v 3 phase 100amp welding plugs all over the place. They are all metal bodies.
    We also use metal Amphenol plugs on tons of control wires.
    Don’t mangel the pins and make sure you have proper insulation and strain reliefs, metal plugs are fine
