Identify This Connector Type?

01/25/2019 12:21 AM

Can anyone identify this connector brand / type please ?

The pitch between pins is 2.5 mm

It has no distinguishing marks.

industrial control and monitoring system , the branding of the equipment cant be mentioned here due to complicated professional interests.

The plug in question is for low voltage sensor connections.

its similar but doesnt have those clips on the side.

i did try searching the Molex products on my local distributors website but there was nothing the same.

if it came to the crunch and the pin sizes were the same with the same spacing i could maybe cut the clips off and use them but the exact same match would give better peace of mind.

thankyou

Yes it seems quite a bit smaller like a mini molex....I have seen mini pin connectors on power boards...

Did see my question was already asked... I’d investigate Schneider Electric, or possible Phoenix brands.

IIRC, Phoenix Contact has similar connectors in the same color (at least nearly).

I agree with Tornado, the green generally means it came from Phoenix Contact.

It would help to get a view of the mating end so we can get a better look at those funny protrusions. Like others have said the color suggests Phoenix connectors but I have not come across any Phoenix connectors with crimp pins.

square pins and locking clips , they must be under " PCB connectors " somewhere.

The colour seems to match Phoenix but after browsing through 2000 pages i still didnt find it either

It's possible this is a proprietary design unique to this particular company...Why can't you contact the company for parts?...If on the other hand you know the brand, you might find something on Ebay....

I think they manufacture in volumes too small to develop proprietary connectors.

The manufacturer might consider their product to be ~ high end cutting edge.

companies in some spheres sometimes like to retain captive rights . .

Would you say that those protrusions are for keying, polarization (180 degrees) or retention?

I've never come across any .100" pitch square pin headers/connectors like that in my 35 yr. plus time in the field. Definitely a unique design.

Found them.

Sprechen sie Deutsch?

These are an AmpMODU IV FEM HSG type of connector.

I was only able to find the single row versions of these, but this should at least point you in the right direction.

https://www.te.com/commerce/DocumentDelivery/DDEController?Action=srchrtrv&DocNm=925369&DocType=Customer+Drawing&DocLang=English

Next step would be to challenge your local TE rep.

Good luck with your quest.

You're welcome. It was a bit of a challenge. Ultimately, I got my first lead on the DigiKey website.
