Can anyone recomend suitable connectors for stepper motors.
I want to be able to easily dissconnect the motors.
I have the 4 wire type so I guess I'll need a 5 pole connector to accomodate the screening.
The motors are rated at 6 amps.
Any ideas and names of suppliers most appreciated.

Since I stared fitting machine I have standardised on 4 pin XLR plugs.
They are pretty universal and you are guaranteed a re supply of the same item quickly.
Also available from RS, Farnell and CPC but I think Maplins have discontinued the 4 pin ones.John S -
I can do you a bag of 10 plugs and 10 sockets for... £6 Inc p&p.
Send me a PM if you’re interested, you should note they are not the latching sockets but worked well for me.
Lee those look like din sockets, I didnt think the current handling was that good!
Irving those are the ones I use but have to drill them out to take the 4 core cable I use! but they work fine.
Whatever you use get good quality latching connectors, one loose plug and that's a fried driver and a load of hassle.

I have found the Lumberg screw locking DIN connectors very good. Although they are officially 5 Amp, they are so over-engineered that 6 or 7 amps souldn't faze them.http://www.rapidonline.com/productin...66501#techspec
After looking at DIN, XLR etc. I also settled on the chassis plug that Irving2008 mentioned, although I bought mine from Maplin and paid more than that ebay price :sad:. I like them because they are compact, can't fall out, and have a good current rating (for my needs). Recommended.
