    Some while ago we had a conversation on the Chinese 4 pin plugs and sockets.
    The type usually sold are not suitable for voltages over 48 volts as they have male pins on the bulkhead sockets.

    Golden Bollocks [ aka Jonathan ] came up with an alternative, I ordered a few and can't find the bastard things.

    Link to the thread or seller please ?

    Loads of dead links or the male fittings, can't even find the email but it might have been thru ebay and not trawling thru 100's of pages.

    Anyone got a link to 4 pin female bulkhead sockets ?

    Regarding the Chinese plugs, is it possible to remove the pins for soldering?

    Thanks for the link but fired off another email to China, searched high and low and can't find the ones I bought ? but thinking about it now I might not have ordered them after all.

    Still need the reversed sockets to the ones shown, it's illegal to use these on commercial equipment at greater than 30 v DC

    I know it doesn't really apply as XY and Z are always connected but the A axis is mainly left unconnected and any stray chips can easily short the drivers out.

    Remember I'm working on commercial metal cutting equipment and need to follow wiring regs.

    You used to be able to get a flip lid case for them at one time to keep dirt out. Don't know if they changes things or not? they spun as yo tightened them up as not to interfere with the locking ring.
