Thread: CY cable terminals
I intend to use these 4 pin, round terminals for each stepper motor this time round, something like these
so I need one female connector (that can be mounted to a plate) and one male connector per stepper
i need 4 cores per connection
cable thickness is 2.5mm
Can anybody recommend a good supplier? Part Codes, product codes etc, what to ask for?
XLR connectors can be used, they are a bit bulky and are really aimed at audio applications.
The ideal connectors are known as GX16 but it can be tricky to find female chassis versions, normally the chassis connectors are male.
I think either Jonathan or JohnS found a source...

I use the others as I like the boot on the cable end and the chassis type socket. But I decided to go with 1mm CY cable as I find the 1.5mm harder to fit into the plug and 1 mm cable is plenty big enough as long as the motor leads are kept to a reasonable length ... Clive
Worth bearing in mind the exposed pins if this is not for yourself.
Do you really need plug & socket connectors ? how many times are you going to unplug them ?
In my case I have two machines and one power supply, I have two profiles set up so that I can use either ..Clive
I can understand it with the power supply maybe, profiles will be via the software ?
With my router I am building a new control box so that will be stand alone. ...Clive
here you go.
