Hello all,

I am hoping this forum can solve the mistery.

I am trying to identify a connector pictured below and maybe even where can I get them (feeling lucky today ;-))

Thank you in advance!

Thanks rjenkinsgb! They are 20 pin connectors, but not all pins are symetrical, as you can see int he pictures. Some of the pins are a bit off-set.
Are we talking about the same thing? Thanks again!

They are DIN 41622 series.

eg. a TE 1-1393726-4 plug:


And Telegartner J00046A0908 socket:


The keying offsets are clearly visible in photos, though they do not appear to be detailed in the data sheet sketches.

There could possibly be both keyed and unkeyed versions - I'd check with whatever suppliers before you order the parts.


Edit - clarification. DIN 41618 and 41622 share the same general designs - but 618 have even pin spacing and 622 have the asymmetric layouts.

A lot of suppliers seem to list both types together, which is why the data sheets do not always show the offsets.

These old German data sheets have the more specific info and mechanical drawings for the two series.

Where did you find this old connector?

It looks like the connector used by the German cable TV systems that had the enhanced information system in the 1990s - (supplemental text for long-format versions of news headlines, movie credits, weather by city...).

Hello gophert, It is rather old, but still in use by professionals studio flash manufacturers to connect power generator with the flash head.
