I would like to build a soldering station for a Hakko 907 soldering iron, but I don't know the name of the connector what I'm going to need.

enter image description here

Here is a link for the soldering iron that I have ordered:

  • Can someone tell me what is the name of the female connector what I'm going to need?
  • Is it possible to mount this connector onto the front panel of my case?

I saw similar connectors but all of them were made for cables, not for cases. Probably I saw completely different connectors.

This looks similar to a circular DIN connector (not to be confused with mini-DIN).

This type of connector existed for a long time. Panel-mount female jacks for this type of connector do exist (example).

  • \$\begingroup\$ It isn't a DIN connector, it has a central spigot. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Nov 29, 2014 at 18:43
  • \$\begingroup\$ @LeonHeller DINs with a central peg appear to exist as well. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @LeonHeller What looks like a central locating pin is probably just the shell alignment dimple that is hard to identify in the picture. Most TC soldering irons use pretty standard DIN connectors from what I have seen, the locking ring may have to be removed if you use a standard panel socket but is not required in practice. \$\endgroup\$

The Hakko part number for the panel connector is B2005 and should be available from them as a replaceable part.

The name of the connector is 5 pin GX16 aviation connector.
