I am making a replacement logic board for my 3D printer, since the original board kersploded and the manufacturer won't replace it as the printer model is 3 years old (...). The original power supply brick is fine, though, so I want to reuse it, but it has a slightly unusual connector for which I haven't been able to find a suitable female part.
The power supply is a Meanwell GS220A24-R7B, supplying up to 9.2A at 24V, and it has a DIN-style connector that looks like this: Looking at the bottom-left view, the two left-hand pins are ground, and the two right-hand pins are +24VDC. I'm not sure whether the sleeve is connected to ground.
This previous answer seems good, but it would be even better if I could just use a barrel connector from my local Radio Shack equivalent, and I'd prefer not to have to buy a new crimp tool. More importantly, I don't know if there are any considerations in replacing the original four-pin connector with two pins. Might the two circuits be connected to separate transformer windings or something? Will it matter if I tie the two 24V lines together?
Basically I'm wary because there must be some reason the manufacturer chose this connector but I have no idea what it was.
