This is an 11-way connector pair from inside a standalone induction hob. It comprises a cable-mounted female part and a PCB mounted male part.

(Corrected due to sloppy original measuring - thanks @Passerby) Pitch is 2.5mm and pin length appears to be around 3.3mm. The female part is about 4mm wide and 8mm tall. Does anyone recognise this system?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks Andy - do you have a range name / number as a starting point? No worries if not, wouldn't be the first time I have trawled their catalogue! \$\endgroup\$ – stefandz Feb 10 '16 at 15:06
  • \$\begingroup\$ @OleksandrR. The housing seems a lot smaller than that. \$\endgroup\$ – stefandz Feb 10 '16 at 15:16

    \$\begingroup\$ Are you sure its 2.54 and not slightly smaller? \$\endgroup\$ – Passerby Feb 10 '16 at 15:20

    \$\begingroup\$ @Passerby I think you're right - I was seeing what I wanted to see. More diligent measuring (outer pin edge to outer pin edge less measured width of pin / (numPositions - 1)) gave 2.5mm. Looks like it is the JST XH. \$\endgroup\$ – stefandz Feb 10 '16 at 15:26

Without precise measurements it's a little hard to tell, but I am pretty sure that its a JST XH series connector. A datasheet for these connectors can be found here.

The OP has since tested and confirmed this to be the correct part.

    \$\begingroup\$ If OP's measurements of 2.54 are true, then these are not a match. \$\endgroup\$ – Passerby Feb 10 '16 at 15:20
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Passerby Why exactly? The only measurements provided are the pitch (which matches) and the pin length (which OP claims are only 3.3mm long but looking at the photos they seem a bit longer) \$\endgroup\$ – jms Feb 10 '16 at 15:27
  • \$\begingroup\$ @jms taking a look at the datasheet you link, the pitch is 2.5, not 2.54mm. My mistake, but your answer looks correct allowing for that. \$\endgroup\$ – stefandz Feb 10 '16 at 15:31

    \$\begingroup\$ @stefandz To be honest I didn't trust in the precision of your measurements, as anything close to 2.5 mm is easily interpreted as 0.1". I looked at the photo and compared it to stuff in my parts box, then double checked with the datasheet. \$\endgroup\$ – jms Feb 10 '16 at 15:42

    \$\begingroup\$ @Passerby Absolutely true, and I worded my reply quite badly. I should have said "which matches assuming less than perfect accuracy of measurement". I was going to, but the edit time limit caught up with me. \$\endgroup\$ – jms Feb 10 '16 at 16:05
