I have a Vexta stepper motor in hand with very short wires. Vexta motor

As much as I want to recrimp a cable, or directly buy a replacement for it, I couldn't find the connector type. It has 0.1" pitch and a lock to hold the cable in place. The connectorSide ViewBack view

What is its connector type?

    \$\begingroup\$ Plug, header , ( or wire to board connector) female 6 pin 0.1" pitch crimp, keyed with interlock, Mfg= ? try Molex and JST, source: Mouse , Digikey RS , others \$\endgroup\$ – Tony Stewart Sunnyskyguy EE75 Jun 21 '17 at 13:56

    \$\begingroup\$ Interlock is proprietary and may be OEM only Product > Housing,Wafer and Terminal > 2.54mm TYPE BOARD TO WIRE, interlock .. you can get without interlock too, but then not keyed for correct orientation. \$\endgroup\$ – Tony Stewart Sunnyskyguy EE75 Jun 21 '17 at 14:14

    \$\begingroup\$ Use a std connector and wire splices to existing connector and be sure to include Ferrite torroid or clam-shell for EMI and use twisted 3 wire for each phase. \$\endgroup\$ – Tony Stewart Sunnyskyguy EE75 Jun 21 '17 at 14:39
  • \$\begingroup\$ @TonyStewart.EEsince'75 I have a bunch of these steppers, all with short wires. Soldering other wires is a good option except when you have repeat the work for every single one. I would try to contact the Mfg. \$\endgroup\$ – user2513881 Jun 22 '17 at 13:10
  • \$\begingroup\$ Semi-Automated crimp connectors can be outsourced to cable mfg companies to adapt to a more common connector as well. You supply the material. They crimp it or they supply mat'l and labor with your cables. Get a few quotes. \$\endgroup\$ – Tony Stewart Sunnyskyguy EE75 Jun 22 '17 at 13:48

Seems to be a 6 pin connector wire harness originally made by OEM. Please see attached.

  • \$\begingroup\$ interlock may be a mismatch, best bet is source directly from OEM. Oriental Motor Co. \$\endgroup\$ – Tony Stewart Sunnyskyguy EE75 Jun 21 '17 at 14:38

My first reaction is that it looks like a series from JST. It's probably a Chinese knockoff of the JST line, but you'll have a hard time finding that, and then getting any real data if you do.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Concur that it looks like a JST part, could also be Molex. \$\endgroup\$ – Dan Mills Nov 12 '17 at 19:19
  • \$\begingroup\$ I don't understand the downvote. Does anyone that it's NOT a JST part? I was only trying to point the OP in one possible direction, that from my experience, might be worth looking into. \$\endgroup\$ – Olin Lathrop Nov 12 '17 at 22:09
