Any idea who makes the following connector or what a compatible connector would be called?

enter image description here

I need both male and female but that company only sells female.

  • \$\begingroup\$ probably propriatery ... these are similar ... switchcraft.com/productsummary.aspx?Parent=811 ... sparkfun.com/products/11475 \$\endgroup\$ – jsotola Dec 24 '17 at 7:45
  • \$\begingroup\$ @jsotola: The first one seems similar to one I tried where the notch is square/smaller and the pins are also smaller. For the second one pins 1 and 2 are more separated than 4 and 5 and apparently are common in CB radios. They're definitely hard to find, but it appears Sterilight/Viqua also uses them: servapure.com/assets/images/viqua_440155.jpg, viqua.com/wp-content/uploads/254NM-HF.jpg, etc. \$\endgroup\$ – Nelson Rothermel Dec 25 '17 at 20:44
  • \$\begingroup\$ those have a different shell ... the alicat one uses a bayonet type fastener, the servapure uses a screw type fastener \$\endgroup\$ – jsotola Dec 25 '17 at 22:46

the picture that you posted matches this Conxall Mini-ConX® 6282-2SG-3DC

found here ... https://www.allelectronics.com/item/con-225/2-pin-twist-lock-connector/1.html

this looks like what you are looking for

  • \$\begingroup\$ Ok, I ordered Mini-Con 6282-6PG-513 and just tested. It was not completely identical, but the connection part matches exactly so it will work. The actual part would be closer to 6282-6PG-311 or 6282-6PG-315 (3-smaller plastic sleeve in the back; 11 or 15-the rubber sleeve size). Feel free to update your answer and I'll accept since you did help me narrow it down. \$\endgroup\$ – Nelson Rothermel Jan 14 '18 at 21:10
