I have a 120VAC, 0.01 amp motorized ball valve that I need to plug into a control box. A pcb inside the box turns the valve on and off. The valve is shipped with an attached 2-wire cable that ends in bare leads. The system is designed to handle multiple 120VAC components inside the box, so I can't switch to a lower voltage DC valve.
I'm looking for a safe, panel-mount connector to attach to the valve's bare leads.
I've previously used barrel power connectors I had available, but these are only rated to around 30V. I've looked at IEC 320-C7 type plugs, which have a great panel mount female connector, but I can only find IEC 320-C7 cables that are pre-assembled. I'd prefer to solder the valve's leads onto a plug end, like with a barrel or audio connector, instead of attaching it to another set of leads.
I think it would be dangerous to run 120vac through the barrel power connectors (only rated to 30V), correct?
Is there a better type of connector to do this? Or do I need to solder or crimp the valve's bare leads to an IEC 320-C7 plug?
Edit: After researching IEC 320-C7 cables more, I think they're only available with factory terminated cable. Here's a link to a DIY site for making your own, but I need something that isn't hacked. I think I'll use Anderson Power Pole Connectors (as recommended below) or JST SM connectors.
