I need to find the grounding connector/socket (male) like in the photo for my device, but cannot find what it is exactly called or if it is rather something custom-made.

    \$\begingroup\$ Arsenii - if you are intending to use equipment such as connectors and wires in a regulated enviroment, such as a hospital, you may have to comply with colour and other specifications, including DIN 42801 compliance. \$\endgroup\$ Mar 3, 2020 at 18:56

    \$\begingroup\$ If you are developing for medical work you should know all this already. \$\endgroup\$ Mar 4, 2020 at 17:39
  • \$\begingroup\$ It is a EN60601 requirement for all medical equipment sold in Europe. Other international medical standards allow a different connector but this one is accepted in any country. \$\endgroup\$ Mar 4, 2020 at 18:30
