I've purchased some scales for use with a mini milling machine and the open source DRO-550 digital readout platform. They are essentially equivalent to permamenet mount digital vernier calipers so that the X/Y/Z position of the milling table can be tracked and displayed. The end product is shown below with the included LCD readout:
Many scales use a standard mini USB connector even though the protocol is more SPI-like, however these use a 4-pin connector that I'd like help identifying. In the first photo the top scale of the ruler is 1/64" so it appears pin spacing is either 1/32" or 0.8mm, which I've also confirmed by measurement to reduce parallax.
The following photo taken on a different angle shows there are two rows of pins although they are physically connected so it is a 4-pin connector. The overall outer dimensions of the protrusion that pushes into the socket is around 0.2" / 5.2mm wide by 0.12" / 3mm high, so a little smaller than a mini USB.
I'd prefer not to cut the cables and re-terminate so wondered if this is a standard connector type that anyone can identify?
