This is the cable to the laser on my laser cutter. It's 2mm pitch. I need to build a new cable and I've been looking and looking for what it is, but no luck. If anyone knows, I'd really appreciate it.

EDIT

If I break out my loupe, I can see there is a very tiny "ZJT" embossed above the first position.

    \$\begingroup\$ If you don't care about the latch though, any latchless square 2mm female connector should fit into the board header. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @DKNguyen - I may have to do that. I'll need to anchor the cable securely by the socket for the drag chain anyway, so the friction of the socket and pins might be enough for it to stay put. \$\endgroup\$ Mar 23 at 19:46
