Title: Mysterious connector (fan of the DP832)
Post by: ElektronikLabor on March 19, 2014, 08:30:34 pm
Hello,
I'm searching for the name of the connector for the blowers of the power supply Rigol DP832; I can't find anything :(
Below 3 pictures of the connector.

Please help me
Thanks :)

Looks like a JST PH connector. But your's has 4 wires coming off it, normally there's only two.

Thanks Legion,
the JST PH looks for me a little bit different; here a pic of it:

The JST PH has only one bar at one side; the connector I'm searching for has two parallel bars. Maybe it's a some sort of variation?

BTW: The connector has 2 pins; Rigol violated it with two parallel blowers (2 wires per pin)  :palm:

looks like the JST XH series [2.5mm pitch] - try digikey for them

Thanks,
That looks promising!

I will buy the crimp contacts tomorow in a local store and order the housings today :)

Thumbs up for the competence of both of you, notsob and Legion!  :-+
