light bulb - unusual connector
« on: Yesterday at 12:51:33 pm »
Does anyone know the connector that matches this bulb?

I know that it is used in otoscopes.

Wow that lamp looks like a 22 bullet! How strange!

Otoscopes are the only place I've ever seen those bulbs used. There are a few oddball bulbs out there that are medical specific.

By "connector" I assume you mean "lamp holder" or "socket" and if the lamp is "Heine X-01.88.056 lamp" then I would say you are looking for a "Heine X-01.88.056 lamp-holder or socket".

Based on the kind of instrument and the number of different brands available, it looks like some proprietary manufacturer-based standard.









I wonder if the "socket" is actually just the interior design of the moulded device itself, and not some separately made connector? They just make the plastic casing the right size and shape and put contacts in the proper place to make it work.

The ones I've seen have been machined metal, the "socket" is just a drilled hole in the casting with a contact on the part that attaches to the battery.

4507-1 looks far more "normal"... and I agree, the other all look like bullets.
Medical stuff is expensive, this must be their way of getting paid. I bet all the others just have the same glass bulb as 4507 installed in a proprietary base.

So I would have to dismantle it? It is a pity because it costs a lot for such a small light bulb.
I was hoping that there was a dedicated socket.

What are you trying to do? Yes the bulbs are expensive, but I've seen them last many years. Otoscopes typically don't get a lot of hours.
