Hameg IEC C14 power connector
« on: December 22, 2019, 09:03:28 pm »
Hi all
Today the power connector of one of my analog scopes (an Hameg) imploded when I put the power cable in.
Maybe it was just a case of aged plastic or maybe was already fractured and I never noticed it.
I tried to look around on the Internet for the same type of IEC C14 power connector, this one has a fuse inside the voltage selector, which simply completes the circuit with a pair of metal tabs out of five depending on how the plastic selector is rotated. 
Anyway, I didn't find it anywhere.
The most similar I found is this one https://www.amazon.it/dp/B078PFFL46/ which would fit but it has a switch I don't need. Maybe I could remove the switch and replace it with a fuse.

Any idea where I could find one like the original instead ?

Must fit in a hole 45 x 20 mm.

Or any suggestion about repairing it in some other way ?

Worst case I would use a simple IEC C14 connector and fill the empty space with some kind of placeholder, drill it, and put a fuse there.

Thanks.

I searched almost every place I know for the original connector and I didn't find one.  :-//

I fixed it by connecting just the 220V path and dropping the other 3 voltages, and added a fuse holder to keep the fuse that originally was inside the voltage switcher.

It's nice, but if anyone discover a place where the original connector can still be bought, please let me know !

So, I googled using my google-fu. Not the original, but I did find this, if it might be of use?

WOW !
Thank you.
I searched for almost two days and visited all the online sellers I know and didn't find it.
It looks exactly right... what did you search to find it with google ?

I tried iec c14 power module, iec c14 fuse, iec c14 voltage selector, and many more.
NOTHING
Maybe I'm just blind.

Not sure if they sell to final users, but they have an online shop and I see they have also distributors...

EDIT: I checked it, they ask your data to send a request to the distributor of your choice for the articles you put in the cart ... not exactly straightforward... I'll investigate.

I searched for "IEC socket 4 voltage selector", which you searched for too. But crucially, I then clicked on "images", then started scrolling down, till I seen something that looked similar. So you weren't far off the right track.

It might be better if you ask local distributors, For Italy that will be :

http://www.elsap.it/

http://www.orvem.com/

http://www.rutronik.com/

They have distributors on other countries too, listed here : https://www.mpe-connector.de/index.php?lang=en&menu=3
