Power line cord for Heathkit IM-2202 meter
« on: February 04, 2017, 08:45:13 pm »
I'm looking for a Power line cord for my IM-2202 meter. 3 round pins in a triangle. Anyone know where I can find one.

Ugh been there. Never found out what it was. If there's enough room left in the case it might be easier to use a nibbler to reshape the hole and stick a standard IEC socket on it. Have done this to a couple of Heathkit things over the years.

They show up on EBay from time to time.  I believe the original use for these connectors was on "business machines", such as adding machines.  They were used on medical equipment, until someone managed to connect a set of EKG leads (with banana-like plugs) into one and electrocuted a patient.

That actually doesn't surprise me. Humans are silly animals.

Good Lord, haven't seen one of them in years.  I second Singed on the IEC socket.
That which doesn't kill you still requires a co-pay.
