Binding posts that accept shrouded 4mm plugs
« on: July 01, 2013, 08:27:00 pm »
One of the binding posts on my home made power supply broke yesterday and I was wondering if binding posts available that accept shrouded 4mm banana plugs?  If no posts are available (I didn't find any) are there 4mm sockets available that accept shrouded 4mm plugs?

Yes, there is. TTi is using them on their power supplies, but I do not know where to buy them.

Yes I saw that about TTI - I suppose one could maybe order spares from TTI (but I bet that would be expensive).

Thanks grbolet, nice find.  Sadly they are out of stock.

I guess looking at the picture the shrouded banana posts have to stick out a little more from the panel to accommodate the shroud.  Maybe I'll just settle for sockets that accept shrouded plugs:  http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/4-mm-test-plugs-sockets/0404137/    Interestingly, all the shrouded sockets I found were in the UK !

Thanks guys, the eBay ones look tempting and I'll probably get a sample set, but they look a little shallow to fit the whole of the shrouded banana plug.

With those cheap ebay ones, if you are soldering anything to the tag, make sure you have a banana plug cable plugged in to act as a heat sink whilst soldering, or you are not going to be happy with the results

Thanks notsob, good tip.  I've had those plastic sockets melt on me before.  Not sure the expensive ones fair much better, or do they?

Not that you're meant to solder to a blade terminal.

Even the eBay cheapies aren't consistently bad. I got a bag of twenty or so real cheap a while ago and heated the ever living crap out of them (wasn't really paying much attention) and they're perfectly fine. I expect many of the expensive ones do well too.

A quick follow-up.  The 4mm sockets I got from eBay that accept shrouded plugs are pretty nice.   The fixing nut is tricky to get on right, but it works in the end.  Sockets themselves are nice.

Farnell also carries a multitude of different shrouded 4mm banana plugs, 47 or so.

Search for 'shrouded' in Connectors -> Test -> Banana Plugs & Jacks.

Another manufacturer is Stäubli, but they don't appear to be as widely available as the SKS Hirschmann ones.
