O/T need a round 8 pin male din similar to this

I am looking for a round, 8 pin din panel socket similar to this. To connect to SLC 500 ect..

Different manufactures call them by different names like bulk head, sockets, ports ect....
Does any have a idea as to where to get some of these?

Any help is appreciated, Thank you.

Google Amphenol and see if that gets you what you're looking for.

since you do not tell us what is on the back side of the connector, it looks like a MENCOM ethernet connector. www.mencom.com 770-534-4585
note- they are one of my vendors and I am not associated with the company.

It is not an ethernet connector, It needs to be a 8 PIN MINI DIN like on a SLC 500 in the style of the photo.

I have never seen the Mini DIN 8 as one but.... this is what I would do

Buy our CP7 adapter, this will convert the mini din 8 to a DB9, then you can use a DB9 bulkhead

We use to sell these, you can see the DB9 in the picture https://www.plccable.com/controllogi...-hardware-kit/

When you say "9 PIN MINI DIN like on a SLC", that makes no sense. The SLC series of PLC's has DB9 ports and RJ45 ports (which are the same ones used for Ethernet). The MicroLogix series uses an 8 pin Mini DIN connector and if you're looking for a bulkhead pass through with that connector on either side (or one side for that matter) you won't find it. The DIN connector that Rockwell uses is a proprietary connector that is keyed so it will not interface with a standard 8 pin Mini DIN connector or plug.

I'm not sure you're going to find one that fits.

The only SLC-500 controller that has an 8-pin Mini-DIN connector is the SLC-5/04, and that's keyed and pinned for Data Highway Plus.

If you're trying to have a universal connector for both SLC-500 and MicroLogix controllers, you're better off using DB9 than the 8-pin Mini-DIN that's on the MicroLogix itself. Those are keyed and pinned differently than the connector for the SLC-5/04 DH+ port.

I've never seen a comparable DH+ style Mini-DIN connector available in a bulkhead style. Even Grace Engineering, the market leader in PLC-specific bulkhead connectors, doesn't offer one that I can find.

Thats why I started selling kits... NFPA70e

Anyway... use a CP7 to convert the mini din to a DB9 then you can use a DB9 bulkhead, then you can use this adapter to get back to the mini din if needed https://www.plccable.com/allen-bradl...cm6-1784-pcm5/
