Part name/number for AC plug
« on: May 20, 2006, 04:44:42 AM »

I received an in house built power supply for some tube mics off ebay(quad supply for 4 KM5X mics).Unfortunately the ac cable wasn't included and the seller isn't replying.I will need to wire mire own ac cable but have never seen the socket utilised and hence don't know the part number.Nor where to order it.

Externally the socket looks XLRish and is of similar dimension.In a circular cavity are 2 raised cylinders, to accept pins (say 1.5mm diameter hole in 3mm post),these seem to be for + and - legs.Between the pillars and offset to one side is a pin which obviously must recive a sheath.This is earth.

Internally on the barrel of the part I can read AXR-LNE -32,250V 6A.Though there is more text that obscured by positioning.

also in this supply I see no fuse,is that normal ?And no termination of the grounds on the xlr outs?

all help  appreciated

Hi

This connector was very common in the UK in the 1980's and was eventually replaced by the cheaper plastic IEC cord used everywhere today.

Canford Audio in the UK still sell them, I believe, but their site had issues when I tried to access it this morning.

If you Goggle search XLR LNE it will take you to the link.

I still use these on the AC filter to my recorder.

I suggest you look into just using a Neutrik Powercon pair of connectors. Affordable. Need only a 15/16" mounting hole on the chassis.

Hi

Replacing the the entire connector pair is probably the best option though involves some filing/drilling of the case metalwork. The LNE had the same body as original male XLR's, so is skinny with fixing holes on the vertical centre line. The Neutriks are the new standard body shape that's fatter with offset screw holes.

Taking the 33609 as an example, in its first issue it used Cannon EP power connectors with a 4 pin for ac and 5 pin for the dc versions.

To comply with regulations, the EP4 was changed to the LNE because it connected the ground to the unit before the power. This involved a black adaptor plate that covered the previous hole and is probably the tidiest way of modding the unit that's the topic of this thread.

The 33609's use of the LNE was fairly short before they went over to the IEC plastic connector everyone uses. If there's room on his panel, fitting this connector to an adaptor plate is probably the best option as the cable connector is available everywhere.
