U67 Connector: Correct Terminations
« on: December 09, 2023, 08:24:32 AM »

I am looking for a detailed wiring diagram for a female u67 connector.
I have a blue binder female connector in my swivel mount and I want to put a proper tuchel female connector.
I’m not sure if wires are numbered or what color they might be ?
I’m looking for something very straightforward so I can wire a new female connector properly.
Also if this can include the grounding wires please.
The space to solder these wires is very small,
I am going to attempt this on my own once I know where each wire goes :-)
Also I wanted to make sure that I can use this female connector portion inside my swivel mount ? This picture is of the female connector but for the power supply.
And yes I realize I have to rekey this connector.

Pins are numbered on Tuchel and Binder connectors which are interchangeable, i.e. each will fit where the other was previously installed.

Pin #1: Audio (+)
Pin #2: Audio (-)
Pin #3+#7: Ground and Shield
Pin #4 Heater
Pin #5 B+
Pin #6 nothing

Make sure to connect a wire between cable ground/shield and connector housing. The best place: clamp the wire under the strain relief bridge held in place with two screws at the rear end of the connector housing.

Thank you Klaus for responding.
sorry for the novice questions...
Just so I am clear,
you said Make sure to connect a wire between cable ground/shield and connector housing
By wire you mean Pin #3+#7: Ground and Shield ?

Connect ground and shield as mentioned, THEN solder a wire between the ground lug and either pins 3 or 7 (they are now already connected, if you follow the instructions).

I don’t know what a ground lug is ?
I apologize.
Will any kind of wire do ?
also in the picture i uploaded, it looks as though there are more than one wire connected to the strain relief or cable housing ? The copper and black wire

The ground lug on connectors is a metal bridge used as strain relief) or a metal loop/tab that electrically grounds the housing of the connector.

In my picture (by the way it's copyrighted and you should acknowledge copyrighted images!) the ground lug is the metal loop where the two black ground wires and the cable shield are soldered to. Any kind of wire will do.

On the connector pictured there are two ground wires, because separate wires were soldered to pins #3 and #7, rather than making a jumper between the pins, with only one lead out to ground the connector housing. The green wire is the actual ground wire in the cable.
