Title: Amphenol MC4F advice needed
Post by: Vertig07 on November 02, 2017, 01:15:36 PM
So I'm building a 4-pin amphenol to 3-pin XLR adapter for a Unidyne 545s. I'm no electronics master, but I've done my share of fairly intense DIY projects and for the most part, can build cables in my sleep.

That said, this amphenol connector is a mystery to me... The pins are hollow, and are inset almost 1/4" into the plastic housing, so reaching them with a soldering iron could be a very messy business (and could also melt the plastic). So I'm guessing this is intended to be a solderless connector.

Also, there is a cable clip/tension piece that I haven't quite been able to figure out (see picture).


Does anyone else have experience with this connector? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
