Re: Tek 500 connectors or similar? A bit off topic!!!
Hi All,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Thanks for the advice.
Yes, it appears the Amphenol connectos in the 500 series are series 26 connectors. Probably the *easiest* thing for me to do is to keep using them. There are used ones available on e-bay for $12.95, likely harvested from a Tek scope. But this is like organ harvesting. If I buy that one on e-bay, do I encourage someone to strip them out of good, working plug-ins that might otherwise get sold intact to a wanting collector? It's like the ivory trade - I'd hate to encourage it. But on the flip side, if I keep using the connector I started with then it's a whole lot easier on me.
The best bet it seems would be to use one of those Amphenol Series 26-4200 connectors mentioned They omit the alignment/polarity pins of the 4100 used in the Tek plugins. But I note that they are about double the price of the used 16 pin 4100 male on e-bay. Arg. It costs a lot of money to be ethical!
