Help Identifying Electrical Connector
I need to connect to the pictured 2-pin connector on the back of my garage door opener. I can't search for the piece I need online because I can't identify the name or designation of the connector. This is for the battery backup for the door and carries 24VDC. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
looks propriety to me. If you have to have that connector call the company that makes the opener. But my suggestion would be to cut off that connector and wire in a SAE Extension cable. Its a very common quick disconnect cable.
Example but they come in many different gauges.
I tend to doubt you'll find it. But you don't need the connector--just wire it directly.
Agree with the “direct” wiring ideas above. If you go to an auto parts store you’re bound to find some type of plug/receptacle if you still need it to disconnect occasionally. Maybe something in the trailer wiring or battery charger areas... ideally you would solder something in line, but crimp connectors would work too.
Just try to find something with similar size wire and pins as it probably pulls a decent current to power the motor at 24 volts.
If you know the name of the manufacturer and model number of the garage door opener, you may be able to find the connector listed in the parts diagram/parts list on the manufacturer's web site. Also you can try http://www.searsparts direct.com. It may be listed there. These sources may even provide information for mating connector and ordering information.
That looks like some type of panel-mounted Molex connector. Do you have the instructions for the opener by any chance? If not, you could visit the manufacturer's website and put in the Model of the opener which would likely come up with a copy of the instructions as well as parts lists and details of the connector and power supply..
I agree with Phil D. Looks like a Molex or Tyco (AMP) connector. You could peruse the Molex or Tyco website and search 2 pin connectors, but that may take more time than finding the parts list for the opener.
Here is the mating connector from TE (Tyco /Amp).
The connector in your picture is the following:
The picture posted is showing the 24 VDC outlet on the operator motor drive.
The 24V transformer ( supplied with the operator ) would be plugged in the outlet that supplies power to the Operator then that low voltage cord would be plugged in to the
outlet that is shown in the picture.
Many Thanks to those that offered their suggestions in chasing this piece down. The information provided by Wire Harness Mfg. was 100% on target and I am very grateful for this help.
