Hello all,

I'm currently adding finishing touches to a Benjolin kit ( http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-38591.html ). In my search for final parts, I'm currently looking for something that connects to the power connectors.

These are 2x8 pin connectors - that is, 16 pins total, in 2 rows of 8 pins. I believe they are called IDC connectors, and I've been told that Doepfer uses the same connectors for the power supply in some of their products.

Would anyone know the 'proper' name for these type of connectors, or maybe a good place to order them from in the US? I'm having trouble searching for them. Ideally, I'd like to find a female plug that connects to the pins with a ribbon cable, or better yet, a female plug that has 16 loose wires coming off of it. (I could simply cut apart a ribbon cable for this effect.) Something like this looks like it could be it.

Additionally, would anyone know if I should be concerned about voltage capacity or gauge of the wires / ribbons? I've never used this sort of thing for a power supply before (one will go to a power supply, the other cable will branch out a myriad of audio outputs from the circuit board via one 2x8 connector.)

Thanks in advance for any info or advice.

I'm glad I don't use Mouser, what a nightmare! These look like what you need though:

I use these from the UK, these are the ones used by Doepfer, it may help you to search a US site:

http://www.rapidonline.com/Cables-Connectors/Connectors-Multipole/IDC-Connectors/Cable-mounting-socket/63686

It is the 16 way (ref 19-0305) which I think you need...

Not sure about voltage capacity, but I use them to power my 15V system with no problems, also that may depend on the cable you use too...

Charlie
