Connector ID?

Started by Phil Hobbs August 28, 2019
Hi, all,

I have this very nice Mitutoyo FS-110 metallurgical microscope with a 
slightly mismatched lamp housing (wrong connector).  It works okay with 
a separate DC power supply, but I'd much rather use the variable 
transformer built into the microscope base.

Mitutoyo uses connectors like these, which I have never seen anywhere 
else.  They're sort of like a cross between DIN and Cannon connectors:

Anybody know what kind this is?

Thanks

Phil Hobbs

Looks like a Hirose. Hang on I'll find a part number.... like this, https://www.digikey.com/products/en?keywords=HR1731-ND If it's Hirose it will have a little HRS emblem. (all sorta mushed together) George H.
