Sennheiser G3 DC power connectors
Posted 11 June 2011 - 05:42 PM
Old connectors into a new receiver do seem to work, but can shake loose really easily. What I'd ideally do is solder new connectors onto the outputs of my old aerial amps, but I'm struggling to track any down. Was wondering if anyone had come across this and has a source for suitable connectors?

Useful to know, but I'm using stock of older ADAs. I assume that introducing the supply voltage to the BNC won't be a trivial DIY task.

I think your missing the point. The OP already has the kit to do this job. he doesn't need to sell off the old DAs at all just get the right connectors. what difference does the 8 small cables make powering the receivers when the back of the rack is on and all is connected?
As the old ASPs are still functioning and are not on the JFMG rate card many hire companies will be doing just this as I will be in due course.

Our existing paddle aerials and ADAs all work with Channel 38.

They're out on a job just now but I will try to do so when they return. I seem to remember that the connector has some yellow to it, if that is any help. The central pin is smaller than the G2 packs, but the outer diameter of the socket is the same, hence why it is possible to get them working but with a somewhat shaky connection.

Also discovered that the "wall warts" are too wide to fit in adjacent sockets on some of my 6-way adaptors, increasing the annoyance factor.
