The Bleecon connector (Belling Lee Connector) is often used for 6-way Analogue Control connections from Lighting Desk to dimmer - especially for older Strand Lighting equipment - e.g. the Tempus range.

The pin arrangement is identical to that of an 8-pin DIN Connector, the main difference being the presence of a "pull-to-unlock" locking ring on the plug shroud.

A standard 8-pin DIN connector, and also the Preh locking variant, will mate with a Bleecon chassis or line socket.

The shroud on the plug prevents a Bleecon plug mating with a DIN chassis socket. The correct procedure here is to use a short bleecon-DIN adaptor, although in an emergency loosening or removing the plug shroud may suffice.
