    I am basically looking for a decent multipole power connector that is lockable to prevent it from becoming detached.

    It needs to be suitable for external usage (ie not inside a box, but not outside), and have at least 26 connectors.

    Size is not too much of an issue, but it must not be too large.

    Cheers

    Rik

    PS I found somthing that was pretty cool, but it only had 12 pins, any suggestions with less pins are welcome also.

    See here for the one I was looking at, it's in a PDF manual.

    Assuming the ATX PSU pinout I have is correct then I will only need a 9 way connector, which would allow the usage of the connector I have found.

    Suggestions welcome still.

    Richard, what about this I found in the Rapid Electronics catalogue? Still waiting to see if I can find a source for the Burndy for you too....

    Now in my new job I have a multitude of these bleedin connectors everywhere for all sorts of currents.

    One day I might even make the off-board PSU I had planned too.:thumbsup:
