    Opus PCA-2-1215 question

    I recently got a secondhand Opus PCA-2-1215, and am trying to figure out where to get an input power connector for it (battery,ignition,ground). It looks like this:

    Anyone know where to get a replacement pigtail, or even the connector part number so I can order it from mouser/digikey? Everywhere I've searched, I've found a different style of connector, I guess they only used this style for a few of the boards before switching? Not sure.

    Just a thought Can you shave down a standard IDE harddrive power plug make it a three pin instead of 4 pin. Might work in a jam. Hard to tell size from picture. SNO

    Right now I'm using some molex pins from a hard drive plug to power it, but I don't trust them to stay in. It's 5mm just like a power supply plug so that may be possible... but I'm still worried about it staying in when in the vehicle.

    Hmm, I wonder if hot gluing the bare pins in would hold even better than hot gluing the connector in. As long as I strain relief them it shouldn't pull out at least. I'll give that a shot, thanks SNO.

    Personally, I would glue around the connecting point of the molex . As long as your not pulling anyone out of a snow bank using the wires, it should stay fine. then it would be easier to remove if necessary as well. It the HD plug is really sloppy, try some butt connectors, it they friction fit well, hot glue then in and "bob's your uncle"
