Thread: How many Dinse connectors are there???

  1. #1

    Default How many Dinse connectors are there???

    I have a 200DX and looking for a couple cable connectors. Looks like the places that sell them don't have good specs or part numbers that match. The ones I need, the post is about a .508 diameter (13mm is about .511) and the length is about .65.

    I picked up a pair and they are about a .422 (11mm .433) diameter and .6 long. Too small.

    Where is a good place to pick them up and make sure I get the right ones. I like ebay, better to give your cc to one place instead of passing the card all over the net.

    The ones I found on the net, some go by stud size, next one is wire size, next one by model number, next one by hole size. Which hole the female connector or the wire side???

    Need to have a sticky thread on the connector specs.

    The small 3/8" diameter (approx) is called a DINSE 25. The larger 1/2" is called a DINSE 50. There is a larger one than that but it uses same pin diameter. There is some identification issues within the industry since DINSE came up with the design, and everyone copied them.

    The biggest issue is if you are looking for a TIG torch DINSE or a cable DINSE. The TIG torch DINSE can have varied threads in metric or standard fitting sizes. It's best to buy from the manufacturer of the TIG torch to ensure compatibility.

    It looked like my connector was a Dinse 35 and I tried a 35. It seems to be about 7/16". Looks like I need the 50. Nobody seems to call it a 50.

    Thanks for the info.

    35 is actually a misnomer. Dinse calls it a 25, but a lot of other companies label it 35. The numbering scheme is actually not bad but it references the number of square mm of copper wire as is used in Europe rather than the AWG sizes that the US uses.
    The DINSE 25 will take wire from 10-25 mm².
    The DINSE 50 will take wire from 35-50 mm². (probably where that 35 comes from?)
    The DINSE 70 will take wire from 50-70 mm²
    The DINSE 95 will take wire from 70-95 mm²
    And the DINSE 120 will take wire from 95-120 mm²
    You can see the originals here: http://dinse-us.com/products/?product_category=1066

    Of course that doesn't help when everyone uses different names and numbers for the copies.
    The pin sizes are 9mm for the 25 and 12.9mm for the 50, 70 and 95 with just different lengths for the different current capacity.
    From what I can see a lot of companies either call it a 50 or there will be a 50 somewhere in the part number. It's the little one where there seems to be more confusion.
    Reminds me of the tapered pin type where there was the rest of the industry, then Miller and they did not interchange, but looked so close. Of course then there were a lot of copies that didn't really follow either standard and just made it up as they went.

    As Mark said, buy them from the manufacturer to be safe. When people on the forum say they made "this" in a post, I always ask them to post a BOM/invoice so people know those parts, not from us, work...


    We use a 25 that is 11/32" or just under 9mm and a 50 that is .5 is 1/2" (13mm range). But the size and location of the locking pin can vary as well. Seems so simple, but a lot of things to look at.
