Hello Phidgets,

I would like to power my Phidget Servo Interface from a solar panel.
In order to do this I need to create a cable from my solar-panel to the phidget.

Can you tell me the name/specification of the power connector?
This way I can buy the correct male-part.

kind regards,

Egon

Hello Chester,

Thank you for your quick reply!

Suggestion:
Is it possible to add this information to the Phidget manual of the Phidgets that have this connector?

kind regards,

Egon

Chester,

One more question.
I see that the 5.5mm x 2.1mm connector exists in two lengths:
* 9.5mm
* 14mm

Can you tell me the length of the shaft?

kind regards,

Egon
