    I have a mason meter which measures current voltage amps and power and has a data storage unit. I got the cables tangled on my bench and pulled the cables out the plug. I asked my supplier for a new one and they don't have, I asked what was needed to make one and they didn't have an answer.

    Attached are the pictures of the plug.

    The Plug is a 3 pin plug 4.78mm long x 2.8 mm wide

    I normally purchase all my components from Mantech in South Africa but need to be specific when ordering.

    Many thanks

    That looks like it might be a micro JST plug and socket: https://www.google.com/search?q=met...w=1&tbm=isch&q=micro+jst+servo+plugs&imgdii=_

    JST also makes IDC versions, at least for the part with female sockets, which might be an easier way to go if you don't have that crimping equipment. DigiKey carries them, the assortment seems limited. The male pin part is very difficult to crimp. You may find it easier just to replace both parts.
