    I have a Mitutoyo 543-252B digimatic indicator. The cable seems to be Mitutoyo part #905xxx

    It looks like:[​IMG]

    They are quite expensive. Does anyone know of a plug that might be substituted.

    Edit: Approximate dimensions for socket are: 10.5X4.9 mm; contacts are about 1.7 mm on center.
    Thanks. John

    My guess is that it's a custom cable. How else could they get ~$50 for it. :eek:
    Sure has kept me from buying one. :(

    Ken, Thanks.

    If I can't find one cheap, I may just solder some Be-Cu strips to a PCB and keep pressure with a piece of sponge -- or even solder directly to the contacts in the indicator. They are just like a card edge connector etched on a PCB.

    I can't justify spending $40 for a simple plug when the whole indicator, new in-box, was not much more on ebay. John
