DA40-180 instrument panel power connector


I’m am looking for information about what type of connector that fits the DiamondStar DA40-180 instrument panel power connector.

BR, Anders


I have been in electronics for 40+ years but have never seen that one before, but it looks a bit like those made by Hirose of Japan. Are there really just 2 holes in it? Where was the aircraft manufactured?

The other company which makes a lot of aircraft connectors is Positronic. I will ask someone from there if they recognise it.

This is the plug end for the socket my flying club has fitted to most of it's A/C.

We power our GPS's of it.

There are only two holes in the connector.

The aircraft is an early DA40 from 2001. I do think that it was manufactured in Wiener Neustadt in Austria.

WarleyAir, do you suggest that the plug (female) in your image will match the socket (female) that I show in my picture? Or did I misunderstand something?


Please note that you are not allowed to use that external power supply when airborne...

I have enquired on a US forum and they can't identify it either. Lemo has been suggested, but the best advice is to ask Diamond and see if anybody there remembers it.

It is a really weird connector in the way the two pins are not on the centreline.

If you do a google/images on

lemo 2-pin connector

you see a lot of similar stuff but as I say the off-centreline 2-pin config is really rare.
