    Hi,

    Could someone advise me what would be the best small small push together connector for a 240 volt 500ma pc fan?

    It is to be used to cool an electronics enclosure but I would like to be able to pull the connector apart as the fan is in the lid of the enclosure.

    Thanks,

    Martin

    120W PC fan?

    Are you sure?

    Hi,

    Thanks for the replies.:cool:)

    My mistake, it is a 240v 0.14amp fan.

    As to the size, I was just looking for a connector that was small and discrete such as the size of a banana plug or similar.

    Only so it looked neat in the enclosure.

    A 33 W fan in a pc? Did it come with ear plugs?

    whatever it is, for safety you need to use a mains rated connector.

    IEC connectors would be my recommendation but they're larger than your target.
