    Hi,

    A connector has broken on a camera board in our mirtec MV-3 AOI machine.

    I have attached pictures of the connector and i am looking for someone to identify the connector. I have also attached pictures of the cable that plugs into it.

    Any information will be very helpful, and shout if i haven't included something that someone would need to know.

    I don't recognize it, and some manufacturers contract for custom connectors for their equipment.
    Have you tried contacting the equipment manufacturer to see if you can get one from them, or at least a recommendation
    from them for a repair/parts vendor?

    i'm awaiting a reply from the manufacturer, in the mean time thought someone might be able to give me a quicker answer, thanks.

    I have never seen one like that before and has has been commented, there is a 99% probability that it was made specifically for that computer and company

    As a last resort in cases like this, if I can't find a repair part, I start looking for someone selling a salvage or scrap unit (ebay or anyplace else I can find), and strip that unit for parts.
    The manufacturers have an annoying tendency to make a particular model for a short while, and then replace it with
    a newer model that has different parts that are not compatible with previous models.
    Good luck with your search.
