    Have any of you ever seen this style c connection before, or know it's name? I ordered 4 electronic actuators from China and they came with a weird connector and I'm having a hard time identifying or locating them. Thanks.

    Also, the actuators were for use in a solar array, and the manufacturer was aware of that. I've spoken with a few solar installers/companies in the US and none of them have ever seen that connection before.

    Hard to tell from such tiny pics, but it looks like a standard barrel connector. They come in various sizes, so you need to know the diameters of the barrel and the internal pin.

    See if those don't come through a little larger and clearer. It's not a barrel connector, it has a flat bar and a round "pin".

    Both the bar and the pin have a small bump protruding a tiny bit from the side (im assuming to help the plug stay in) that you can see in a few of the pics.

    Sir miwilson . . . . .


    With your final pictures,
    That . . .to my eye . . . . . looks akin to a male " You-are-a-peein' " DIN speaker connector.

    Initially . . . . . consult down a few paragraphs within this reference source . . . . .to Loudspeaker connector . . .

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DIN_connector

    Then refer to all of the picture source possibilities within this source, of that type of connector. . . . . .

    https://www.google.com/search?q=Eur...7#imgdii=xek1OdvBASArMM:&imgrc=Ri69Q4N2v-vG8M:

    One variant being, that your connectors pair seem to be centered within the connector, while the DIN plug has the wide blade centered in the connector.


    Thaaaaaaaaaaaaasit . . .

    Would you believe me . . . . . I've had bad luck with both my wives.
    The first one left me, and the second one didn't.

    up agree with Edd .... a pretty common speaker Din connector, sometimes also used as a DC power supply connector
    Some of my Christmas lights have that style
