    Hi, it’s my first post and please pardon me if it’s placed in the incorrect place.

    I am looking to get some matting connectors for the ones in the the attached picture and did a lot of searches but couldn’t find a match.
    The connector with male pins is about 0.55” O.D.

    The connectors came on some LED and driver that are made in China.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Thanks, yes it looks like a DIN connector, but unlike the DINs I worked with, which are keyed at the bottom or side, this is keyed at the top. I attached also more pictures.

    It is also waterproof.

    Looks like it may be from some 'marine' electronics? It may even be made-for-purpose if it's hi-end equipment and expensive accessories are the norm.

    Thanks everyone, it seems to be a bastardization (if that’s a word) of Amphenol LTW BD-08BFFA-7001 8 pin where they removed the center and lower center pins to make a 6 pin version. None of the standard 6 pin paterns I found are like the one I showed, so I will get the 8 pin version and do the same to make the matting sets.

    Thanks again!
