I was able to pick up a never used Eagle 3 computer for a great deal but it did not come with any of the 12vdc connection cables.  Does anyone know what the circular 12vdc plugs are called?  I wanted to make up my own cables.  The cables that they are cost $$$$.  The connectors sort of look like this.

Thanks in advance for looking at this post

they're called power connectors. I have a ton of adapters to go from 110v to all kinds of voltages. I'd ship you one but I don't know which size you need either. A Google search did not help. Maybe this place can help

I should have clarified what I'm looking for.  The connectors are screw in 4 pin connectors (check the picture I just added to the original post)   But you are correct there are a million sizes to choose from.

Thank you for the link to the thread! I searched for Primalucelab but I guess I did not search for Eagle...

Welcome! I wasn’t sure if the Mouser parts will work. If you do go that route, do please update this thread.

Will do. I ordered the connectors but one is on back order until 11/11.

Hello

 

This is an update on finding the correct plugs for the Eagle Computer.

 

I ordered the following from Mouser Electronics

 

Mouser #  571-T4110001031-000  From TE Connectivity  Their part # T4110001031-000  THIS IS THE FEMALE PUG

Mouser #  571-T4111002031-000  From TE Connectivity  Their part # T4111002031-000  THIS IS THE MALE PLUG

 

The plugs fit snugly and if you don't align them properly you might think that they are the wrong size but they do work. The price is about $5.00 each.  

 

Thank you to all of you who helped me!  

 

Walter

The Mouser/TE plugs connect well and they are better made than the original plugs.

However they are bulkier than the original Eagle plugs, they DO NOT fits well one aside the other.
