Icom M802 connectors

Does anybody know a cross reference to the two connectors that are on the control cable between the M802 and an AT140 tuner ?
I am assuming they are both Molex of some kind but there are literally thousands of connector styles that Molex makes. I am also looking for the cross references for the inserts/pins/sockets/contacts.

Here you have the 4 part numbers you want.

Mouser sells them cheap. You need four of the 02 metal pieces for each of the 03 plastic pieces.

Cheers

Thank you very much for the information!!!
This is the connector at the AT140, both the male and the female. I wonder if you happen to know the numbers for the M802 end of the control cable. I still need the female connector and pin# of that end of the cable. (not the connector that is built into the back of the M802).
Sorry that I was not more clear on exactly what I was asking for

Re: Icom M802 connectors

The connector at the radio end of the cable is also one of those.
If you arr looking for the connector that goes in the chassis of the radio, use this numbers to find the relevant page of the Mouser pdf catalog in their web site.

Re: Icom M802 connectors

Hmmmm ..... my radio, a very new version, has a different connector on the m802 side. The inserts are tiny tiny, about half the size of the inserts at the AT140 side of the cable. They appear to be 0.1" pitch (2.54 mm) but I have only come close to the right configuration with a 2.5 mm pitch connector from Molex. I was going to re-measure it but am not sure if I can tell the difference. It is also a 6 position connector with only four positions used.
Thanks for your input, at least half of the mystery is solved!

This is a hot tip; saving hours of headache -- thanks!!


Does anyone know whether shielded cable needs to be used for this? Or will 4-conductor phone wire do?

Re: Icom M802 connectors

When I looked into this the recipe from Icom said shielded.

Thanks. It seems logical enough, with 150 watts RF an inch away. Just shielded four-conductor cable is incredibly expensive! Makes the ready-made Icom cable seem not as ridiculous as it looks at first glance.

Re: Icom M802 connectors

jd-
Icom (Japan) and IcomAmerica both have great FAST tech support. I would hope IcomCanada does as well.
But generally one phone call or email to them can get that kind of information, along with how to order parts from them if there's no more convenient source. And a large number of ham radio outlets will specialize in connectors for all sorts of Icom gear, including the "not really a ham radio" models.(G)
For genuine Molex connectors, the US auto industry also refers to those as "Pack con" meaning "pack connectors" and you may find the common molex types at your local auto parts store. Just double check the spacing and the pin diameters are the same.

Please note that the 802 has two different connectors at each end of the cable. The mentioned part numbers apply to one end of the 802 cable but both ends of the 7600 series radios (according to the ICOM AT140 installation manual)
... and yes, definitively shielded cable and chokes on both ends have been suggested as well! I used some 6 conductor shielded cable I had available.

Re: Icom M802 connectors

I ended up getting some of the contacts from a local Icom dealer.

I don't understand -- so I need to double these quantities in order to make a complete cable? So four of the 03 pieces and sixteen of the 02 pieces? Each end of the cable has two connectors, so four in total?
