So, I picked up an assortment of what appears to be odds and ends from some line of garden accessories. I was mostly interested in the solar panels(ghastly green plastic housings; but 12v panels and the price was right); also included were some 12v water pumps, presumably supposed to drive little fountains or the like.
All the panels have an attached power cable terminated in a 2 pin female connector, keyed, and threaded. The pumps have a matching male, shrouded, with an O-ring and a nut matching the threads on the female connector. The shroud on the male connector is 1/2inch across.
Ideally, I’d like to keep the existing connectors on the solar panels, it would save me a lot of tedious cutting and splicing and heatshrinking; but I cannot find anything about what they are. They look a lot like somebody’s cheap take on DIN or XLR; but definitely aren’t that(too small for full XLR, too big for mini-XLR; keying is different, 2 pin DIN wasn’t a thing and had a thinner metal shroud). 12v IEC 60906-3 seemed plausible; but it doesn’t look right.
Anyone know if this thing has a name or a source? Am I just looking at the misbegotten offspring of some obscure proprietary ecosystem that died and was sold off for scrap(that would explain the price…)
If these are a loss; anyone have a favorite for weather resistant low voltage applications?
