Trigger (Cinch-Jones) cables?

Post by Rezin » Mon Apr 25, 2016 3:53 pm

Hello all,

I'm coming down the home stretch for this restoration process- does anyone know where I could get some Moog trigger (Cinch-Jones) cables? I've found some at the link below, but they're expensive, and longer than I need them to be...

Any thoughts? Would I just do better to make them myself?

Best,

Moog calls these S-trigger cables.
Why not contact Moog Modular Sales direct? [email protected]

For DIY, I would ask either .com or Moog to ID the part number for the connectors.

Good luck!

Unless you are an absolute purist, replace the CJ connectors with something better (pretty much anything would be better). Mini-DIN connectors would be better from a functional point of view.

Newark had the connectors in stock in March when I bought a bunch.

Looks like the female may not be available.

The S-trigger plugs are/were a Cinch-Jones connector (now owned by TRW?), part number P-302 (plug, 300-series, 2-conductor). The jack part number is S-302 ("S" for socket). Both part numbers have suffixes that qualify the part further, so be careful when getting your own connectors. (That was my experience from making cables for my MiniMoog a long, long, time ago.)

Possible suppliers:
Newark http://www.newark.com (already mentioned)
Mouser http://www.mouser.com
DigiKey http://www.digikey.com
All Electronics http://www.allelectronics.com
BG Micro http://www.bgmicro.com
Jameco http://www.jameco.com
Electronic Surplus http://www.electronicsurplus.com
Arcade Electronics http://www.arcade-electronics.com

Some of these say they have the plug in-stock, but not the jack. A few list the parts, but have none in stock. Arcade Electronics shows both the plug and jack, but I couldn't tell whether they actually _had_ any. Maybe you will have more patience and dig deeper than I did.

Note that the price for an individual plug/jack is roughly $3 to $6, so even making your own isn't going to be "cheap".

Good luck, and have fun!
