Hello,

I'm looking for the 34 pin "control cable" to connect the Microphot FXA to the PSM 4a power supply.
Any help greatly appreciated, also if maybe someone has a service manual or can help about pin assignment would be great!

Thanks a lot,
Michael

You may search eBay with keyword "Microphot", then look into the pictures. Sometimes the seller has this "control cable" connected to the microscope, but without the power supply. In that case, you may contact the seller and he might sell it to you. Actually I got mine in this way.

I got a PSM-4 from an international seller in eBay, but it turn out to be defective. Would you mind letting me know where I can find a PSM-4a?

I can't help with an assembled cable but here's a data sheet from HRS/Hirose for the connector series in case you get desperate enough to make your own: http://www.mouser.com/ds/2/185/1600_catalog-938908.pdf

If you're in the United States and would like to try out the microphot, we could lend each other the equipment, so we both could try out the microscope.

(Before you put them together, you will never know whether the power supply or the microscope would work or not.)

Ohh sorry - seems like I disabled reply notifications for this thread, so I was unaware of the replies and completely missed them

Thanks for your hints and the data sheet, I just ordered all the parts to build a cable myself from mouser. Let's hope I get the pins right or i might smoke the precious scope Smile.

Thanks again for the great help,
Michael
