FDC connector

Post by Steve M » Mon Aug 14, 2017 12:08 pm

IS there another name for floppy power connectors - apart from 4-pin FDC connectors?

I'm trying to sources some cables that are FDC to FDC rather than molex to FDC or some longer FDC cables that I might be able to join together.

As you said the name is exactly male/female 4-pin Molex power connector.
Normally pins and housing are sold separately, but there are lot of options for ready made cables - all possible m/f to m/f combinations plus Y-splitters, extenders and etc.
Is this what you need -> 4 Pin Molex Male to a 4 Pin Molex Male Power Cable

No, it's not molex I want. Molex fits the old 3" drive or maybe ide hard drive - but I want the 3.5" floppy connector. It's smaller than molex.
