Hi,

Could someone advise me what would be the best small small push together connector for a 240 volt 500ma pc fan?

It is to be used to cool an electronics enclosure but I would like to be able to pull the connector apart as the fan is in the lid of the enclosure.

Thanks,

Martin

Hi,

Thanks for the replies.:cool:)

My mistake, it is a 240v 0.14amp fan.

As to the size, I was just looking for a connector that was small and discrete such as the size of a banana plug or similar.

Only so it looked neat in the enclosure.

whatever it is, for safety you need to use a mains rated connector.

IEC connectors would be my recommendation but they're larger than your target.
