Hi Team

 

Click to see full size

 

Just curious as to whether anyone recognises the bottom power connector in this image.  I initially thought it was for an ONT, but the top connector in the photo is from my ONT which says on the front it is a Model Type 200.  From the side the connectors look the same, but the 'pin' layout is obviously different.  Possibly an older model ONT that I've not come across?

 

Cheers

@wellygary I think you are referring to the connector my ONT uses.  The one with the 'slots' is the one I'm curious about.

looks like it would fit into something like this https://a.pololu-files.com/picture/0J682.1200.jpg?9c32726ecf9d3ba284f8829db3631a34

 

what's the rest of the connector look like?

Looks like the sort of plug i'd stick on something that i just want to be a dick about making you order a special power supply...

 

 

 

Only a few companies come to mind for that...

I would like to see more photos of the other connector and a photo of the power brick.

 

It's not an ONT power supply from any of the LFCs as Huawei (Enable and UFF) and Ericsson (Northpower) both use standard round 2.5mm connectors from memory.

 

The plug on the left as you have already said is the older style Chorus Molex Micro-fix dual row connectors. https://www.molex.com/molex/products/datasheet.jsp?part=active/0430250800_CRIMP_HOUSINGS.xml

You put them side by side in the image then referred to the bottom connector.

For some reason the 'thumbnail' is rotated.  If you click on the image to make it larger, the orientation is correct.

Nope, click on the image and they are still left and right like the thumbnail shows.

Weird...  not for me using Chrome on Windows.

That odd connector? It turns out this is what you see when the previous tenant of a building decides to unplug the ONT, rips the connector out by force, and takes the 'socket' out in the process.

Time to get the friendly folk at @Chorusnz involved via the ISP...

It looks like you might be able to just slide it back in?

One of my team did try, with the 'plug' going into the 'socket', and there was no life in the ONT.  At that stage we did not know exactly what the fault was, though.  Hopefully we can get the ONT replaced PDQ.

Looks like when your coworker attempted to plug it back in he has bent the pins that the molex connector actually uses to supply power to the ONT

Good spotting.  I guess we'll never know if it was us trying to put Humpty back together or whether it was the previous tenant.

 

The good folks at @Chorusnz are coming out on Thursday afternoon to sort this on their ticket SD4318241, but hopefully if they have a cancellation they can bring the job forward.  Hint hint.  Surely nobody else wants their help a week before Christmas!?!?
