Hi all,

Yep, EDAC, best source I found for these when I needed some a while back was REDCO

They will also build custom cables at a reasonable price if needed.

It is a 516 series connector. Loosely referred to as an EDAC or ELCO. But we know that they are the names of manufacturers who make sqillions of different connectors.
yours looks like a 90 pin female. You can buy the mating male body, a backshell and locking screw plus all the pins. I'd recommend solder type. Then hook up your multicore with the other end terminated in ...... what ?

Thanks Gents,

As you may have guessed, this connector is at the rear of a (reasonably priced) TT patchbay - just calculating if it's better to spend a bit more and go with one that has DB25s on the rear..... (I'm currently using soft routing within my console and direct to each outboard device via analog cards with DB25 I/O, but as the outboard grows I'm needing more patching capability).
