  • part number for Dinse Connector

    When I got my Dynasty 200 contractor kit, it came with the Dinse connection kit #221322, with two male connectors. No instructions were included with these. I was hoping to use them to make extension cables.

    I could not find any info on these, and what cable sizes these are rated for. I looked up female connectors and there are three types you can buy. Anyone kno what I need?

    I got the same connectors with mine and have not used them. However, they are Lenco connectors with a .508 dia pin. Here is a link to a page from the Lenco catalog that shows the male ends

    Not a complete answer but hope it helps. I measured the hole for the cable as .5 " so I'm sure it's not the 4/0 version. Must be one of the other 2.

      They were in the accessory section of the Miller catalogs. Weldcraft also lists them.

        That kit contains two of the LDP-50M connectors in it. They are rated to hold 4ga to 1/0 sized weld cables.

        I usually recommend the kit # 042419 for people that want to make a male/female connection in weld cablse. The kit has one male and one female connector in the kit and fits from No. 2 up to 1/0 weld cables.

          I have a 2/0 wires that came with the welder so I was hoping to use those connectors with that. Those connectors have two markings on the handles that say 3/0 and 4/0 that I thought were meant to indicate where you would cut back the handle to allow for a bigger cable diameter. So I assumed that the connector could be used with that size cable.

            Thanks Aeronca41. Super helpful to see all different connectors. So, it seems to me that the LDP-50/70M have the same inside components, but have a different jacket? All three have the .508 connector, single oval point screws.

              So I just got home. I looked at my connector. My 2/0 wire with shielding fits perfectly in housing entry point. The wire itself fits inside the copper block and is even a little loose. As I had mentioned, the housing has marks for cutting off for larger wire, though I don't know if it would fit in copper block.

                I saw the marks on the rubber cover for 3/0 & 4/0 also-my guess is the same cover is used for the -70 & -95 and the only difference is the size of the hole in the inside brass part-if you buy the -70, they assume you just ignore the marks in the insulator. I'm sure you will really love the Dynasty. Due to family health issues I haven't gotten to use mine nearly as much as I want to but it is just amazing, both capabilities I could never have imagined, and portability to do stick anywhere there's an outlet or generator if you don't need, or want to carry, a bottle.

                  I have had the Dynasty for 10 years now. Absolutely love it. Tig is amazing and it works great for stick. I have never had the time to dive into what it can do with TIG but look forward to it.

                  I am actually looking to use these connectors for my shopmaster 300 that i just picked up. I was looking to use these connectors so I can interchange some of the parts, though of course the shopmaster is much more powerful.

                    So I finally called Miller. They claim that what is included with contractor kit, the 221322 is for up to 2/0 wire. But they seem confused as well since they told me the individual part number is 129527 which is for 1/0 max.

                    The male connector for 1/0 to 3/0 is 134460 and Female 136600 (BRWelding calls this a 70 Series Dinse connector)

                    The male connector for #2 to 1/0 is 129527 and Female 129526

                    I think my 221322 package actually has Lenco LDP-70M included or similar. As i mentioned above, my 2/0 wire is a little loose in copper connector, and jacket fits perfectly, without trimming in the shielding/handle. The Lenco Cable Connector PDF shows the LDP-70M is for 1/0 to 2/0.

                      So as Lenco makes the connectors, a good resource I found was the Lenco USA site, i thought I would share:

                      http://profaxlenco.com/new/PxLnCat2014.html

                      Pages 13-16 ish has a lot of the connectors. I am going to pickup some quick connect LDCT-50FA connectors to replace the lugs on there now as the wire is fraying at the lugs. They are relatively cheap and will allow flexibility to go with the Lenco/Miller Dinse connectors. The 45 degree should work well with Shopmaster.

                          So I finally got my parts. Here are a few pictures. I uploaded images as it is near impossible to get proper pictures on welding websites, and from vendor; go figure, you would think they want to sell their products... I had to special order the male/female Lenco LDC-70 kit. $82 with shipping. I ordered from http://www.cometsupply.com//

                            Here are the connectors installed. I got the 45 degree one so it would come out at an angle as the original cables did. You can also buy ones that go straight down.

                              Finished the connectors after i found the proper tool to tighten them down. It is nice to have the red female so that you can quickly locate the positive. I could have used red tape, but the red connectors where the same price as black ones... I did a little stick welding this weekend and worked great.
