    Connecting Ilford darkroom safelights to Ilford Multirgrade 500 power suply (500s)

    I would like to connect my Ilford darkroom safelights - SL1 or DL10 (have both) to Ilford Multirgrade 500 power suply (500s). My safelights have a standard 220V plug (+/-) but the power suply have a different plug, pictured below. I googled for it but found nothing. Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    this looks like British standard power plug. For laptops you have often those adapters for different countries.

    Regards,

    Thank you Darko, in the beggining I was thinking the same but I checked my iron, it's from the UK, it's quite similar but a little different:

    I think you will find that that connector (a Bulgin PX0770) is obsolete and unobtainable. Not all is lost however.

    If you look at a standard I.E.C. power lead as used on computers, I think you'll find the pin spacing is the same - If it is, cut the shroud away from the pins on a male connector. Alternatively, if you are mechanically/electrically inclined, replace the socket with a modern I.E.C. fitting.

    Try contacting Second Hand Darkroom in the UK.

    www.secondhanddarkroom.co.uk | +44 (0)1993 878323

    A friend of mine in the UK got a connector for his safelight from them a few months ago. I think he had to cut one end a bit to reveal the pins but, as far as I am aware, it works.

    Bests,
