We did a 500-unit custom G540 run for a client. We run a 10% overage for custom units to insure the contracted for amount passes test. This run all 550 passed test so we have 50 custom G540 REV4s left over.
The client needed hex DB9 connectors whose posts are 0.05" shorter than our round DB9 and DB25 posts. That is the only difference (see attached jpg). The screws in our standard DB9 mating shells are too short to mate with these sockets.
We will sell them at our 50 quantity price ($225) in singles or for the whole lot. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. They will not appear on our website for purchase.

Are the DB9 connectors still included? I can find new screws.
I want to do a cnc lathe conversion in the near future so I am considering buying one now. Hopefully I will get around to it before the warrenty expires!
i just bought one last week. i never get the sales.
do i e-mail or PM or go though the gecko web page?
We would like to order several.
My emailed request to be billed through paypal has gone unanswered.
Email sent Friday.
Maybe these are sold out ? Sales desk took Monday off ?
edit/ If it's a case of being a bit backlogged I hope it's first emails get first service ?
Anyone who says "It only goes together one way" has no imagination.
Paypal is one of the standard payment options on the Gecko website.
Sales were definitely at work on Monday as I got a reply to my questions.
Order placed today before the $A falls any further
I called them, confirmed availability. Then I was told to just order a G540 online and put a note on the order that said "Overstock special at $225.00".

My special price G540 arrived yesterday, but I didn't have time to try it out until this morning.
It's a winner! I hooked it up to an Oriental Motor PK268-02A motor, half-coil, 2A, 48VDC, and that combination is very, very nice.
I've tested it at various speeds from 100 RPM to 1,344 RPM. Smooth and quiet.
Now the problem is going to be finding a good application for the other PK268-02A motors that I have on the shelf.
