Have a look here in section 8.2.4.:
Does anyone have any details on the accessory connector?
I would like to get the correct size and offer it as an option on my touch probe for the Tormach users. Is it available at Radio Shack?
Thanks for the tip, I check that portion of the manual out and it is helpful but doesn't quite give me enough information. There are hundreds of different 5 pin din connectors out there, audio style, computer style, power and others, unless you have a good picture or dimensions it can be difficult to determine the exact one. The manual doesn't give the exact DIN spec.
From what I can see of the picture it looks like either a radio style, or audio style. If any Tormach owners could take a picture for me with measurements it sure would help.
I did get enough information from the manual to breadboard the accessory interface circuit and test my probe design with it and it works fine.
Go to Radio Shack and ask for a MIDI connector/cable. I think the cable
was around $6
