Hi all,

I still have a CSI Model A06290V adaptor - see attached. But it has lost one of the 2 screws.  Bit wobbly now.  I still use it.  2 Channel BNC volts adaptor.

Can anyone tell me the correct screw size / designation etc?

I don't want to butcher it with wrong size. that's just not right is it.  The adaptor deserves better.

Any info appreciated. rgds

This question was asked and answered either here or the old board.
Here a one of many links to "D-sub connector screws":
https://hkcn.rs-online.com/web/p/connector-screws-nuts/7412857/

Looks like screws are 4-40 (see below for screws for slide lock)
Probably find on any cheap/junk communications cable. I know a stock 25-pin comm cable fiis my CSI 2120 input.

thank you Walt, I will follow up. Thought that the 25 pin comms cable had those longfinger handles on the end.  I will check again. rgds

Not sure what you are referring to.

Your OP was not clear to me if you wanted the screws that go into the threaded posts on the analyzer or the screws that retain the locking clip onto the cable connector. Either way, there are a lot of compatible parts available without dealing with Emerson-CSI; not that there is anything wrong with that.

I suspect the reference is to the screws that are much like those on a standard DB25 connector (see photo below).  If that is the case in the "Imperial" system it should be a 4-40 UNC thread.  If it is metric, perhaps not likely for CSI, then it is likely an M3 thread..

Menial I know but...

I found the screw for my CSI adaptor.  In the washing machine. Must have fallen out whilst in pocket of work pants.  Avoids a lot of time wastage finding who sells a replacement. thanks for everyones help.  At least the adaptor didn't go through wash. I did that with an iPhone once and washing machine won.
