Default Help to ID power supply jack - Swiss?

I am trying to figure out what kind of connector this is. (See attached pic)

It's about 6mm I.D. with two pins, which are offset from center.

It's supposed to carry +/- 24V DC. I don't have the original power supply. So I either need to find the matching male plug (and a 24V DC power supply attached to it ), or replace the jack with something more common so I can run a more common 24V power supply, unregulated wall wort is OK.

Thanks in advance for any help.

(I've been looking around online for a few days now and found nothing - just some good reference pages that refer to many types of connectors but not this one, e.g. Common plugs and connectors - Helpful)

It is called an aviation connector. Many sizes and pin configurations are available.

Thanks - looks like all the 2-pin aviation jacks put the pins right down the middle.

However, it looks like a 3-pin male plug may potentially place two pins at an offset - just not sure if it's the correct offset. Maybe I should buy one to see.

Hmm these aviation connectors actually look way too big. Will see if I can hunt for a smaller one.

This is showing an M16 size ... but I need the male connector to fit into a 6mm opening. And my plug is not threaded.

What I mean is (and I can't edit my post), the plug IS threaded - just not to the end. The thread size TBD. It is not threaded all the way to the end, is what I meant.

I took a straight-on cell picture and noted the 6mm I.D. here. In so doing I discovered an icon of some kind in the middle of the connector - a clue?

You can also see the offset of the pins from this pic.

There is indeed a smaller version... like those fitted on mic bodypacks. I use one for powering a Behringer mixer.

Thanks, looks like the M6 size is about right although if I was smart I'd figure out what thread this is.

Was looking at this for example: WEIPU SF6 6mm 4Pin Waterproof IP67 Cable Connector,Power Aviation Connector 676422916160 | eBay

It is almost right but a little too big ... the O.D. of my connector is ~6.8mm.

(I realize I won't be able to edit this in the future so apologies in advance when that link dies - edit, while I still can edit this, I'll upload the screen shots as attachments.)

Just to confirm - the two pins are offset from center on yours?

It sure would be easier if an actual store carried these things so I could go look ... I wonder if Fry's does.

Does that look like the Binder Connector Logo ?
Could be a 711 or 712 M9 series connector ?

And my MS paint comparisons attached ... I think we have a winner (assuming the diameter matches ... I think it does so far...)

Have confirmed that my thread O.D. is about 8.9Xmm which is correct for M9 thread. This is the thread that this connector has.
