    Y-split for TIG finger and pedal

    I have both the pedal and a TIG button control on the torch for my HTP Invertig 221H, and use them both regularly. It is a bit of a pain to swap them out regularly, so I would like to have them both connected and I'd just pick up the control I need. So I was thinking of building a Y-splitter.

    Where can I source the 7-pin female and male connectors? What size should I look for. The ID of the screw-in connector looks like is ~1/2" but overall the OD is more like 1".

    Would this setup harm the machine, e.g. by altering the impedance, or cause any unexpected effect?

    Why Take the chance.I have an AHP Alpha 201 The pedal uses 5 or maybe six pins.I have to look.The button control uses 2.I have 2 complete Torches set up with the hoses and connectors. I just disconnect the Power Dinz,The gas feed Quick connect, and the 7 pin plug.I know it is a lot more expensive with the hose, But I would be a little leary messing with the electronics. This way the button stays on the one Torch witch is a CK20 The pedal I use the CK17.CK Worldwide has the connectors. If it is Possible to do, they will make it up for you.But I would check with HTP first.To nice of a unit to mess up.

    SSC controls might be able to build one for you. They have all of the remote side parts. Perhaps they have the machine side as well. They just became a member here so give them a shout.
