Aviation Connector Plug and socket is good way of doing it.
They look good too.

Just keep in mind you will need the female end on the control box, so you don't have the potential of having live exposed pins.

Unless you don't mind a few sparks :lol:

Hi spog,

These are easy to get and are rated to 10 amps DC
You can get 'em at electrical discounters in Port Lincoln or from J Car on line

If you have a catalogue it says on the top of the page about how people use them for power connections and how they are rated 10 amp

Cheers

I've used these terminals for many projects, including stc-1000 probes. Just tin the ends of the wires. Makes connection/disconnection really quick and easy. For the current draw of a brown pump I don't think you will have any issues.

Its been a while but last time I had to make a low voltage removable connection (pump, sensor and an actuator) I used a trailer/caravan plug and socket, worked a treat.
Lot bigger range of them than their used to be.

Spog if you want a waterproof option you could try a Deutsch DT series or a Delphi Weatherpack connector. No special tooling required apart from some pointy nose pliers and a soldering iron.
These are pretty standard automotive connectors available from places like Ashdown Ingrams. No affiliation.

You could use plugs they use with electric r/c cars/planes/helis such as deans plugs. They will be more than capable for what you are doing. Personally I'd just use something from jaycar since that would be cheaper. But www.hobbyking.com has a lot of cheap r/c grade stuff, some of which may suit your application

Does nobody splice cables and heatshrink/electric tape? Just wondering.
Me n a mate made some cabling at work recently and just used blue ring crimp connectors and heat shrink. Heat on the connector to make it shrink onto the crimped cable and be 'water proof' then heat shrink sleeve on top to finish it off.
