Whats the name of connector number 2 in the picture?

 

I have one of these panel PC's and want to put a SSD in it, but apparently the manufacturer does not sell this cable for retrofitting nor as a spare part frown

Well the whole thing is a 'serial ATA' lead with combined power and data. The power connector is often called a 'molex' but as molex make hundreds of different types that doesn't really help.

What is the pitch of the four contacts? 

If 0.156" or 3.96mm, then maybe this will work, Digikey A107462-ND

That looks like one of the SPOX series of Molex connectors.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but it could be a JST-XH - the notches in the socket to the left of it look to be in the right locations for the JST-XH. If you could unplug the connector and take a close up picture, it might give us a bit more info to go on. Also, it'd be nice if you could accurately measure the pin pitch.

Thanks, turns out mnehpets was right!

 

I found the datasheet of the JST-XH and the measurements and design all add up! It's 2,5mm pitch and all other measurements are spot on.

Unfortunately it looks like it's a special made adapter, so I will probably have to buy something like this, cut of the molex and put on a female JST-XH connector.

#2 looks like JST-XH, indeed. If you don't have a crimping tool at hand, Farnell/element14 have precrimped wires (e.g. 2065433) with crimped terminals each end. You just buy two, cut them in half, and splice into your SATA loom.

Not a bad idea, I think we might have one around somewhere, but if not it's definitely an option! laugh

Or buy the mating molex and make an adapter with your JST-XH connector!
