You can still buy the binder connectors - it's a 5 pin 711 or 712 (if you want shielding - not what Schoeps used)


The connectors are made by Binder and sold via the binder USA website.

pin assignments out of memory:
1 = gnd - shielding
2 = L - white wire
3 = R - yellow wire
4 = 6.2v FET - brown wire
5 = 60v Polarization - green wire


These colors align with Schoeps 4 conductor cabling

oddly enough the ipa uses all 5 pins plus a chassis ground

redundant ground?

Probably to ground the barrel on the binder to help with shielding
