What type of connection is this?


Just bought an old display cabinet that has a couple of bulbs in it. They're connected to a wire that comes out the back and then connects to a switch (pictured).

After that, no more wires. Was just wondering if anyone knew the name of this connection and if its possible to get an adapter to convert it to a standard 3 pin plug, or will it need rewired?

Welcome to the forums from the UK.

You should put non US in your bio as this is primarily a North American based site.

That is some type of ballast made by a UK lighting company called Eterna.
It has a 230v 50hz input. I tried searching for what looks like XR179 printed on that unit but got no hits. You'll probably need to contact Eterna to get exact information.
