German term or phrase: Griffkappe
Another item from my assembly parts list:
D-Gerätestecker 25pol. Stift
Griffkappe 25 pol.
Schraubsatz
All of the above are manufactured by Spoerle.

I found Gerätestecker on one web site listed simply as a plug connector, so I'm thinking something like 25-pin plug-type connector would be right for the first item. But I can't find Griffkappe anywhere - at least not a picture of it. Entering the manufacturer + part number on one web site resulted in a description of this part in German, but called it a "Gehäuse/plastik...". Anyone have any ideas? TIA, Beth

English translation:equipment connector, grip cover
Explanation:
For Gerätestecker, Corenesoen's Tech WB gives 'apparatus inlet-plug', 'connector' and 'device plug'. From ref 1, it appears that a 'Gerätestecker' is a connector that can be mounted on a piece of equipment or a wall, as opposed to a cable-mounted connector.

I agree with 'grip cover'.

Explanation:
Hello Beth,

I am not really certain and I too did not find much from an Internet search. I did find this one site (http://www.he-elektrotechnik.de/text-04.htm) with a picture of various plug connectors. I am assuming that Griffkappe refers to a plug connector which is not only inserted but also snaps in place or thus locks or is secured in place (greifen). I have a gigantic catalog from one US supplier (Granger) containing various connectors. There they are simply called plastic connectors, for use with 8-3 and 6-3 cables, push-in design, captive locking wedge secures cable, provides excellent insulation, stain relief and high pull-out value.

Good luck!

grip cover or grip cap


Explanation:
At the Spoerle site:

http://www.spoerle.de/

There is one 25-pin connector (part number 39513253) that is be made by the Japanese MOLEX company for Spoerle. A drawing is shown at this site with a snap-on cover with a ridge on each side that would aid in gripping. The "Griffkappe" is just called a "cover" on the drawing itself. It would look like an integral part of the housing. I would avoid the word "plug" because that is for a connector that goes into a hole somewhere and this connector may connect on the surface. I would call that "Griffkappe" component on that connecter a "grip cover".

or

There are other 25-pin connectors at the Spoerle site from other manufacturers. Without the manufacturer and part number, we cannot help you much further. The design could be quite different from the Molex device. It might resemble a "grip cap" on some other device.
