I am looking for small quantities of British Telecom Analog (BTA) left and right hand sockets (receptacle) to connect to some sensors with the corresponding plugs:


The first two pin-out diagrams depict how the two plugs of opposite handedness are used. I looked in a lot of places including ebay and ebay.uk and farnell. I am just not finding them. I figured I must have used the wrong name when searching. If I try to search American phone jacks in digikey I probably won't go very far compared with keyword RJ11.

So for someone in UK, what do you call these plugs and connectors?
Where do you buy these connectors?
Where to buy them in US?

Big thanks!


Is this the one:

If you are desperate to have them in small quantities, just order the samples. Probably maximum 10 pieces. Just don't abuse the sample service, they'll get pissed soon after that.  :D

And another same alternative:


Do you need the raw connectors?  If not, perhaps a UK to US phone adapter would work:

Thanks guys! FYI, I am looking for jacks not plugs.
