Motor connector

I am looking for a cable to connect to a 24V DC motor with a rotary encoder. The cable needs 7 female pins, is rectangular and appears to have a slip lock on the top. Attached some pictures.

Insufficient data.
No vendor link for the motor.
No explanation of the rotary encoder

What is the pin spacing? If 0.1",perhaps you could cut down a female 0.1" header to fit. It will not lock in, but a dab of hot glue might secure it.

Understand and appreciate all the comments about "insufficient data" and you are all correct. However, I guess what I was really asking was not to actually find the cable that came with the motor, but to find a connector that will work. I can make the cable and in fact prefer to do that. What I don't know (and I should have stated this in my original post) is what should I be searching for. I have no idea what to "google" to find this connector or one like it. I have written the program (sketch) I need to run the motor and control the speed using an OLED for rpm readout. I have designed and had produced the printed circuit board for an Arduino Mini and now I am in the process of cleaning up the physical appearance. I have already received a great deal of assistance from this forum and could not have gotten this far without that help.
So I guess what I am really asking, and probably should have stated that in my original post is what should I be searching for? What would you call that type of connector?
Many thanks and sorry for the lack of information in the first post.

What is the pin spacing?

What is the pin spacing?

Pin spacing is 2.5mm or .10 inches. So I believe pretty much standard spacing.

Equally important. What equipment did the motor come from and what was it's purpose?

Paul,
Not trying to be smart or anything just curious, why would the motors purpose be important in determining the connector? But it came from an HP printer. In fact when I googled the motor number Buehler #1.61.106.003.51 it took me to several sites selling a replacement for that printer. As for purpose, I have no idea. I got the motor from a friend of mine who runs a recycling shop and he lets me rummage through his motor pile on occasion. Dumpster Diving as it were, so what I find could come from anyplace, but most of the time I can find the specs like with stepper motors, and servos. But these Buehler motors are hard to track down.

Looks similar to a Mate-N-Lock connector.
I don't really see any need for finding the correct connector. All you need to do is find some circular socket pins
that fit snuggly on the male connector pins and then just hot glue the wires in after plugging the socket pins onto
the connector. I've done this a dozen times when the correct connector wasn't available. Some people prefer
clear silicone to hot glue but either will work. Find some socket pins that work.
That being said, if you have no idea what the motor specs are or what the motor was used for , why in the world
are trying to find out how to connect it ? For what ? (just to say you did ? I don't get it. seems like a waste of time)
If you need a motor , just google what you need and order it. This is the 21st century in the middle of a pandemic.
You can probably get everything cheap.
Google search:"24Vdc motor" (14,500,000 hits)

Looks like a Mate-N-Lock
If it's 6 pins , the mate would be:
CONN RECEPT 3MM 6POS MATE-N-LOCK
If it's not 6 position just change the number in front of "POS" and search on dig-i-key:
"CONN RECEPT 3MM ?POS MATE-N-LOK"

Actually I never said I don't know the pin-outs. How would I have written the Arduino script if I didn't know the pin-outs. I do know what they are and I have already tested to make sure it will do what I want it to do. I got these for free and spent a day tracking the pin-outs to the point that I now have them in my files. If I ever find another encoder without pin-outs I now have the method to map them. If you want to see the process check this thread. https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=676650.msg4553756#msg4553756. It outlines the complete process we went through last April. The resulting schematic is included here.

And I sorta take offense at your somewhat cavalier attitude about why someone is trying to do something. I would never judge or pass any judgment on anyone trying to do something even if completely ridiculous. You never really know who you might insult and you never know why they are doing something and it kinda makes you look like a jerk when you do that kind of thing. Just saying!!

This is the Arduino forum...

Maybe this housing

with female-male or female-female terminated wires

CrossRoads:
Maybe this housing
Pololu - 0.1" (2.54mm) Crimp Connector Housing: 1x7-Pin 10-Pack
with female-male or female-female terminated wires
Pololu - Wires with Pre-Crimped Terminals 50-Piece 10-Color Assortment F-F 6"

Thanks. I think the first one (1906) will work. I also found something that might work on Degikey.

Thank you for sharing.
Now your post can help someone besides yourself.
I totally understand about salvaging junk and putting it to good use. I understand that the forum is the go to place for technical answers but often people post without realizing that they could be helping others by providing some background about their post. Another poster tried to ask you about the purpose of the motor which you pointed out was
irrelevant, but offered no reason for your interest in the motor. For what it's worth, it might have been more interesting if you had started your post by saying " I salvaged an old printer motor and would like to use it for a project but need more info about the connector..."
I would not have questioned why you were asking had I known your intention, which brings us to the question "why SHOULD you volunteer any information beyond your interest in the connector? I would answer that by asking the question "Would this post have done anyone else any good had you not spilled the beans while admonishing me for questioning your interest in the motor ?" Now that you have put it all out there others who might want to follow in your footsteps with that motor have the information to do so. I don't take offense that you called me a jerk for wondering what your interest in the motor was. Actually, if you think about it, there is no reason why that should have upset you. (just sayin' !) You could simply have replied "funny you should ask...I am recommissioning the motor for a project" . Just FYI, you can expect people to ask you why you are doing what you are doing. While that may make no sense to you when all you care about is finding a connector, but it adds 'depth' and 'purpose' to the
post and it makes for a better read for other hobbyists like yourself who might be looking for ideas and have an old HP printer laying around. , instead of just being a shallow post about someone in search of an obscure connector. Now it's complete. That's on you not me . I'm just another jerk annoying you into telling us the whole story. Thank you for sharing...
And just for the record , despite not knowing why you were asking I STILL volunteered a guess as to what connector it was...
And just FYI, we DO get people posting about motors they have no use for just to see if they can get them working , more out of curiosity and boredom than purpose, and maybe to learn about motors. There's nothing wrong with curiosity for
curiosity's sake when it comes to electronics. We
have good reason to ask why you are doing what you are doing and you have no reason to take offense to it.
BTW, why is the GND missing on the detector ?

Thank you for that explanation. My objection was not so much to the question as it was to the manor in which it was posed. Let me quote:
"That being said, if you have no idea what the motor specs are or what the motor was used for , why in the world
are trying to find out how to connect it ? For what ? (just to say you did ? I don't get it. seems like a waste of time)
If you need a motor , just google what you need and order it."

Your comment as stated was "off putting" and to me indicated you thought I was wasting your time and mine. You assumed that I had no information on the motor and if you had read my second post you would have seen that to be a false assumption. The reason I didn't post additional information was that for the purposes of this thread the specifics of my project really had no bearing on the question I was asking. The question I asked myself after I read your post was, "what difference does it make to the connector what motor it goes to or what the project is". This particular post only deals with one aspect of this project. If you had asked why I was using a motor that I had no specs for, I would have given you the whole rundown and pointed you the the thread that explained the process we went through to find the information I needed on the motor.
My whole point to this conversation is that, especially in today's environment of negativity on social media and elsewhere, we have to be very cautious of the language we use. People are too quick to condemn others on social media and in the press, and that is not an environment where learning can flourish. I just wanted to let you know that your comments as stated were somewhat offensive to me.
Again, thank you for the enlightenment on your perspective, hope you appreciate mine.

Understood, but putting aside my harsh manor of questioning for a moment, I would point out that while it is clear that your only concern was identifying your connector, you should keep in mind that the whole point of having an
open source forum is so hobbyists around the world can browse the posts to learn from each other's post. You're
OP was not very useful to others until you filled in the blanks. Having done that, you converted a relatively useless
post into a very informative one , and in so doing made a contribution to the global awareness as it relates to the
Buehler #1.61.106.003.51 found in HP printers, which , one might assume , are plentiful. I might point out that my
questioning your motives is a reflection of my ignorance, not of yours, so I really don't know why your reacted
as you did. You could have just said "Actually , I do have an application, and I already mentioned that I have code."
I am trying to point out that "people don't make you mad. You make yourself mad." It is not a reflection on you
when others question your motives. it is a reflection of their ignorance of your motives and all you have to do is
educate or enlighten them. If I had to write a conclusion, I would say that you seem not to have embraced that
the sharing purpose of the forum and still see it as a means to an end, rather than a place to contribute information that others can use to enrich their hobbyist lives. Who knows how many people are disassembling old scrap HP
Printers as we speak looking for your motor so they can use your schematic. I guess under the circumstances it
would probably be too much to ask for you to share your code.
Thank you for sharing...
Welcome to the forum, where your project is everyone's project, and what goes around, comes around...
("come for the connector, stay for the schematic...")
