Air compressor plug is loose #975
The compressor for the air-assist on Sophia is plugged into a US-style socket (two flat pins anyway) on the left-hand side of the case, next to where the extraction hose is attached.
It's rather a loose fitting now, and can work its way out, thus turning off the air-assist. We should replace or secure it better so that doesn't happen.
I’ve been looking at some shuttered IEC sockets which may be a good replacement for the existing sockets.
Something like this - https://uk.farnell.com/bulgin/px0675-63/outlet-iec-flange-fixing/dp/313701
Would appear to be good possibilities.
I expect that a mounting plate would have to be made up to replace the existing connection and electrical safety would be paramount, as these connectors are accessible with the lid up on Sophia.
