Wow! And I'm sure that would never be allowed in the USA.

I'm pretty sure I remember these on the Yamaha CP-70 and CP-80 pianos, although they were probably the Cannon/JAE version.  Surely somebody else here had to deal with those things 30+ years ago, and can confirm or deny my recollection?

My thought as well but after searching online they appear to use a 2 pin XLR with standard pins.

Rather than the AC power connector,

As well as powering lots of portable video gear, usually the 4pin variety.

Now that you mention yes,,, the mobility scooter I repaired multiple times had the popular XLR for that one connection... That XLR being indexed was useful to maintain DC polarity. All the rest of the internal wiring used conventional amp/molex type crimp and poke connectors.

For TMI One of the sundry repairs I made was repairing the battery charger when it stopped charging. I didn't have a schematic. Long story short I found a passive 1/4W resistor that went rogue*** (way high resistance). I replaced it with one I had in my parts bin that was close enough to work...

*** In decades of repairing gear I never saw a resistor fail that way without being stressed somehow. This one was just too cheap to keep working. Apparently it worked when new.

I would not trus a metal housing plug of whatever kind for any power current that would harm a human being.

There are XLR connectors for power.

The BBC required these to be used on anything that was built for them.
