    The Cinch Jones plugs are still the Ntrak standard but because of several factors, not the least of which is cost, the Powerpole connectors are a recommended alternative. Be forewarned, however, that if you use the Powerpole connectors it is your responsibility to also supply a Powerpole to Cinch Jones adaptor for each side of your module. Seems like a duplication for only one module and it is but the savings come in when two or more modules are built and used together. Eventually the Powerpoles will become the defacto standard and the Cinch Jones will be obsolete. Another plus for using the powerpoles is that they are used by other groups and thus have a bigger market so one could expect they will be in good supply whereas Ntrak maybe one of the last groups to use the CJ plugs and thus causing problems in obtaining them as you have experienced.
