I have an MPAT60 with exactly the same Hirschmann connector. Hirschmann have no recollection of this part and were quite surprised to see the photographs I sent. Unless a second hand one turns up it looks like its a DIY job.

Attached is a copy of the MPAT40-60 user instructions. There is a line drawing and a little more info on the plug in the flash section.

Thank for the info and user guide
was thinking swap out for a 4mm shrouded socket but these only seem to be up-to 1KV

on my usual car boot hunt i found a guy that had cleared an electronics company so had a carrier bag of diodes, fets, transistor's, 1/w resistors ,caps and test leads also this Clair flash probe ; which had already had its lead cut down and 4mm socket fitted so made an extension lead. found a 4mm socket that once removed from its sleeving would fit into the socket on my tester

so made this up the test lead is rated at 3KV if untouched so may need to make up another with a bit more chunky spec silicone wire but it works for now
