Here's something out of a german forum. It's about a K10D but I think it's the same power grip:

Here's a translation for the pinout:
Pin 5+6: + Voltage From D-BG2
Pin 16+17: - Voltage From D-BG2
Pin 4+9+11: ON-switch D-BG2
Pin 1: AE-L D-BG2
Pin 2/7: back wheel D-BG2
Pin 3: +/- D-BG2
Pin 8: trigger D-BG2, full pressed
Pin 10: Green-button D-BG2
Pin 14: trigger D-BG2, half-way pressed
Pin 12/13: front wheel D-BG2
Pin 15: preview button D-BG2

thank you, that is just what I was looking for.

I'm trying to make a soket for a photo sniper.
Do you know where I have to connect each pin to activate, I mean, to +, - or another one ?

great forum, I will be back
