Originally a European Audio Connector design, these DIN Connectors have found acceptance in computer and other electronic connector applications. A combination of reliability and economy has prompted their widespread adoption.
Designed to meet exacting manufacturing requirements and long-term physical and electrical reliability particularly when subject to frequent connect-disconnect and/or movement. Heavier gauge metal & thicker plating on terminals and structure. Better solderability. Terminal numbers molded into insulator.
Shield clamp integral in structure. Superior finish on pins provide thousands of additional reliable connections. Plastic handle designed to cover the retention mechanism, leaving no exposed metal. Molded-in key facilitates assembly alignment.
