Identifying Connectors

  1. I am currently trying to identify several electronic connectors so I can
    purchase the appropriate mates. Several of these connectors have proven to
    be very difficult to identify. Does anyone have any suggestions for how I
    might approach this?

    Large electronics catalogs.
    Connector makers websites.
    Look for a logo on the connector, and see if you can track it down.
    A description here might be an alternative.
     
  3. You can post pictures of the parts on
    by attaching it as a GIF, JPEG,
    or other common image file. That way, someone can see them, and
    hopefully tell you who makes them.

  4. I have gone through several large electronics catalogs - Allied, Newark,
    Digi-key and searched the web sites of Amp/Tyco, 3M, and Foxconn. There are
    no logos on the connectors as far as I can tell. I examined them very
    carefully.

    All of these connectors are attached to laptop hard drives (generally 5400
    RPM) and provide the interconnect from the hard drives to the laptop
    computers. I believe they are IDE interfaces with power included in the
    same connector, but I could be wrong here.

    I did identify the mate of one connector. It is a "Note Module" with 2.00
    mm pitch made by Foxconn. The part number is HH99227-T9. It is part of
    their "Device Interface" product family.

    I can provide photos to anyone interested. Simply contact me if you wish to
    receive some photos.

  5. Thanks for the suggestion! I was hoping to find such a web site.

    I will do so later today.

  6. I just posted descriptions and a few scans (of small file size) to
    alt.binaries.schematics.electronic of two mating connectors. I am hoping
    someone will recognize these.
