DIN and Mini Din Connector

Antenk overmolded DIN and mini DIN cable assemblies
DIN and Mini DIN cable assemblies are designed to carry the maximum current possible with wire as large as 20 AWG to allow 2 A of current. All standard configurations of DIN connectors are available, from 3 to 13 pins in both standard and mini versions. The line also offers straight and right angle versions. Overmolding the cables offers extra stability, ease of use, and visual appeal. Custom versions are available.

DIN and Mini Din Connector Features
3-13 pin configurations
20 AWG wire for maximum current
Overmolded connectors for stability

DIN and Mini DIN Connector Applications

DIN Connectors

What are DIN Connectors?
DIN is an abbreviation for Deutsches Institut für Normung, or German Institute for Standardization, which is a German manufacturing industry standards group. DIN connectors are round, with pins arranged in a circular pattern. This type of connector was used widely for PC keyboards, MIDI instruments, and other specialized equipment. Another type of DIN connector is the mini-DIN. As the name suggests, mini-DIN connectors are smaller in size than a regular DIN. They are still round, but with the pins arranged in horizontal rows rather than in a circular pattern. Mini-DIN connectors are used for S-video connections, PS/2 mouse & keyboards, and some other applications. DIN and mini-DIN connectors are both held in place by the friction of the connector body and by pins.
A DIN connector is an electrical connector that was originally standardized in the early 1970s by the Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN), the German national standards organization. There are DIN standards for a large number of different connectors, therefore the term "DIN connector" alone does not unambiguously identify any particular type of connector unless the document number of the relevant DIN standard is added (e.g., "DIN 45322 connector").

Some DIN connector standards are:
DIN 41524, for circular connectors often used for audio signals or some digital signals like MIDI
Din 41612, rectangular connectors used to connect plug-in cards to a back plane or motherboard
DIN 41652 D-subminiature connectors used for computer data and video
DIN 41585 automotive coaxial connectors

Types of DIN Connectors

Both male and female DIN connectors are available. Male connectors plug into receptacles, jacks, and outlets and contain three to fourteen pins ranging in size from approximately 5/8" to just under 1" in diameter. Female connectors contain sockets for pins from other devices. The number of pins or sockets in a DIN connector corresponds to the number of wires in the coaxial cable. Often, DIN cables are referred to numerically so that, for example, a four-wire DIN cable is called a [DIN 4".

5-pin DIN Connectors have 5 pins that are arranged in a circular pattern and are commonly used for older computer keyboards.
S-Video connectors have 4 pins arranged in 2 rows and a keying block so that it cannot be inserted incorrectly.
PS/2 connectors have 6 pins and a keying block. This connector has become an industry standard for connecting mice and keyboards although was first used on PS2 consoles.
8-pin mini DIN Connectors have 3 pins at the top and bottom and 2 in the middle. They are commonly used on portable video devices and projectors.

Environmentally sealed connectors have been designed for cable to cable, cable to board and cable to device applications. They are primarily used in harsh environments.

DIN Connectors Mounting Methods
DIN connectors use either straight or right-angle connectors and a variety of mounting methods.
Flange mounted DIN connectors attach to panels by bolting the flange or riveting it in place through holes in the flange surface.
PC mounted and through-hole connectors are inserted into pre-drilled holes in printed circuit boards and then soldered into place.
With pin termination, components are mounted on boards without soldering.
Surface mount technology (SMT) solders components to the surface of small printed circuit boards that do not use pre-drilled holes. Typically, SMT is used in applications with small components that operate at high frequencies.

DIN Connectors Applications
DIN connectors are used widely in audio, microphone, video, telephone, data, and network applications. Micro and nano connectors exhibit contacts with pitches as small as 0.05" and 0.025", respectively. DIN connectors that are used with computers connect to microprocessors and plug into slots for random-access memory (RAM) cards such as SIMMs and DIMMs.
