    I'm a retro computer enthusiast who wanted these for connecting to a computer built when these were probably as common as USB connectors are today. Everybody has the 5-pin, 180 degree (MIDI) connector, but the 240 degree pinout is hard to find and/or expensive. I picked up 4 connectors at Showmecables for the price of 1 at the other shops I tried.

    PROS: all good
    CONS: no bad
    and I wanted to add ... When soldering pins, be quick, as the plastic base plate softens and melts pretty fast. I use a 3rd hand alligator clip, and just count on realigning at least a couple pins by reheating and tipping gently with solder iron tip. Would be ideal to have a thermoset insulator base in there instead.

    PROS: great unit price, reasonable shipping, fast shipping
    CONS: none
    Just what my load cell project needed. Not as industrial as the all-metal bayonet mount, but just as serviceable and priced right. Not very many sources have this standard available and with good shipping. Seem more popular in the UK. I was very impressed with the economy shipping, which made it from MO late Thurs night to MT Mon afternoon.

Q: What is the difference between a 5 pin din 180°, 240° and 360°?

A: There is a slight difference between the configuration of the pins. The 180° has a more circular layout. A 240° connector has more of a horseshoe layout. A 270° connector has a pin in the middle. See the image below.

Q: How are the pins labeled on a male DIN connector?

A: The pins are numbered 1-4-2-5-3 from right to left (with the pins upwards).

Q: What cables are used with DIN Connectors?

A: Din connectors are commonly used with multi-conductor cables with at least one conductor per pin on the connector.

Q: How do I attach a DIN connector to my cable?

A: In order to attach a DIN connector to a cable you must solder each pin to its respective conductor.

Q: How do I prevent melting the plastic in the connector during soldering?

A: When soldering a DIN connector avoid heating the untinned wire and connector point and applying the solder all at once. This will cause melting and frustration. Tinning the wire ends and allowing them to cool before you tin the connector will prevent melting and allow you to attatch the wire correctly.
