Coding system for D-Sub interfaces

Coding system for D-Sub interfaces

The solution to avoid wrong connections – secure, reliable and flexible

Highly sensitive measurement, control and communication devices require an efficient protection against accidental abusive mismatching. Visual instructions and colored labeling are not sufficient. Just a minimal contact, only for the fraction of a second, may cause a voltage flashover and damage the terminal device. Not only the risk of repair cost caused by such kind of incident but also the potential consequences like a system breakdown or e. g. an inoperative train may underline the importance of a mechanical coding of critical interconnections as an indispensable safety factor.

Having specialized in EMC interconnection solutions, Inotec electronics GmbH has developed a unique D-Sub coding system for hoods with screw locking. It does not only reliably avoid mismatching, it also improves the EMI / RFI shielding performance of the interface by providing a consistent full metal contact.

Coding system for D-Sub interfaces

  • Up to 70 coding versions offers protection against unintentional or abusive mating of connectors
  • Full metal coding elements improve grounding contact for optimal EMC
  • Coding elements are either riveted to the connector shell or screwed on the device
  • Accurate alignment with special positioning device
  • Easy insertion of the coding pins with special pre-adjusted hand tool
  • Suitable for all Inotec D-Sub hoods prepared for coding (see symbol)
  • Can be variably used with M3 or 4-40 UNC jackscrews
  • Easy to process in workshop or field
