Connector Pin Counting Sequence

alt-count-250  pin stagger count200

The different families of Cirris adapters that have this counting pattern are listed here. 

  • AHED
  • AHEF
  • A2MM
  • AH50
  • ADVI
  • APCD
  • APCS
  • AUSB
  • ACEF
50pos-m-dsub  pin 50pos-sub-225

Column count is simply starting at the bottom of the row on the right (female) on the left (male) and count up to the top. You then pick up the count at the bottom of the next row to the left/right and count to the top again. The pattern shown is for a 50 pos. connector but smaller D-Sub connectors will have only two columns but the pattern remains the same. This is column count.

  • A8MM
  • ABRM - ABRF
  • ARMG - ARFG
  • AD5P - AD5S
  • ADBP - ADBS
  • ADPG - ADSG
  • AMDP - AMDS
  • AMPG - AMSG
  • AVM1 - AVM2
column-ab-300 pin alt-column-250 

Column count #2 is simular to the standard column count. However on this connector there is a 'A row' and a 'B row'. Both start at #1 at the bottom and count up from there.
