I've been caught in the past with mini-DIN data sheets.
The data sheet showed numbering for the 'locations' of the pins rather than the pin 
numbers. Also be careful of the view that they show.
This is the numbering that I ended up with for right angle connectors (board edge 
uppermost)

3 1 2 4
5     6

and

3 1 2 5
6 4 7 8

regards,

Phil.

Sounds to me, like many things, each vendor has their own standard ;)

Honestly, I've no idea if mini-DIN has a numbering standard (though the name, DIN 
means Deutsches Insitut für Normung, a German standards org)

What I normally do is use the numbering (or naming) that either makes most sense in my 
application or matches the chosen vendor for the component.
I've found quite often that a seemingly identical component from two manufacturers can 
me subtly mechanically different.
Choose one part from one manufacturer and specify that in the drawing.

It would be worse to use the 'standard' in the drawing then have a difference from the 
supplier, you can bet somebody some time will wire up the plug wrong, following the 
text on it.

Hi everyone.

Anybody who knows if there is any official standard pin numbering for the
MIN DIN sockets ?

I ask due to the fact that I have seen 3 different ways of numbering, from 3
different vendors.

Have a nice day
Peder
