General Description

Centronics, MDR, VHDCI, HPDSUB  Connector Guide
See our connector identification guide!
This breakout board contains a 68-pin half-pitch D-type Female connector. Each of the 68 connector pins is brought out to screw terminal blocks, allowing connections to be made easily. Each pin is also brought to solder pads (2 per pin) at 0.1" spacing, allowing easy addition of 0.1" pin headers or other components. Please note that the breakout boards are manufactured with a connection between each connector pin and the corresponding terminal block position; no soldering of any type is necessary. The solder pads simply provide an area for making optional connections to additional headers or other components.

The connector used on this product goes by several different names, including Half-Pitch DSUB, HPDSUB, HPDB68, Micro DB68, .050 DSUB, Amplimite .050 Series, 0.050 D-Type, HD68, SCSI, and SCSI III. Our connector guide can help to verify the connector family you have.

National Instruments Compatibility

National Instruments™ uses the 68-pin half-pitch DSUB connector on some of their DAQ cards and accessories. This Winford breakout board is a good option for interfacing to these National Instruments products. Note that NI™ actually uses two different styles of 68-pin connectors: the VHDCI, and the half-pitch DSUB (0.050 D-type). For more information on VHDCI connection products, please see our BRKAVH68FV1 breakout board page.

National Instruments offers several 68-pin half-pitch DSUB breakout boards with varying layout and functional options. The Winford BRKBDP68FV1 breakout board is very similar in function to the basic NI models CB-68LP and CB-68LPR. The main difference is that the Winford board contains a female connector, while the NI board contains a male connector. This may affect your cable selection.

These break out boards are perfect for experimentation and prototype work, as well as for use in permanent installations. They are well-suited for interfacing with data acquisition equipment or any other devices that use a Half-Pitch DSUB connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", "terminator", or "interface module".

HPDSUB Connector Details

The Half-Pitch DSUB (HPDSUB) series of connectors provides a compact arrangement of pin contacts on 0.05" centers, which is tighter than full-size DSUB connectors.

Winford Engineering currently utilizes HPDSUB connectors from Amp™ / TE Connectivity™ on these breakout boards; connector details are listed below.

Applications

This breakout board is general-purpose in nature and useful when interfacing to a variety of equipment. The 68-pin HPDSUB connector has traditionally been known is the SCSI-3 (SCSI-III) connector. It is also used in data aquisition and I/O applications.

Mounting Options

These products are available in two different mounting variants. Product numbers ending with -DIN come with DIN clips already installed and ready to snap onto 35mm or 32mm DIN rail. Product numbers ending with -FT have stick-on rubber feet installed on the bottom side, allowing for benchtop use or panel mounting. For panel mounting, we suggest 1/4" nylon standoffs under the mounting holes, and #6 screws.
