General Description

Centronics, MDR, VHDCI, HPDSUB  Connector Guide
Use these cables to interconnect equipment which utilizes 68-pin MDR (Mini Delta Ribbon) connectors. These attractive cables feature 68-pin MDR Male connectors on each end, overmolded ends with strain reliefs, twisted pair wiring, and a shielded cable jacket. Latches secure the cable to the mating connector. Two cable lengths (3 feet and 6 feet) are available. These cables are general purpose and are compatible with Winford Engineering's 68-pin Mini D-Ribbon breakout boards.
The connector used on this product goes by several different names, including Mini D Ribbon, Mini Delta Ribbon, MDR, Mini Centronics, Half-Pitch Centronics, HPCN, HPCN68, Half-Pitch CN, and Micro Centronics. It is also occasionally referred to as a SCSI2 connector, though that is not typically a proper use of the term.

MDR Connector Details

The Mini Delta Ribbon (MDR) series of connectors provides a compact arrangement of durable sliding 'ribbon' contacts. The high contact density and good performance at high speeds have yielded many applications for this connector type. These are 'half-pitch' connectors, meaning that the contact spacing is tighter than full-size Centronics connectors, such as those used on our BRKDC36F or BRKDC50F breakout boards. The 'half-pitch' connectors utilize contacts on 0.05" centers.

Twisted Pairing

This cable utilizes twisted pair wiring. The pair mapping is as follows: 1/35, 2/36 ... 33/67, 34/68.
