Commodore DIN Plugs

Post by Thingumybob »

I’ve been looking for DIN plugs for the 1541. I wanted to purchase them from a distributor such as Mouser or Digi-Key; but, I can’t find an exact replacement.

Here’s what I did find though. A distributor named Pan Pacific sells a six pin DIN-5500-S.

I emailed them for a data sheet since they don’t have it posted on their website. I measured the pin spacing off the 1541 circuit board with calipers. The pin spacing appears to be an exact match.

I have one broken jack on my 1541 but I’m going to order two and change them both. I’ll update this post with my results.

There seems to be problems with the Canadian search engine of DigiKey. I logged on the US version and found these:

- 9-211509-0 from TE

- 5212045-1 from TE

- SDS-60J from CUI

- SDF-60J from CUI

These may have different footprints so check carefully.
