  • ELCO/EDAC pinout standard

    Hello,

    I'm thinking about putting ELCO/EDAC connectors on one of my snakes. I can find the connectors, pins, and crimper on line but I can't seem to find any kind of standard that others use for the pinout. Not that it really maters as I can come up with one of my own, but does anybody know of a source for a typical pinout configuration for a 20 channel snake?

    Thanks in advance.

    As far as a standard pin-out, here's the 90 pin (which I suspect is what you'll want to use for a 20ch. snake):

    They also have the 38, 56, and 120 pin-outs posted as-well:

    120 pin:

    FWIW: I believe the ADAT compatible snakes using the EDAC 516-56 connector are wired with a different pin-out than the pin-out shown on the Whirlwind website for the ELCO 56 pin connectors.

        Note that ELCO-EDAC connectors are pretty fragile. I have had good luck with them for years but always make sure one of our guys handles the connectors. We also use unloaded pin blocks as protectors.
