Every manufacture and series have different part number break downs. Most manufacturers will have it on the datasheet or a separate document containing just the part number break down.
CUI part number MD-60 has the part number breakdown on the datasheet: https://www.cuidevices.com/product/resource/md.pdf
We have datasheets for most of our products. They are listed under the Documents & Media section on our website.
While Lemo has a quick reference guide on their website as you can see here: https://www.lemo.com/faqs/Quick_Reference/plug_id_guide.pdf
Here are some common part number callouts:
- Usually start with the series call out ( over 58 thousand part numbers just in the housing section that start with their series call out)
- Another common component of part numbers is the number positions usually followed by a P or S calling out if it’s a pin or socket.
- Towards the end of the part number is other features like contact plating or if they have a strain relief.
