The Importance of Verifying Datasheets (Before Ordering)

Digi-Key carries millions & millions of parts. It is important to note that although rare, some product pages may sometimes have an error, or simply not list a crucial specification needed for your application. The Image on each product page is usually pretty accurate, however you will see the note below the image:
“Image shown is a representation only. Exact specifications should be obtained from the product data sheet.”

With millions of parts from thousands of manufacturers, it is more efficient for the manufacturer to list the base photo of a part, instead of listing photos of all the various versions of every part. 2040-ALEV100-BSN-ND is an example of how a product may vary from the photo listed on our website:

Digi-Key Photo (Bottom Mount):

Per datasheet, the ‘‘S’’ suffix calls out “Side Mount version”:

The photo is correct for this product as far as not showing the screws being supplied. Click here for screws 36-25051-ND | 1772-2837-ND which may work for you.

In Closing;

There can be many differences listed in the datasheet compared to the photo, such as different colors, whether or not hardware is included or what hardware is included, does it come with the cover, is the legend different on the part or do the pin functions and PCB landing match the previous part or design requirements? The datasheet is your friend, it is important to verify the datasheet (before ordering).
