Q10075 DB37 connector - Female

Tags: Help, DB37, MSXB075, MSXB076

Applies to: accessory boards with female DB37 connector

I have an accessory board with a female DB37 connector for outputs. How should I connect to it?

Female (receptable, socket) DB37 connectors are used primarily for analog outputs on our output expansion boards. They are subminiature D connectors with 37 receptacles in two rows. They mate with male (plug) DB37 connectors on connecting cables.

MSXB075/MSXB076 - Isolated Analog Output Module

A female DB37 connector is used in the following models, where x and y denote version release and package form, respectively:

  • MSXB075-x-y3K-F - 4 analog outputs
  • MSXB076-x-y3K-F - 8 analog outputs

It is possible to route the analog outputs from a MSXB075 or MSXB076 directly into every other channel of a MSXB084 or MSXB085 by using a gender changer.

Figures 1a and 1b show the pinout when connecting to the female DB37 connector on the MSXB075 and MSXB076, with the corresponding connections on the male DB37 connector on the cable. For the MSXB075, the signal and ground pins for DACOUT5 through DACOUT8 are not connected .
