Hand drawn “data sheets”…

Pt 10732

We really love these old drawn ‘architect drawn’ datasheets. These connectors are most often seen on computer power supplies.

  1. Wow, 1966 – I had no idea those connectors had been around that long. That explains the use of pencil instead of CAD.

  2. It’s odd that everyone calls them “Molex connectors” now, since AMP originated them, and they didn’t mate with any contemporary connectors from Molex. Once this type of connector gained popularity, Molex did start making them, as did many other connector vendors.

    I first saw them in 1976 on 5.25″ floppy drives, and that’s what led to them being used on 5.25″ and 3.5″ hard drives and optical drives. I don’t think there was any particularly high-visibility use of them prior to that.

  3. Note also that page 2, which may or may not have had additional dimensions, is missing from AMP’s PDF file. In the single page that is present, not enough dimensions are given to be able to verify that it mates with another connector, or to design a mating connector.
