    Default Need MFM/RLL/ESDI 20-pin data connector without locating key

    Not actually DEC but hopefully someone on the forum can help. I'm looking for a 20-pin edge connector similar to that used for the data cable on MFM/RLL drives but without the locating key in the connector (or with a removable key).

    The application is for a test connector on the CPU card used in HP 98x0 desktop calculators. The card has contacts in the same configuration as an MFM drive but without the slot, so a keyed connector won't fit. The only cables I had on hand have the key actually molded in and so far I've destroyed two cables trying to cut out the key without damaging the adjacent contacts.

    Any help appreciated - parts, cables, part numbers, etc.

    Thanks,
    Jack

    I have some without keys.

    What length are you looking for?
    If you're looking for DS/DD or DS/HD 3" or 5" floppy disks, PM me. I've got some new, used, and factory over-labeled disks for sale.

    Length doesn't really matter since I'm just going to terminate it on a piece of perf-board with pins for my logic analyzer. I'll PM you with address etc.

    Thanks!
