Part numbers for connectors are usually found on the square flanges or round coupling rings. Part numbers can also be found on the mating connector.
A four-digit code is usually a date code specifying the year and week of manufacture.
A five-digit code is usually a cage code identifying the manufacturer.
Look for numbers on the mating connector. If you can't find any numbers, get information on the contact arrangement, size, color, and specific use.
A part number can be all numbers, all letters, or a mixture of the two. The latter is the most common form composed of usually a series identifier, a style, a size, and arrangement indicator.
