The micro-D connector gaskets are available in 9-pin through 100-pin sizes and will fit either plug or socket versions of the connectors. The gaskets are offered in beryllium copper or stainless-steel base materials and the recommended compression is 30% to 50% of the gasket height. Tin and electroless nickel are standard plating options for beryllium copper parts with other finishes available upon request.
