Was just trying to identify the contacts on this jack socket (datasheet: http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/2047485.pdf ) Image of schematic below. I was thinking that 1 would be ground? Which I guess would then lead 2/3 to be right/left? This may be totally wrong however, and I'd appreciate the help of anyone who can clear this up. Thanks.

Jack socket


It may help to realize that the schematic symbol for this connector is a representation of what's inside the physical connector:

enter image description here

Pin 1 is in contact with the sleeve of the plug, pin 2 is the tip, and pin 3 is the ring.


The tip of the jack is the left channel (2), the ring (3) is the right channel and the sleeve (1) is ground.

Like this one: enter image description here
