Well, they vary for what you may need of course, but in my case, I wanted to connect to existing
DD11-DF female shell/male pin 15 and 6 contact connectors.
Searching the te.com site, there are some similar parts, but the ones which look correct are:
Commercial MATE-N-LOK-S, 1-171196-0 (digikey A106239-ND), 6-pin
CMNL PLUG HSG P/M NATL, 1-480323-0 (digikey A1427-ND), 15-pin
There are a number of pin options for these, but I picked: 170121-1 (digikey A122316-ND), tin, 14-20 AWG
Once the parts arrive, I will confirm if I chose wisely...
