Female connector
« on: June 05, 2012, 04:00:10 AM »
Hi, this is a newbie question, so please forgive me. I am building the $50 robot (back at it) and I am using the Molex breakaway male headers. Can anyone tell me what I need to use for the female connector?

In particular for the battery connection, but this is also a more general connection as I would like to be able to use this for switches and also DC motors.

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm assuming that you have 0.100 spacing headers, right?
If so look at this:
http://www.molex.com/molex/products/family?key=sl_connectors&channel=products&chanName=family&pageTitle=Introduction&parentKey=wire_to_board_connectors

The FFC or the IDT should work for you.  Personally I do not like Molex its always hard to find things on their site

In my job I prefer Samtec esat to find things and if you only need a few they sample them too you, always a plus

Hope this helps

Art, yes, .100 spacing is correct.

Thanks!

I will definitely check out Samtec as well.

Appreciate the help.
