Molex crimp housing / terminal pins in UK
« on: January 31, 2009, 12:58:38 PM »
I have spent quite a while searching for the kind of connectors used in the wire connector tutorial: http://www.societyofrobots.com/electronics_wire_connector.shtml. I don't seem to be able to find them in England (and I don't fancy paying £12 shipping from DigiKey) so I was wondering if anyone knew if they are called something different in the UK or know any suppliers over here!

The best I have found are http://www.rapidonline.com/Cables-Connectors/Connectors-Multipole/PCB-Interconnect/2.54mm-KK-PCB-Connectors/66414 but they are quite fat and I don't want to have to space apart my headers on the circuit board!

Thanks for your help :-)

Oliver

Hi,


I would have thought that you knew Maplin, who's got what you're after http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx?criteria=YW25C&source=15

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

Yeah I have checked out Maplin, however they only seem to sell the fat ones like the ones I linked above :-)

You might have to ask them.


Here's the SL series right on Molex' site: http://www.molex.com/molex/products/listview.jsp?query=70066&path=cHome%23%23-1%23%23-1%7E%7Eq3730303636%7E%7EncCRIMPHOUSINGS%23%230%23%233j&offset=0&autoNav=2&sType=a&filter=&fs=&channel=Products&Lang=en-US

The U.K. Distributor is
Molex UK, A Branch of Molex
Molex House, Millennium Center
Farnham, Surrey GU97XX England
Tel: +44 (1252) 720720
Fax: +44 (1252) 720721
E-mail: [email protected] 

Give them a call, or drop them an email, asking for retail sale - or you might tell them that you're working on a robot and ask whether you could buy some as samples (you might be lucky and get some for free).

Søren
