Connector question

(Gary Webb) #1

Machine: diode laser / cohesion3d board

Board: cohesion3d board

Problem/ Question: Can someone tell me which connector types are in use on the board? XH? XHP? I need to make a breakout cable and cant figure out which ones to order.


Hi Gary,

Just back from travels and recovering now.

What do you need to connect to regarding your breakout cable?

The X and Y motors are JST XH 2.54mm because this is a keyed connector on the K40 laser stock board and its derivatives.
The Z and A ports are regular 2.54mm male headers to allow for more options.

You can also use the screw terminals for the all the motor outputs.

The row of endstops at a the bottom is Molex KK style.

I find the Molex KK easier to crimp and use those on the plain headers all the time - this is what our connector pack contains. The only thing you won’t be able to use those on is the X and Y motor JST plugs, but again there are screw terminals for those.
