Identification of a pin connector


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am constantly repairing PCB's that have pin and socket connectors that I'd like to identify.
The pictures show a typical example.
The pins, which are square in section, measure 1.15mm in diameter.

What I'm looking for is a small kit of female crimps, crimp housings as well as male versions.

I have a similar kit of what I think are generally referred to as 'Dupont' connectors and are typically used with Arduino's, etc.

The connectors I'm looking for are substantially larger.  

Many thanks.

Hi there,

I think your best bet would be to search for this

Pin Header, Wire-to-Board, 3.96 mm, 1 Rows, N Contacts, Through Hole

Where 'N' = number of contacts required.

Farnell do a good range but you may need to buy larger quantities than you need.

For example 


Alternatively 'CPC Farnel'l are perhaps more suited to smaller quantities, the link is only a starting point, a similar search would provide the pin numbers you need for different boards.

Hope this helps.
