Looking for connector specs
« on: March 29, 2017, 10:09:11 PM »
The connectors on the laser control board, the steppers and the laser module must have some standard definition.
Does anyone know what the connector family is called and where components can be purchased?

They are most likely JST XH series, 2.5mm pitch.

Turns out there appear to be 2 major types.
The black ones, like those that will plug onto an Arduino are called, "Dupont."
The smaller white ones like those that plug into the steppers and laser are called, "JST".
I purchased a collection of a few hundred of multiple sizes of each of them for about $16.00 each delivered.

They are all JST's.
The motors are a JST PH 6 pin. (2.0mm pitch) harder to find, banggood hardly touches them.
The TTL laser is 2.54mm pitch JST XH 3 pin.
The Mana SE connectors  are also JST XH 4 pin.
