name of the connector to the motors?
« on: May 08, 2017, 02:08:47 AM »
Hi,
Does anyone know the name of the type of plugs / connectors used on the eleks boards to the stepper motors? I have some spare stepper motors I would like to use (rotary attachment for lasering circular objects) and would like to get the same style plugs so I can quickly swap the motors.
A quick look online and I see mention of a Molex connector but these are different to the Molex I know from the HD connectors of yeoldie days..
Might it be a dupont connector? All I found was this

and I think the connector I am looking for is the one on the right.. but from memory I only need a 4 wire connector...
Or even a JST 4 pin male? This one looks the closest from the picture I see online..
Any pointers are appreciated.
Ki

stopped looking on the intrawebs and looked here...
and this might be what I am looking for, still not sure what the connector is called though.

From memory the motors are a 6 pin JST-PH series, the ones on the board are a 4 pins JST-XH

PH is 2mm pitch and XH is 0.1" (2.54mm)

so just make sure that pin 1 to pin 6 is exactky 10mm and you are golden.

more looking online and I think the TJC female connector is what I am looking for (from what I can tell off google images!)
I have ordered some so will see if they fit in my L5 board.
