Screw Terminals 2.54mm Pitch (2-Pin)

These are simple 2-position screw terminals with 2.54mm pitch pins. Rated up to 150V @ 6A, this terminal can accept 30 to 18AWG wire. The 2.54mm pitch will line up with standard 0.1" perf boards.

Connector Basics

January 18, 2013

Connectors are a major source of confusion for people just beginning electronics. The number of different options, terms, and names of connectors can make selecting one, or finding the one you need, daunting. This article will help you get a jump on the world of connectors.

Spacing needed for PRT-10571

These CAN NOT be stacked on a standard 1/10" breadboard. You need and extra 0.4mm to 0.5mm gap between each terminal for stacking. You can make a row of these screw terminals if you skip a 1/10" hole between each connector.

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

1 Soldering

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

    Anyone know where I can find an Eagle part for this?

  • dRudRu / about 13 years ago / 4

    Excellent! Thanks for adding these to your inventory. One request: PLEASE add the 4 pin and 8 pin version to your inventory. 0.1" pitch terminal blocks are way overpriced at Digikey, etc.

  • Member #405152 / about 11 years ago / 2

    Need the 4-pin versions of these!

  • Embedded Bob / about 12 years ago / 2

    Is this part in the Eagle library? Any idea what it's called?

  • Member #316607 / about 12 years ago / 2

    Where are the 3-pin versions of these?

  • WizenedEE / about 13 years ago / 1

    Has anyone tried plugging these into an Arduino for a simple, cheap screwshield?

  • dozonoff / about 13 years ago / 1

    I had the same problem (fitting in to breadboard). You can do it easily without twisting the pins by putting them in adjacent rows at a 45 degree angle (that is, in the next column of the next row).

  • SD / about 13 years ago / 1

    I tried plugging one of these in my breadboard (probably not meant to be used with a breadboard) and it wasn't going in very well with the pins the way they are built. All I had to do to make it work was twist the pins 90° with some needle nose pliers and now this little baby plugs right into the breadboard nice and snug. I have the leads to my little piezo speaker fitted to it for some experiments as I'm learning.

    These will come in very handy, as will the spring terminal version that appears under "related products." Standard pin spacing, excellent!

Fairly nifty!

Great for some prototyping I was taking care of. Especially useful on breadboards!

Good Terminals

Nice pin headers... I've used a lot of them. (It's also a bit cheaper here than I've seen elsewhere.)

pins not long enough for breadboard

While the pitch is correct, the pins are not long enough to stay snapped into a breadboard.

Sorry for any inconvenience. but these are not actually supposed to be used with a solder-less breadboard. They do work great on a solder-able breadboard though.
