British Telecom Connector - BTD (Female)

These digital (LH) British Telecom connectors are primarily used by our English friends across the pond but here at SparkFun we like to use them for Vernier sensors. These 6-pin connectors are very similar to the RJ11s we use here in North America except instead of a bottom-mounted hook lock, the BTD uses a side-mounted lock. These BTD connectors are perfect for educators or other users who need to set up a Custom Vernier digital sensor which produces a voltage that needs to be measured like temperature, force, light, or sound.

    Any chance you are selling the male ends of these and the BTA sockets?

    My bad, the spec sheet says the spacing is 3 mm. Still, I'd like it if I didn't have to make the eagle footprint.-Jack

    Is there an eagle footprint for the BT connectors? I have not seen one and the spacing seems a bit odd (1/8"?).-Jack
