3-pin Female Housing Only

PRT-08096 only has the 3-pin Female Housing. The picture is confusing. Try looking at this picture [ https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0jwgLkjMWzDS3Fpa05qSmNXc0E ].

You will still need to order the crimp pins [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8100 ] and 3-pin male polarized connector [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8232 ] . Make sure that you are using crimp tool [ https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13193 ].

  • I thought there would be more than one - but it's juts one tiny connector :/ Ahh well, ebay will have more...

  • Suggestion - could you make separate pictures of each part, it's really confusing trying to work out which part is the housing, or the crimp pin or the connector when you show the same picture each time.

  • Could these connectors be used with the photo interupter board?
