Screw Terminals 5mm Pitch (2-Pin)

Screw Terminals with 5mm pitch pins. Comes in 2 or 3 positions and have the really cool feature of slide-locking together to form any size you need (4, 5, up to 20 without problems). Rated up to 300V @ 8A. Terminal can accept 26 to 14AWG wire. 5mm/197mil pin pitch will line up well with standard 0.1" perf boards but the pins are thick enough (1.0mm OD) that you may need to increase the hole diameter on some perf boards.

Note: The 2-pin terminals only connect to other 2-pin terminals. They will not connect to the 3-pin terminals.

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.

  • Which direction do these go in the Eagle library? Is the front the end with the little circle or the long rectangle?

  • Steffin / about 10 years ago / 1

    In Eagle, what is the correct spacing for 'interlocking'? Should the larger rectangle footprint be touching each other with the smaller squares overlapping into adjacent footprint?

    • Steffin / about 10 years ago * / 1

      It 'appears' the end of the large rectangle footprint needs to overlap on itself for the next terminal. Looking at the dimensional drawing, it has the center of one terminal to the center of another... .440945" (11.2mm), this allows the ends of the footprint to overlap. (Adjust dimensions in Eagle by viewing the information of the footprint)

    I believe there's a minor typo in the Sparkfun Library - M025MM references PRT-08433, but that is the 3 pin terminal. It should say PRT-08432.

    • Double check that you have the updated library. I think we already addressed this issue.

  • Member #302799 / about 11 years ago / 1

    I bought 3 of these from somewhere else not knowing the you guys had them. Work great on a perf-board, although I did have to take a knife to the holes and grind them to be a little bit bigger. I can't comment on their performance as I haven't finished the board yet. (big MOSFET motor driver)

  • Member #354382 / about 12 years ago / 1

    I can't find the part in the Fritzing library - all I can see is shields, sensors, lilypads, and breakout boards. Is there something I'm missing??

  • Will the pins fit in Sparkfun's Arduino proto shield, or will the holes on that board need to be increased as well?

  • CW / about 14 years ago / 1

    I should have said, I am having problems finding this part in the SparkFun Eagle library.

    • It's under the M02 part. M02 is a 2-pin device with lots of different footprints. You're looking for the last one on the list - 'M025MM' (M02, 5MM FP).

  • CW / about 14 years ago / 1

    I am having trouble finding this part in the Eagle library. What is the name of the part? (I am just starting out with Eagle).
