JST Right Angle Connector - Through-Hole 3-Pin

This is a 3-pin, through-hole PH series JST connector. The pins are spaced by 2mm.

We really like the solid locking feeling and high current rating on these small connectors. This connector mates with our 3-pin jumper wire, and may be useful for interfacing with the popular Sharp infrared proximity sensors or our serial LCDs.

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.

    Why not carry the normal (not right angle) of this connector?

    Will this fit a servo connector?

    Will this work with the LilyPad Protoboard (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9102)?

    • Kamiquasi / about 10 years ago / 2

      No-and-yes. This is a 2mm pin spacing part, while the LilyPad Protoboard uses a 2.54mm (0.1") pad spacing. I think the leads are long enough to get away with a little bending of the pins, though.
      Even if you don't manage to get the leads through the holes, you could bend the outer ones at right angles and merely solder them to the tops of the pads (less mechanical resilience being the trade-off.)

        That is helpful, thanks!

        It sounds like it could work. I would actually just like to be able to disconnect two different pieces of fabric, and this jst connected seems like it is highly recommended. Do you have a suggestion of a better way to connect 3 wires to my lilypad project?

        Thanks again :)

          This is probably a decent product for that, as they do fit together fairly tightly - which is what you'd want with wearables that move around :)

  • I can't find the Eagle library parts for the JST 3-pin connector or the 4-pin and 5-pin connectors (which come with the wire assembly) in the SparkFun Eagle library. Anyone have any suggestions for creating a PCB designed for these JST connectors?

    • Kamiquasi / about 10 years ago / 1

      The JST 3-pin, 4-pin and 5-pin connectors are part of SparkFun-Connectors.lbr in the devices "M03", "M04" and "M05". Both regular and right-angle PTH parts are included and a few select SMD ones.

  • Needs More Eagle! / about 10 years ago / 1

    This product needs more eagle...

  • any idea if and when you'll carry vertical JST sockets?

  • CJG / about 14 years ago / 1

    Any idea if this is the size for a 2.4 ghz spektrum satellite receiver ??
    My calipers say the female side I want to connect is just over a half cm.
