Spring Terminals - PCB Mount (5-Pin)

These are small spring terminals. Open the aperature with the small arm, insert the wire, release the arm and the wire is held firmly in place. This is a good quick way to to interface to bare wires. Capable of higher current and more resilient than breadboard or female header type connections.

Terminals with 0.1" standard spacing. Inserts directly into perf and proto board. Comes in 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 positions. Rated up to 150V @ 2A. Terminal can accept 26 to 20AWG wire.

    Best substitue for a real eagle package is con-wago 234-202 (203, 204, etc depending on how many terminals)

    The pins and pads are in the proper places. The sparkfun part itself is a little bit wider and shorter, so i wouldn't run thiese right up against each other, give a few MM of clearance, but otherwise, they seem nearly identical.

  • Any change of getting an eagle footprint of these?

  • Brock Lee / about 12 years ago / 1

    Hey, when these are inserted into perf board do they obscure any of the un-used holes? I need connectors for 20 lines of parallel data which are all in a consecutive row. Haven't been able to find a 20 pin connector and all of the 5 or 10 pin connectors obscure 1 or 2 holes at each end.
