JST Jumper 5 Wire Assembly

This is a simple five wire cable. Great for jumping from board to board or just about anything else. There is a 5-pin JST connector on one end, bare cable on the opposite end. It also comes with the mating connector for the JST.

JST Connector in a Breadboard?

While not ideal, the 4 pin version will barely fit a 0.1" breadboard but the 5 pin version will have problems.

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.

    It'd be great to have a proper eagle part for this :(

    BEWARE.... These don't use the standard .1" spacing. They are smaller.

    does it work correctly with sharps dust sensor?

    Does anyone know where I can find the eagle footprint for the JST connector? The Sparkfun Libraries don't seem to have it

    would be great to get these in 10 inch length

    Wish I'd remembered this when I ordered the Link Sprite lol.

  • The datasheet for the JST connector is given above:

    • dpitchfo / about 10 years ago * / 1

      The JST Connector datasheet does not have dimensions. However, the Datasheet has the part number that you can get proper datasheet from Digikey. The 5pin connector is S5B-PH-KS (Digikey: 455-1722-ND)

      • Check your PDF viewer, works fine in both my browsers. reload the page, reboot browser?

          I am running Ubuntu 10.04.. Seen that before.. I got through digikey.

  • Shifted / about 12 years ago / 1

    From the data sheet:
    This is a thin, low-profile 2.0mm pitch connector 8.0mm in height after mounting and 4.5mm in width.
    The datasheet has errors on my computer so I can't find the series which I think is on page 3 or 4.

  • omegahacker / about 12 years ago / 1

    I want to echo the first question, but more specifically: JST is not a connector type, it's an entire company that sells many dozens of different types. Please update the description with both the connector pitch and the actual series.
