Wire Connectors for Accelerometer Board

Postby wheemzy » Tue Apr 10, 2018 7:13 pm

I've burned through two accelerometer boards and I want the third to really last.

What are the best wire connectors to use for the hot end and thermistor wiring?

I looked into using screw terminal connectors but they only seem to come in two pins or more, but not one pin.

Since the holes for the hot end leads are so far apart, the two pin connectors won't work.


Thanks,

Matthew

They're uninsulated, so you'd be wise to wrap them in Kapton, but I've used "knarps" from the BMX store before. They're the adjustable ball end from a bike brake cable.

well that's certainly a creative solution. :D

Was thinking of using pin connectors for the thermistors....

I guess something like these would work for the heater cartridge.

Any particular reason you choose the knarps parts?
