Title: Physically connecting to the wiring??
Post by aldwyn on 02/17/09 at 10:24:35
Hi guys,

I have just recently bought a wiring board from sparkfun and was wondering how you actually physically connect wires to it without soldering them permanently.

The arduino has female header sockets which are easier to prototype on, which is what I'm used to.

Is there a way to connect to the wiring which is easier than looping the wires around the pins? Help is much appreciated.

Thanks,

These things work pretty well.

Just standard molex crimped things crimpers.

You can also put a female female connector on it

Your image link URL above is dead - can you provide a link to what you're referencing?  Also, I've been having a hard time finding female - female screw terminals.  Do you have a link to a provider for those?  Thanks!

update: will these do?

also, please provide a link to a proper type of servo wire connector.  thanks!

yes, those will work, just make sure they are .100 inch (2.54mm) space between pins check out this ones: http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=S4108-ND you can solder cables to them  and then plug them into the Wiring male headers.

I also found these, which seem like they might be at the proper pitch (spacing) and work:
