I'm hacking these connectors you find in computers that connect to disk drives and sticking them on the male pins.. There's got to be an easier/less clumsy way to connect. I'm not even sure what these connectors are called or where to get them besides opening up old computers.

thanks.

hi, the Wiring board comes with male headers (pins) to access the micocontroller I/O,
it is possible to use a variety of connectors to get a good connection to the pins. Check out this female connectors ... Digikey part number 929850-01-08-ND

Hi!
I was wondering if anybody tried these Phoenix screw connectors on the Wiring board and if they fit. They are pluggable on standard male headers I think, no soldering required.
(Digikey part # 277-1613-ND)

It doesn't seem like, check connectors with pin spacing of 2.54mm or .100"

Should I unsolder the current jacks and then solder in the terminal blocks?  Or do I plug the terminal blocks in and maybe a dab of hot glue to hold them in place?

The terminal that look like the ones are made by Phoenix Contact type MPT 0.5.  they are 2.54 pitch and 2 to 12 terminal.  I found them a seggest at Digi-Key.

Can you point me to the aprt number? I know some of the screw terminals might require to unsolder the make pins in the board, since they also have male pins to fix them to the circuit board.
