Arduino Shield 1.5.7 Connectors

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

by any chance does anyone know the specifications (or even product id) of the connectors used on the arduino shield 1.5.7. I upgraded mine from 1.5.3 and unfortunately the design changed quite a bit, so I'm not able to connect my peripherals to the board in an orderly fassion.

Many thanks and best regards

P.S. I wasn't able to get this information out of the github repository.

JST is the name of the white connectors.

Note, there is still room on the 1.5.7 board for the older large connectors, so you could also remove the white connectors from the 1.5.7 board and solder in the bigger green connectors.

(1.5.3 electronics is quite rare, I've only seen a handful machines with electronics that old)

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JST_connector

Mind the reference links, you will find detailed descriptions of every JST connector there is. Maybe you find the correct type in the BOM for the electronics, most JST connectors have a 2-character series designator, like the XH series (very wide spread in RC electronics).
