3-pin 1.27mm pitch housing to connect to a detector


I am looking at purchasing a detector that is 9mm by 9mm in size with x3 1.27mm pitch SMT pins. Am not really sure exactly what I am looking for, currently was thinking of finding a housing then soldering a wire to the housing to then be able to use a more common/cheaper/easier obtained connector to use for the survey meter.

The closest size I’ve current found is CLP-103-02-F-D-TR Samtec Inc. | Connectors, Interconnects | DigiKey but I believe that is for a circuit board?



Welcome to the DigiKey TechForum kca12.
What kind of detector are you looking for? The part number you mentioned is a 6 position female connector that mount to a circuit board, with 6 pins (3 on each side).
Or are you just looking for a connector to plug your detector into?

Hi David,

Just the connector to plug it in to. I’ve been filtering out the catalog but haven’t been having much luck. The detector only has 3 pin, the part I included the link to has the pitch and pin spacing I’m looking for I think.

Would you happen to know if such size connectors exist? I am aware this is non standard size.



Click here for 2073-BD080-03-A-0230-L-G-ND. Would this style work for you? It would normally mount through holes in a circuit board.

There is one designed to solder wires to, but is more expensive.
Click here for ED10288-ND.

The second one is probably more along the lines of what I was looking for, thank you!

You’re welcome.

Hello again David,

After getting back in touch with the detector supplier, they confirmed that the SMT pins are square M50 pins (0.4mm x 0.4mm with 1.27mm pitch), so I will need a different connector.

So now I think I am looking for what I think is like a thermocouple terminal with slots for M50 connectors not for actually T measurement but so that a lengthy wire goes out the other end.

I appreciate any help, thanks!


Hello Kurtis

I am not finding anything like this on our website. I am sorry. I would wait though and see if someone else posts anything. I might be jsut missing it.
