I need to make connections to an Arduino 2560 CPU card with a stacked display on top. I am interfacing to (4) 23 gage multistranded wires from an incremental encoder. This design is to go into a commercial product now under contract.
I only need two connection on (a) 1x8 female pcb mounted connector and (b) a 2X18 female socket at the end. The 1x8 must be a 90 degree connection to get out from under the upper display board.
I can not use single pins as the mechanical grip of the female connectors are individually weak and predisposes them to fall out for lack of grip. Even though I only have 2 connections per header, I must have a connection with all pins mechanically in place to mechanically secure them from coming out.
The pins need to be standard 0.025" (square) on 0.1 centers and not solder blades.
A 1x8 and 2x18 male connector designed to take a ribbon cable would be fine … alternative suggestions are very welcome!
Thank you! I appreciate your good assistance!!!
