I’m currently using “Jumper Wire Contact Pin Connector w/ Strain Relief Male” Velleman WJW008 and “Jumper Wire Contact Pin Connector w/ Strain Relief Female” Velleman WJW007 that I picked up at a local electronics hobby store. I’m wondering if Digikey sells a similar item.
I’m working in designing an open source “kit” in support of an Open Source Covid-19 project, and we’d like to use Digikey as a one stop shop location.
What I’m looking for is a connector kit, than enables you to solder a wire to the insert, then place that metal insert into a hardshell plastic housing. These are spaced small enough (0.1" square) to fit multiple sockets onto a single 0.1" header. Here is an image of a typical female connector.
At first three glances I’m not seeing anything, but I’m not sure the best search terms to use.
Note: we’re actually using just the female metal insert to make it easy to soldering wires to a potentiometer, with pins designed for insertion to a circuit board. Our form factor does not support the use of a board. We’re doing it simple:
- solder wire to insert
- place insert on potentiometer pin
- solder insert to pot.
- Add heat shrink.
Any ideas on an alternative that make that job easy?
Many thanks, LB.
