I purchased these pre-crimped wires and also the housings for the male pins (digi-key part number WM11182-ND). However, the pins on the pre-crimped wires seem much too small compared to the actual Picoblade male pins, as clearly seen in this photo (the female pins are the same):
Seeing the data sheet of the precrimped wires (the picture above), it uses the 50061-8000 pins for the male pins, which say are “planned for obsolecense” on Molex’s website, and I couldn’t find the matching housing for these 50061-8000 pins on Digikey. The male pins currently active for Picoblade seem to be the 0501338000 pins.
Therefore, I’m wondering:
- are there pre-crimped wires with male (and female) pins which use the (apparently) newer, 0501338000 pins?
- are there male pin housings which match the 50061-8000 male pins?
- could anybody recommend other wire-to-wire connector solutions with precrimped wires available?
If none of these are possible, I suppose I could get a proper crimper for Picoblade connectors and crimp them myself.
