connectors


All the PC boards of our robots up to 2013 (the last one was <Temblo>) are equipped with Weidmueller connectors, pitch 5.08mm. As Weidmueller took these orange connectors and their mating parts out of production, we had to find compatible alternatives.

The cable parts (plugs) are exchangeble with following IMO parts, rated for 15 A current and colored green:

2-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3030

3-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3049

4-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3057

5-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3065

6-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3073

8-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3081

10-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3090

12-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3103

The PC-mount sockets (top entry types) we originally used had open sides and could be soildered in place next to each other. The IMO parts have closed ends, such that soldering them in side to side does not work. With the IMO parts, the sides have to be filed away before soldering, such that they fit our boards.

The part numbers for IMO headers, top entry are:

2-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3111

3-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3120

4-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3138

5-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3146

6-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3154

8-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3162

10-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3170

12-way: IMO, Farnell order nr. 963-3189

IMO offers also a series of compatible side entry headers. Alternative parts (requiring a little less filing), made by Phoenix Contact (MSTBVA2.5 Series 12A):

4-way: CTB9308/4, Farnell order nr. 171-7024
