Part numbers for the motherboard/wiring connectors
#1
Anyone know where to order extra motherboard headers and wiring connectors? Looking to make a custom cable for my e3d.

I am looking for that info as well.
As far as I have been able to determine is they are some kind of "Board to Wire" connector?
I have not been able to find the name of the specific type / style. Apparently this kind of connector is so commonplace that it is never mentioned.
(Anyone know what these things are?)

Molex makes several series in this style. I thought I had found the right kind but on ordering up discovered that I had not Sad

I have ordered up some "build your own" jumper cables from pololu. These /should/ fit the same pins so I can swap out things without cutting wires. I will post how those work out

I haven't looked at the board specifically, but they are standard wire-to-board headers. There are several major manufacturers of that style connector, and while they aren't inter-connectable, they are very easy to identify. I deal with designing around these connectors every day.

My guess is that they are a 1mm pitch wire to board connector. Probably a Molex or JST...or a knockoff of one of them.

I'll try to look at my machine when I get home and try to identify them. Keep in mind, you will need a crimp tool to terminate wires for any cable construction. They are all crimp terminations. You may be able to get by with a needle nose pliers, but to get a good consistent termination that will properly engage with the plastic header, you really should use a crimp tool....which aren't particularly cheap.

They are XH2.54 connectors. (Essentially the same thing as JST connectors.) They are typically specified as XH2.54-NP, where the N is the number of pins you need.
