Hi All
I am looking for a supplier for the type of connectors that are sometimes used in the front panel of a desktop computer
(0.1in pitch)

They often have names on them like MIC-IN***L-OUT***GROUND.
The benefit of this type of connector is that they are made in single connection upwards and can be stacked into a header plug in any manner.

They will be perfect for one of the project I am working on with a friend

I have a few salvaged from old computes but no where near the number I need
Many Thanks
Paul

Paul, Magenta's are more like Epi's photo of the connector than your last one.

Hi John
The type you are referring to are the ones I normally use and are very common.

The type I am after are the ones sometimes found in PC's

This is because you can use them in any way to fill a header
One of the project I have been working on is for a general pic pcb rather than have the whole of a project on a breadboard.
So having this type of socket would be ideal for changing the wiring about
As you can easily move or add say a single I/O socket to any individual header pin of any port.

I think the single sockets are the most important ones that need to be able to side stack in to a header!

I guess I will have to reserve some old PCís from are local tip if I cant get hold of any

One good thing that I found out today
Is that it is possible to cut down the pc type sockets I am looking for to say a single socket but at the expense of losing a socket
So I should now have just about enough but I will still need more for other projects
The lead I have made by cutting them to pictured below

Hi Paul

The sockets you are looking for are 2.54mm crimp terminal housings. You can get 2 way from RS 360-5967 or Farnell 865-606

Thank You Thomas
They look like the type I need!
I am not being ungrateful but the price seem very expensive!!!
with just one housing coasting 63p and I guess the pins are extra to.
And I have never used them before so I donít know how much they charge on top for postage.

Maybe ití still a case of salvaging them out of old computes
Has any one got some lying around they could spare??
Many thanks
Paul

Jaycar do a non-insulated version. 25 pins for $4.25AUD. Part # HP1260.

I buy 40way header sockets from www.Altronics.com.au
Part # P5390. Similar, but you lose a socket when you cut them up. $1.70AUD per strip of 40

These PCB mountable sockets might be suitable, and seem to be easy to cut into single sockets.
Just need some heatshrink over the pin to wire connection.

I found these from JST (and thought they were good value until I found the price is EACH, not per pack of 10...). They would probably work with standard headers as well as their own test pins.

Gordon, that RS link doesn't work. It's somehow tied to your account or session so when I click on it I get:

Thanks Rob, links to the RS website always seem to be troublesome for me and end up umpteen characters long.

Even my shortcut to RS in favourites doesn't work properly!

The part number is 251-8200, and they don't seem to be expensive at 33p for a strip of five.
