    Arrow Need a source for wire to circuit board connection

    Do any of you guys know where to buy the type of connector commonly found on circuit boards and crossovers that snaps together. In other words, one end has the wires in it and the other piece is soldered to the board. You then snap the wire end into the piece on the board. They are usually white in color. I've searched all over the net, but can not find them. Rat Shack and PE do not carry them that I can see.

    Mouser Electronics

    You'll have to do some searching at the link, or give them a call.

    AMP/Tyco make pin and socket connectors called Mate-N-Lock.
    On page 29 of this .pdf are 2,3,4,5,8 pin headers that look compatible with later SDA connections. The right column lists mating connectors.

    Search Tyco's web site with the part number then click the link underneath for product drawings.

    I checked Mouser and it looks like you got lucky with the minimum order quantity. Sometimes they have a minimum order of 50.

    Well, after all that I ended up adapting one out of a junk piece of gear. A big thanks again to you guys for your help and to Mr. Dremel for his wonderful little tool.

    What I wanted to and ended up doing was upgrading the wire from the output circuit board to the RCA outs from 24 gauge to 16 gauge on the Joilda cdp. The exsisting connector was too small to handle the larger gauge. I don't expect any sound improvement per se, it was just something I wanted to do.

    It's a Molex connector to most of the world, but the suggestion is solid, as AMP is one of the hardcore in regards to the professional cables industry. They manufacture easily 50% of the Telecom infrastructure.
