Wiring and connection issues….

  • Hi,
    Houston… We have a problem....
    As they say here ... "The first on the forehead ..."
    Well, I have a Dupont crimper, the model I've put before, and some terminals bought ... I've done some tests, I've never used a Dupont crimper before ... and when I've managed to do terminals, I've tried to go to those that come with the Duet plate .... but .... They are bigger than the Dupont connectors that I use ..... This causes me two questions:

    • The Duet board uses Dupont connectors. That is, the crimper that I have?
    • If they are not Dupont connectors. What kind of connectors are they?
    • If they are Dupont connectors. How big does it have to be?

  • administrators

    The connectors on the Duet are not Dupont, although Dupont connectors will fit them but are rather tight. They are Molex KK254 series, or compatible ones from JYK or (usually) Wurth. Your Dupont crimpers may work with them, if not then crimp tool HT-225D is inexpensive and widely available on eBay, Amazon etc.

  • What i need to "make" this connectors?
