Proper name of the connector types?

Post by ndpm » Fri Dec 12, 2008 3:09 pm

What is the official and correct name of the type of connector one would use to make cables with to connect to the RBBB/BBB male headers? I am talking about the kind provided with the servo cable. I scavenged connectors out of an old copy machine that hook up well, but I don't know what this type of connector is called.

Get Connectors from Logitech Mice

I have to admit I am surprised that no one has chimed on this to help figure it out.

Anyway, I did discover that if you can get a hold of some old/broken Logitech mice (probably some others too) and take them apart, you stand a good chance of finding an excellent 4 or 5 pin connector with about 3-4 feet of cable that attaches to a male header perfectly.

If you work at a company or school, your IT techs will likely be happy to give you some old mice, and be glad to be rid of them.
