Connectors for ArduPilot and other Boards

I have had a number of times when I have needed to make a custom cable for my set-up.

The problem was sorting out the Connectors.

It took some time and research before I got it right Size Wise.

So in the spirit of sharing here are some details on the main (2) sizes 1mm & 1.25mm Pitch.

Enjoy

Wed 14th August UPDATE


Have now found a Acceptable Price (£44.00) Crimping tool that will do both sizes.

It is Engineer INC. Japan. Model PA-09 - http://www.engineer.jp/en/products/pa09e.html

Other Crimping Tools to do a Wide Range Cost £100.00 +

You can buy it at -

I have tried it on both sizes and it works great but I think it's time I had my eyes tested again.

The 1mm pitch really needs a magnifying glass.
