I want to design a case for a Arduino Nano which has multiple sockets for plugs built in. So the sockets are wired internally in the case and i than can just plug my plugs into them. This is because i have a relatively complex wiring on a project i just want to simpliyfy (well... sort of).
So my question is, what are the best sockets and plugs (i just need 4-pin, fortunatly) for building into a case?
They don't need to be water resistant.
Either glueing or screwing them onto the case is fine.
maby this site can help: http://frontx.com/
there is connector and wires.
The first thing that comes to my mind when i read 4 pins is.. s-video connectors?
Maybe you could use something like thishttps://www.ebay.com/itm/NANO-IO-Expansion-Screw-Terminal-Adapter-Shield-Board-For-Arduino-V3-0-AVR/272991595547?epid=23029367088&hash=item3f8f912c1b:g:gMcAAOSwEVZaUGYa
Chinese manufactured Arduino Nano breakout boards are good for this. You just need Dupont connectors to hook everything up.
Hu! I should have thought to look for something like that. I have a nano that i never use because its faff to work out work out which pin is which.
Too ebay! :)
I guess you already considered normal pin headers/sockets. There are Dupont and Molex plugs and sockets that match those. IDC connectors/ribbon cable is another option. 4-pole audio plugs and jacks is yet another way to go. Or RJ-11/45 connectors that are used for telephony and network.
Is that what you meant?
There won't be "the right socket/plug"... In the end it always depends on what the connection is used for!
Therefore, for a good consultation you would first have to know what exactly goes over the single line (voltages, currents, cable lengths to the consumers and sensors)...
Simple JST connectors?! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JST_connector
I use PH series for most of my projects. My crimp tool costs €20. Not for industrial use but its ok for me
