Molex connectors


#1

Is there a link for the exact molex connectors required for this build? I'm wandering around newark.com and it's difficult to find the right connector without having pictures to compare it to.

Which terminals to go with these and do you recommend a crimping tool

Much obliged. You might want to add those into the revised bill of materials you're working on. Do they come with pins or are those separate?

Everyone who sees me using it tells me there are easier ones out there, though. I've just gotten used to it.

Yikes! We will have the BOM updated soon. It's just been changing so much that we keep putting it off. More soon!
