What type of connector is this? (Happ Optical Board)
« on: November 29, 2017, 10:51:36 pm »
I am kitbashing an Omega Race spinner to use an optical encoder and am pretty much done, I just need to wire up the encoder.  But I have no idea what type of connector is is (pin spacing, etc).  Anyone know what I should look for?  See attached pic (my board is green but looks almost identical).

From their website:

What are the pin-outs of the Optic Sensor pcb A052-1010-00 and A052-1011-00?

These all use the same Item # A052-1011-00 Optic Sensor Board. The connections are as follows.
Pin 1 - Output A
Pin 2 - +5V
Pin 3 - GND
Pin 4 - Output B

Connector kind of looks like http://www.mikesarcade.com/cgi-bin/store.pl?sku=KK4PIP

It does look like a Molex KK series, but it is probably a KK 254 (0.1") series connector, not a KK 396 (0.156") series connector.

Break out the calipers and measure from the tip of pin 1 to the tip of pin 4.

- 0.3" = 0.1" pitch = Molex KK 254 (or possibly a Dupont connector like the ones used on motherboards, cooling fans, breadboard jumpers, etc.)

- 0.468" = 0.156" pitch = Molex KK 396

Twisty Wrist has a KK 254 4-pin housing here (Molex P/N 22-01-2047) and female pins here that will work with Molex headers # 6373, 6410, or 171856.
