This will save you a LOT of time if you are wanting to wire up a control panel from scratch to a keyboard encoder or similar. When you consider the cost of a packet of crimp connectors and around 10 metres of different coloured wiring it is also a very cost effective alternative.
Each kit comes with 8 different coloured medium gauge wires, all 100cm long, fitted with female quick disconnect plugs (or crimp connectors) at one end, along with 2 sets of 4 “daisy-chained” ground wires also fitted with female disconnect plugs.
To use them, simply slide the connector of the wires onto the microswitch terminals, then gather the wires together into a loom and cut them to length. They are now ready to be connected into whatever interface you intend them for. Add a few cable ties once it’s all done and you’ll have a very neat colour coded wiring loom.
The Ground Wires are in two sets and there are many different ways for them to be connected, so you can tailor them to suit your own setup. These wires are all black in colour for easy identification.
Available with either 2.8mm or 6.3mm connectors so you can mix and match them to suit all of the different types of microswitches commonly used on pushbuttons and joysticks.
As always, contact us before ordering if you’re not sure what wiring to use!
