I have a ratcheting crimper that is supposedly decent for making servo-type connectors.  I'm wondering if anyone could tell me the actual name of the crimp pins and housings to make servo-type connections.  Ideally I'd like to be able to just purchase a lot from ebay or something if available.

When researching online I found many different names, but they were usually for a particular manufacturer's connector (which sometimes seem to be keyed certain ways.)  I'm not trying to match a certain manufacturer, just make connectors that can connect to the headers I place on my boards (and keep the wire mess down.)

Is there a generic name for the crimp pins & housings for this type of thing?  I know I found a bunch of "DuPont" labeled things on ebay but I wasn't sure if that's right.


Thanks

What size pins and what spacing? DipMicro has some connectors and shells for sale that might be what you need.

Dupont style connectors are compatible with those on the Arduino boards if that's of any help?
