Topic: Tricks for connecting jumper wires to step motor driver board (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Hi there!

I'm working on a project involving some radio controlled step motors. I have some jumper wires, a ULN2003 Driver Board, a step motor, and an Arduino Uno. Is there any easy and reliable way to connect the jumper wires to the pins on the board? A solderless breadboard won't fit because of the rest of the components, and I don't want to solder it because I'll have to rewire it later. I've been using little rubber bands to hold the wires to the pins. It's worked decently, but it doesn't always hold that well. Any advice?



I use wire from a Cat5 cable with solid conductors as breadboard jumpers. A metre of it keeps me going a long time. In your circumstances I would solder my cheap jumper wire to the driver board and then I could plug the board into a breadboard.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.
