Topic: Uno with screw terminals (Read 2 times) previous topic - next topic

Terry, I was considering those boards but the spacing of the holes doesn't seem to accomodate the screw terminals, .1in vs 3.5mm.


There ARE various screw terminal blocks with .1 Inch spacing available.  Some of us with that Western Mentality used to think that everything was in Inches  :~  or even in 64ths of an inch...

Digikey would have some I'm sure...

Unless you are using the features of the USB chip what about the nano on its terminal board like I showed?  The combo is smaller than the UNO and has more inputs.


I already have the uno and don't want to buy another arduino. I actually almost bought that one in the first place because of its size but liked that the uno has boxes already made for it. Problem now that I didn't see when I started was how to get the screw terminals to fit in the box as well.

thanks Terry, I just ordered some from digikey. I hadnt thought of them but should have. Its been about 10yrs since I have ordered from them. I was too busy looking at all the arduino sites. I just need to get the board ordered now.

For the archives, since engrjhnsn already solved this for himself: perhaps you could buy an original (unassembled) two-piece screwshield kit, and mount the components on the opposite sides of the boards? (Which should result in the wings facing inward instead of outward).
