Topic: What kind of connector is this? (Read 464 times) previous topic - next topic

I recently purchased an h-bridge motor driver and I'm trying to determine what type of connector I need for the enable pins. Putting a wire in works but it just falls back out. I attached an image of the connector to this post. I looks like maybe a terminal connector but if so I'm not sure how to measure what size I would need. Any advice is appreciated.

They're just jumpers, connecting pairs of pins, not connectors for wires. While the jumper is on each pair of pins, that channel is enabled. If you want to control the enable from an external source, just remove the jumpers and connect a lead directly to the enable pins. (The jumpers just pull straight off.)

Thanks, you are right! They do just come off. Hmm, now I need to review the spec sheet... I was thinking there would only be a single pin not two.

The front pin is the 'enable' pin. The rear pin is connected to the 5V supply, so that when the jumper is in place the front pin is pulled high.
