For the first time I am working a project that requires sensors and and electrical devices to be connected at distances of 6 feet or less but have been having trouble choosing the connectors I want to use.
So, it would be great if anyone could suggest some connector part numbers for the following situations. If possible please list the manufacturer's male, female and pin(if needed) number
1.) pure data eg, I2C, 1wire, etc for 6ft distances (think sensors)
2.) Power and Data on the same connector. Think I2C bus board, where the Arduino sends signal and a PSU supplies power....then both power and signal run out to several I2C devices using a single data/power connector.... maximum power somewhere around a large PC fan or relay that can switch 120AC.
3.) pure power 3.3-15 volts. again max load small motor or relay.
The power connectors may experience some non-condensing but relatively high humidity. The pure data connections may get slightly most...Both will experience temperatures at between 80-100F. Think Rain Forest room at the Zoo.
I was thinking a shrouded series with 2-6 pin models would work well for the first two and a screw series would work well for the power. I would like the data connector/wires to look presentable eg ribbon or RJ11/45 cable.
