Here’s a picture of my project box with screen and rotary encoder for my LED project. About the last hurdle is to connect the external LED ground reference and LED data lines (2 wires total) to the board inside.
What’s a good connector that won’t short itself out or misconnect the pins while being inserted? It should be done with the power off anyway of course but if that doesn’t happen for some reason I’d rather not blow it up, and I’m afraid a standard 1/8" phono might allow a short or cross-circuit during insertion.
So, what’s a nice and elegant make/female connector I can use at the case bulkhead to run two wires inside? The only thing I have on hand is audio and weatherpack stuff!
For the USB connector I’m planning on using one of these:
Also, if you take a look at the attached picture, you might be impressed with how finely the TFT screen fits the box - I had to do that, because I couldn’t find a bezel. Do they make any kind of standard bezel for this type of screen? I couldn’t find one!
