  • Did You Know? - Breakout Boards

    Mar

    Many Applied Motion drives use screw terminal connectors for easy wiring. But screw terminal connectors take up a lot of space, so most of our programmable drives use higher density “D-SUB” connectors, allowing for more compact designs. Drives with D-SUB connectors include the popular ST, SV, STAC and BLU models.

    D-SUB connectors are preferred by many OEMs because cable harnesses can be produced on automated equipment using the “crimp and poke” style mating connectors. Or you can hand solder wires to a “solder cup” style mating connector.
