What connector is this Adafruit product using?

by cogliano on Wed Dec 18, 2019 10:07 am

The Adafruit lock style solenoid (https://www.adafruit.com/product/1512) appears to use a JST 2 pin type connector, but it is not the same dimensions as the standard JST connector used for Adafruit LiPo's and other items. The photo is a bit fuzzy, but you can see the comparison of the standard JST connector on the left and the solenoid's connector on the right. The solenoid connector appears a bit wider and has 2 notches above instead of one.

I'm looking for the appropriate mating connector to surface mount. The technical details show the dimensions of the solenoid but there is no mention of the connector used.

Thanks.

It appears to be a JST XH type connector, will try that one.

I think the thing that's confusing is that JST is a company, not a connector. Looking through their catalogue is absolutely overwhelming... soooo many connectors. I'm just starting to figure out this mess myself :)

Agreed.

Since my post Adafruit has released the JST PH and JST XH connector kits. I am interested in the 2 pin connectors but these kits have multiple pin connectors. The PH connector is 2.0 mm pitch while the XH connector is 2.54 mm / .1 inch pitch.

JST XH kit: https://www.adafruit.com/product/4423

I hope this is helpful!
