Ammeter Connection

by mdelamere on Mon Feb 11, 2019 6:54 pm

Hi,
I bought 3 of your 0-9.99A ammeters, and want to connect them into my system - using my own wire harnesses. Can you please tell me the manufacturer name & part numbers for the crimp terminals and housings that I should use?

Thanks in advance,

We don't make those, and I'm afraid we don't have any specs for the connectors.

They're keyed rectangular wire housings, but that's all the information we have. Your best bet will be to check through the available options at Digikey:

Check the pitch (the distance between the pins) to narrow the list of options further, then look for similar keys in the product images.

Hi, Mike
RE: ANEMOMETER
I am a novice when it comes to electronics, so the Arduino board is intimidating--wiring table lamps, fine, replacing a wall light switch, probably, using pins and board, baffled. So my question: is there a straight wire diagram I can use to get windspeed out of the anemometer? No pins, no mysterious boards? I know that some anemometers somehow connect to bicycle speedometers, but I am guessing that that is something quite different. No simple plug-in module with a display?

The anemometer's output is an analog voltage between 0.4V and 2.0V. You can measure the voltage with a multimeter and convert the value to a wind speed on a calculator.

An Arduino does basically the same thing, just in a smaller box.
