General Description

This breakout board brings all 6 pins of its 6P6C modular jack out to screw terminal blocks for easy connection and prototyping work. Each pin is also brought to solder pads (5 per line) at 0.1" spacing, allowing easy addition of standard pin headers. Please note that the breakout boards are manufactured with a connection between each connector pin and the corresponding terminal block position; no soldering of any type is necessary. The solder pads simply provide an area for making optional connections to additional headers or other components.

This break out board is perfect for experimentation and prototype work, as well as for use in the educational laboratory. It is well-suited for work with serial ports, data acquisition equipment, telephone lines, and any other device that uses a 6P6C connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", "terminator", or "interface module".

The 6P6C designation on the modular jack stands for 6-Position, 6-Conductor, meaning it will accept telephone connectors commonly referred to as RJ11, RJ12, and RJ14.

Connector Style

These breakout boards are available with either a Right Angle connector or a Straight ("Vertical") connector. The terms Right Angle and Straight refer to the connector itself, NOT the relationship of the mating cable to the plane of the PCB. In fact, the cable mating to a Right Angle connector is parallel to the PCB, while the cable mating to a Straight connector is perpendicular to the PCB. These are pictured below:

Mounting Options

These products are available in two different mounting variants. Product numbers ending with -DIN come with DIN clips already installed and ready to snap onto 35mm or 32mm DIN rail. Product numbers ending with -FT have stick-on rubber feet installed on the bottom side, allowing for benchtop use or panel mounting. For panel mounting, we suggest 1/4" nylon standoffs under the mounting holes, and #6 screws.
