General Description

These breakout boards feature two DB78HD connectors; this connector style has 4 rows of pins per connector. The two connectors (one male, one female) are wired 1:1 (pin 1 to pin 1), and all pins are brought out to screw terminals for easy connection. In addition, the shield (connector shell) is brought to a screw terminal as well. The two connectors allow the board to be easily inserted "in-line" with an existing connection, allowing signals to pass through while being monitored. It is also very convenient for "daisy-chaining" equipment.

This breakout board is perfect for production applications as well as experimentation and prototype work. It is well-suited for interfacing with data acquisition equipment or any other devices that use a DB-78 connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", "terminator", or "interface module".

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.
