General Description

Make connections quickly and reliably with this breakout board, which brings every pin of its DB78HD connectors out to screw terminals.

These breakout boards feature two DB78HD connectors (one male, one female) wired 1:1, with all pins connected to screw terminals for easy wiring connections. Having two connectors allows the board to be easily inserted "in-line" with an existing connection, allowing signals to pass through while being monitored, or to work with "daisy-chained" equipment.

This breakout board is perfect for production applications as well as experimentation and prototype work. It is helpful for working with I/O cards, Data Aquisition (DAQ) devices, and other devices that use a DB-78HD connector.

Technically, the correct term for a DB78HD connector is DD78, but that term is not commonly used.

We stock a variety of DB78HD breakout board styles and form factors. Please have a look here.

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.
