These breakout boards bring all 25 pins plus shield of a DB25 connector out to pluggable terminal blocks, allowing simple and quick
connections for prototypes or permanent installations.
They are well-suited for interfacing with controls, DAQ equipment, or other devices that use a DB25 connector.
This board features removable terminal blocks which can be unplugged and removed from their bases.
This provides convenience in several different contexts:
Terminal rows can be independently populated before being utilized in a larger connection system. This is particularly useful when working with equipment in difficult to reach locations.
Terminal rows can easily be swapped between equipment.
Terminal rows can be unplugged quickly and easily for debugging purposes.
Instead of replacing the entire board, individual terminal rows can be replaced when worn from extended use.
To utilize this board's plug-in feature, simply pull the terminal row away from its base, make the desired connections,
and plug the assembled piece back into its base. Terminals can also be populated while still plugged into their base.
For DB25 breakout boards that feature fixed terminals, see our complete line of DB25 Breakout Boards.
A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", "terminator", or "interface module".
This product is available with two different wire terminal options:
Spring Terminals (BRKLD25x-RG-x): Spring terminals allow connections to be made very quickly and efficiently.
Simply depress the actuator button on top of the terminal block, insert or remove the wire, and release the button.
Screwless spring connections can offer better results in environments where vibration could potentially loosen standard screw terminal connections.
Screw Terminals (BRKLD25x-RW-x): Each connection is made by turning a screw to tighten the wire in a terminal cage clamp.
