General Description

Make connections quickly and reliably with this breakout board, which brings every pin of its DB15 connector out to screw terminals. This product is available with both male and female connectors.

Slim Footprint Allows Tight Spacing

This product's 'slim' form factor means that the end profile of the breakout board is no wider than the connector itself. This can be important for installations where equipment contains multiple connectors which are spaced closely together. Even in this restricted space, these slim breakout boards can still be mounted directly to the equipment without using extension cables. Although the breakout board footprint is small, provision for strain reliefs has been included; holes drilled in the board provide anchor points where tie-wraps can be attached.

Captive Screw / Jack Screw Comparison

These breakout boards are perfect for field wiring tasks and are available in two different connector hardware options: captive screws or jack screws. The jack screws work well when mounting the breakout board to a wall box plate or thin panel that has a DSUB cutout; the captive screws provide a convenient connection to a mating connector that already has jack screws. See the Connector Hardware Options section below for more details.

Note: This product contains the 'standard density' DB15 connector with 2 rows of pins. See the DB15HD products for the 3-row 'high density' 15-pin DSUB connector.

This breakout board is perfect for production applications as well as experimentation and prototype work. It is helpful for working with I/O cards, CNC equipment, and other devices that use a DB-15 connector.

Technically, the correct term for a DB15 connector is DA15, but that term is not commonly used.

Need something different? We stock a variety of DB15 breakout board styles and form factors. Please have a look!

A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", "terminator", or "interface module".

  • Captive Screws are male #4-40 screws coming out of the face of the connector to accommodate direct mounting to a mating connector which contains jack screws (see picture below).
  • Jack Screws are the hex standoffs typically installed on DSUB connectors; they are threaded for #4-40 screws. Jack screws are perfect for connecting to a cable which has thumbscrews, for mounting to a wall plate, or for installing on a thin panel which has a DSUB cutout (see picture below).
