General Description

These breakout boards bring all 9 pins plus shield of a DB9 connector out to screw terminal blocks for easy connection and prototyping work. 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.

The small footprint 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.

These breakout boards are available with both male and female connectors. The BRKSD9M has a male connector, and the BRKSD9F has a female connector.

These break out boards are perfect production applications as well as for experimentation and prototype work. They are well-suited for work with RS-232 serial ports, I/O cards, and any other device that uses a DB-9 connector. It can be helpful in making MODBUS connections. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", or "interface module".

Technically, the correct term for a DB9 connector is DE9, but that term is not commonly used.

  • 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).
