A convenient way to plug your power supply into any circuit. 5.5x2.1mm female connector.
The pigtail is a good way to connect a power supply into your circuit, assuming your power supply has a 5.5x2.1mm connector. This is handy when wiring up sensors that require +12V. Instead of cutting the plug off your power supply, you can solder the pigtail cable into your circuit, and plug the power supply into it.
|Connector A||Power Jack 5.5 x 2.1mm (Female)|
|Connector B||2 Loose Wires|
|Cable Length||250 mm|
|Cable Gauge||20 AWG|
Note: The white wire is positive and the black wire is ground, assuming your power jack is center-positive. (All Phidgets products use center-positive power jacks).
All the power supplies that Phidgets sells are compatible with this pigtail.
The 1064 - PhidgetMotorControl HC dos not have a power jack. The pigtail is ideal for connecting any power supply that comes with a 5.5x2.1mm plug.
All the Phidgets power supplies would benefit from it.
The pigtail also makes it a lot easier to connect products that require an external power supply such as the proximity sensors and the 12V LED Strips and Modules.
