I've got a pair of GM10 Solarbotics motors with very thin wires. I want to connect them to a breadboard - what's the best way of doing this? For now, I'll probably solder them to some connectors cut off the jumper wires I normally use, but was wondering if there are any better suggestions?
Take these: http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=111 or similar. Solder a wire to it and in the end of the wire, solder a jumper from the breadboard. Put the clips on the wires from the motor when breadboarding and you don’t have to desolder anything and risk damaging the motors
Ah, cheers. I may give
Ah, cheers. I may give that a go. Just soldered a pin to them for now.
I’ve used female connectors
I’ve used female connectors so that I could use patch wire or header connectors to connect to the motor and BB. (then finally to a proto board)
