We can get 315 units in Australia from Pololu. If you order today, we can dispatch this stock between Mar 01, 2021 - Mar 08, 2021.

This is a breakout board for a 6-pin male JST SH-type connector that provides access to each pin on a row of 0.1″-pitch through holes, making it compatible with standard solderless breadboards. The through-holes work with standard 0.1″ (2.54 mm) male headers and 0.1″ female headers, which are available separately.

This board can be used with our Micro Metal Gearmotor Encoder with top-entry connector or with side-entry connector, along with a female-female JST SH-style cable (available in 10 cm, 16 cm, 25 cm, 40 cm, and 63 cm lengths). When used this way, the breakout provides convenient access to the motor and encoder pins on a breadboard, and the pins are labeled on the board’s bottom silkscreen with this application in mind.

Alternatively, this board can serve as a general-purpose breakout for other applications; for example, a pair of connector breakouts with a female-female cable could be used as a removable general-purpose interconnect between different parts of a modular system.

Details for item #4770

This item is a single individually-packaged board with a top-entry connector that is fully tested. Alternatively, you can get a 3-pack of boards with top-entry connectors that have not been electrically tested and are offered at a discounted price to reflect this.

We also offer a version with a side-entry connector, either individually packaged or in a 3-pack and untested.

Compatible cables

We have a variety of cables that work with this breakout board.

Twisted female-female cables with female JST SH-style connectors on both ends are available in five lengths:

  • 10 cm (4″)
  • 16 cm (6.3″)
  • 25 cm (10″)
  • 40 cm (16″)
  • 63 cm (25″)

Single-ended cables, with a female JST SH-style connector on one end and unterminated wires on the other end, are available in three cable lengths:

  • 12 cm (4.5″)
  • 30 cm (12″)
  • 75 cm (30″)

Use with Micro Metal Gearmotor Encoders

When used with our encoders and JST SH-style cables, the wire color scheme is as follows:

motor power (connects to one motor terminal)
motor power (connects to the other motor terminal)
encoder Vcc
encoder A output
encoder B output
encoder GND

For more information on how to use the encoders, see the encoder product pages.
