What is the Pitch on a Connector?
The pitch of a connector is the distance measured from the center of one pin to the center of the next pin. It is very important to know the pitch of a connector because otherwise it will not be compatible with the cable or wire you are trying to connect. It can be confusing to match a connector with the other half because nomenclature and standards get mixed and matched.
Here are a couple of the most common pitches in metric and standard units:
- 0.1 inches = 2.54mm (standard for breadboards)
- 0.05 inches = 1.27mm
There are many other pitches out there that are larger and smaller:
Quadrangle Pitch Connector Support
Quadrangle strives to support all popular connectors seen on various components and peripherals throughout industry. We are always adding new connectors and crimps/terminals. In some cases we can support new connectors on existing tooling and equipment. In order to confirm this, we may need to purchase sample crimp in REEL FORM (for semi-automated equipment) to test them. Quadrangle will gladly do this, however, if you would like to Expedite This Process — customers are always welcome to inquire with Quadrangle Engineers first (with a spec sheet), and upon Engineer confirming, the customer can supply the crimps to us for testing (REEL FORM ONLY). Customer Supplied Material is often the more efficient and quicker way to confirm if we can support the new connector series for your upcoming cable needs.
