Power Pack Small End Connector
part is an NOS electronic component 5 position test connector.
The part has recessed brass connection sockets and bright silvered
solder tails encased in an insulating phenolic plastic material
of correct original matching green color.
Whether building your
own Powerpack from scratch or modifying an existing replica or kit,
this real 5pos test point connector will add authentic detail and
function if wired up to carry a current, adding 5 terminal points
that can be wired to whatever you like in your robot via the Powerpack.
A neat replacement for the big pc plug on the treadsection, or another
connection, buy 2 with combined shipping and experiment!
can further detail the connector if desired to make an exact replica
Viking small end connector, by carefully sawing off the lower portion
even with the bottom of the protruding side plug. Use of a jewelers
type thin blade x-acto razor saw is recommended. To do this you
would carefully saw halfway through each side stopping just at or
before the solder tail pins, then carefully scribe out the remaining
material with a pen knife and clean up with small micro file or
fine sandpaper. The area that is cut is the same as will face the
circuit board so only the edges will ever be visible. The part will
fit as is so this detail is optional for someone with reasonable
model building skills. I will supply extra detailing instructions
with illustrations along with the part. If running any kind of current
through the connector I would keep it at 12volts or less. A trickle
charger for batteries or a unique USB port replacement for instance.
Use of this part is at
the sole discretion of the buyer, I cannot in any way be held responsible
for any injury or damage you may incur while cutting, filing, sanding,
soldering or applying any electrical current to this or any part
connected to this or any part on your project. The instructions
I will supply do not include any wiring schematics, only drawings
and reference for cutting/trimming to match a Viking connector will
If you cut through the solder tail pins it's not my fault so take
your time and be careful!
This authentic small
end connector is the perfect compliment to your B9 robot's powerpack.
