Ever since PX4 and DroneCode came up with their connector pinout standards. I see more and more sensors and devices off the shelf adopting the same This is particularly the JST-GH and Dupont connectors
I like to make my own cable harnesses (So that the cabling is clean and easier to debug) but I'm having trouble finding cheap ways to do my own harnesses now. Does anyone know how to crimp JST-GH connectors cheaply? Here is my setup (which I don't like just because of how expensive it is):
Dupont: Pins and housings $10 Amazon link
Crimper PA-09 $40
I find that it's easy to buy SN-28B style crimpers for DuPont connectors but those are garbage. I do not recommend. I will try the IWISS $16 and report back.
JST-GH: Pins, only one kind $0.11 each Digikey Link
Crimper YRS-1590 $1239 Digikey link
This crimper is awesome, it works like a machine gun, you load a reel of pins and you can go to town crimping left and right. But it's soo expensive! Anyone know of better options?
