Maplins seem to have stopped stocking these, where can I get the crimp on 44 pin IDC connectors, so that I can make my own cables up?

Thanks

Ooooo .....have you got some 44 way ribbon cable you can spare Dave?
I`d swap for headers if I had some! :(

Maybe, Charlie.....

I have some 50-pin cables from Compaq slimline CD-ROM drives that have 50 pin IDC connectors with a pin blocked, so I can't use them as they are now, I need to change the headers.

How much cable are you looking for?

@ meega

Lighten up a bit, eh? Have you had a sense of humour by-pass or summat?

@ Charlie

The cable I have are 50 way and are approx 11" long, you could easily take the connectors off and split 6 cores off to get 44 way.

PM me with your address if you want a cable sent to you,

Just an update Dave. IDC Headers arrived, they have sent the wrong ones. I have recieved PCB mount type & not Crimp onto cable type. :evil: Will get back to u asap about this. :roll:

PCB mounting typed eh?

how many?

Kin Hell

4 of em Keith. These are PCB mounts with the Crimp type on other side. In essence, you`d end up with a cable attatched permanently to this kind of PCB mount. It`s not just pins to a board giving you pins for a 44way IDC header. :wink:
