Allows you to make an adapter cable, see a few examples in the pict below. Twist or braid the wires to minimize noise and RF interference. Compatible with HackPlugs. Comes with two pieces of heatshrink to secure the connectors together. Use this cable kit if you want to connect a digital (I2C) sensor with a 2x4 plug to a USB-microDig running v7.3 or newer, which requires a 1x4 plug. Or use this kit to connect a digital (I2C) sensor with a 1x4 plug to a Wi-microDig running firmware v6.3 or older or a USB-microDig running v7.2 or older, which requires a 2x4 plug.
||0.20 m (7.9 inch), shielded|
||5 g (0.2 oz)|
||2x4 housing, 1x4 housing, 4 wires with 4 pins and 4 receptacles in 1x1 housings, all spaced 2.54 mm (0.100 inch)
Twist or braid the wires to minimize noise and RF interference.
Use one of the two heatshrink sections to secure the connectors together. Slide the heatshrink section over the female connector of the extension cable. Plug the male connector of the sensor into the female connector of the extension cable. Apply heat evenly to the heatshrink using a heatgun (a hairdryer will also work) to shrink the heatshrink section so that it tightly covers the two connectors (also see the picture on this page). The second heatshrink section is a spare for future use.
