Converts from a 1x4 plug to a 2x4 plug. Use this cable if you want 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. Make sure the sensor allows the cable to be extended by 1 meter. Comes with two pieces of heatshrink to secure the connectors together. See also the AdaptCableKit.

with one row with 4 receptacles, all spaced 2.54 mm (0.100 inch) and male 2x4 plug with two rows with 4 pins, all spaced 2.54 mm (0.100 inch)
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.
