 Crimping connectors are a cheap and easy way to connect our electrical components. They are many types available. The most known are Dupont, Molex or the simple headers as found on arduino, etc. Crimping connectors are a cheap and easy way to connect our electrical components. They are many types available.

 The smoothieboard comes with a complet set of Dupont connectors for the stepper motors, endstops and thermistors. They require some dexterity to crimp and we strongly advise you to buy a cheap crimping tool on one of your favourite asian web store. It will last you a life and save a lot of time (and anger). The smoothieboard comes with a complet set of Dupont connectors for the stepper motors, endstops and thermistors.

 The so called aviation type connectors are cheap, provide a more solid connection than Crimped connectors showed above. They too are available in many configurations depending of the number of pins and pin size. Pin needs to be soldered, make sure you have a soldering iron .These connectors make great connectors for controller enclosures, see examples at the bottom of this page. The so called aviation type connectors are cheap, provide a more solid connection than Crimped connectors showed above.
