I am a bit confused about using terminal blocks on breadboards.
Should I be even wanting to put terminal block on BB ?
Are terminal blocks only used on proto boards and soldered in ?
If t’blocks are ok on BB… which to use i.e which “pitch”
thanks in advance
I don’t see any reason to use terminal blocks on a breadboard. You could push the wire into the breadboard, so no need for terminal blocks. You could connect much larger wire gauge to a terminal block, but if you’re doing that you are likely exceeding the specs of the breadboard.
If you do decide you want them use 0.1 inch spaced pins.
I was coming around to that conclusion… just confirmed.
Just to clarify,
Screw Terminal Block: 2-Pin, 3.5 mm Pitch, Top Entry (4-Pack) ( POLOLU-2442)
does 3.5 mm refer to board pin spacing? There are also 2.5mm pitch.
… and what is spacing of BB pin-holes ?
2.5mm pitch is the same as a breadboard.
That’s what I was wanting to clear up. I searched high and low!!
Thanks again Stephen
