splicing wires into a harness
« on: January 04, 2012, 04:05:23 PM »
since my jungle king harness modification is missing the +12v, i need to splice in a wire to get the desired voltage to the switcher and the pcb. does anyone konw where i can get those connectors which cramp onto an existing wire and "steal" some of its power? if you have no idea what i'm talking about, have a look at the following picture :arrow:



here the two brown wires haven been sliced into the white and black wire to get ac voltage!

i have no ideas how those connectors are called, so any input would be great. :spaceace:
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

I use the ones like the top of this list, but they are red. I also ordered these from RS.
Take note about the wire diameters. I find these one's ideal, VERY easy to use, use some pliers to force the metal blade in while the wires are inside, then fold over and close the "lid", done.

cool andré, rs online = free shipping 8). thx a lot!!!

the german word is CRIMPSPLEISS - who came up with that? also managed to find them under the name SCHNELLKLEMMVERBINDER, but not at rs online (which means: shipping costs). i'll order some of those together with the GT10 potentiometer.

Many time you can find those also in your local car parts shop.
(if you have a local car parts shop ofcourse  ;D)

fastest delivery EVER: placed my order with rs online yesterday night at 21:52, received an email at 22:33 that my order has been processed and shipped :o. this morning, my doorbell rang and i received a nice little package containing two bags of slice connectors (50 each). what a great company with fabulous lightning-fast service!!!
