Introduction: D-Sub Test-Adapters (design Idea)
I often have to test instruments with D-Sub connectors for power and signals. Instead of soldering for each a new test-cable, I made a set of test-adapters presented here.
Step 1: Get Material Required
- Prototyping board RE224 for 9 and 15 pin connectors
- Prototyping board RE224 for 25 connectors Image 4
Both from Roth-Elektronik are available with SRBP-paper FR2 or Epoxy fibre-glass FR4 For Distributors see https://www.roth-elektronik.com/en/distributors
- Male and female D-Sub connectors for PCB 90 degree
- Male headers .1 inch pitch vertical and or horizontal as you wish
Step 2: Assembling
Divide the boards to get one for each type of connector.
Solder in the connectors and headers.
If needed, make solder bridges between the solder-eyes of the headers
