If you are like me you might have ideas that you would like to change easily or not want to deal with taking something all the way apart to get a part or board out. Also don't make enough to have tons of extras so I am a scavenger of electronic parts and components. This also gives you the ability to run 8 different wires using low voltage and signal across cat5e.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Need and How To.
1.)Electronic Circuit Test Board Breadboard 82mm x 55mm x 8mm
2.)Project Box 66mm x 90mm
4.)Cat5E Punch Down Jack
5.) Hot Glue gun
6.) Double sided tape
-Take the project box and stick test board to the top with the double sided tape.
-Cut a short length of cat 5 or wire to use to plug 8 connections into board. you want it to loops out of the box and reach all the points of the testing board without straining the cable or pulling itself out.
-punch wires according to the punch down jack directions. Now strip 1 inch or so of the outer coating off the 8 wires on opposite end so the individual wires make a connection when placed in chosen holes.
-Unscrew the box and hot glue the punch down jack into box and put back together.
