This PCB allows connections to be made to a breadboard via screw terminals. This is great for quickly and easily connecting stranded wires, wires with ferrules, or oversized wires to breadboards for prototyping. This board also allows for a set of wires to be quickly transferred from one breadboard to another.
I often find devices I need to connect into my prototype circuits that have wires which are stranded, oversized, or have other attributes that make them difficult to attach to a breadboard. This device solves that issue.
This breakout board will connect to all standard breadboards allowing for 12 connections to the main board as well as four power rail connections.
The screw terminals on this board work with wires from 26 AWG - 14 AWG.
These boards come with the screw terminals already soldered to the board, however the headers (which are included) will still need to be soldered on.
By not shipping these breakout board with the headers already soldered on they are able to work with a larger variety of breadboards as not all breadboards have the same layout.
If your breadboard doesn't have power rails you can leave off header connections 1-4 and the breakout board will still be able to connect to your board.
If your breadboard does have power rails then you need to determine what layout your board uses. Most breadboards have one of two main hole patterns:
In-line - With this hole pattern the holes on the power rails and the main breadboard are directly across from each other.
Staggered - With this hole pattern the holes on the power rails are between the holes on the main breadboard.
To allow the breakout board to be used with both types of breadboard there are two sets of holes that headers 1-4 can be soldered into. When using an in-line breadboard you will need to solder headers 1-4 into the holes marked by a set of two dots. When using a staggered breadboard you will need to solder headers 1-4 into the holes marked by a set of three dots.
