Hi there!

I have a simple question:
What is the hole size on the VSPS pcb for the resistors? I plan to use component sockets for some of the resistors so swapping them would be done without soldering if needed.

Apologizes if this has been answered somewhere...

Thanks,
Mikko

Resistors are generally 0207 packages, 0.4" 10 mm pad-pad, 0.032" 0.8 mm drill, but through-hole plating means the actual hole diameter is a little less than that.

this is the solution i came up with for swapping out different value resistors.

Nice.
I plan to use that kind of terminal: Barrette tulipe - 1x40 points droite - Barrettes tulipe.
Your solution looks smarter. What's the name of these terminals?

they are just your common pin strips and headers. i'll try and dig the details out later but i posted the mouser item numbers earlier in the thread (i think)

That's what I have been using. Works fine.

just dug out the pin strips. the ones i used were Harwin M20

Mouser part#
5 way wire housing, 855-M20-1060500
40 way breakable pin strips, 855-M20-9734045
Crimp terminals, 855-M20-1180042

when using the pin strips you can remove 3 pins in between with pliers (they slide out easily) to keep things square.

I leave the extra pins in place and add extra receptacles to the plug.
That gives a stronger mechanical grip for plug to socket.

I also pair off two pins and two receptacles so that it has double the contact points for each signal.

An example was for the NX PCB.
The three pins @ 0.1" were standard. Two Signal Return and one Signal Hot.

I solder on a 6pin DIP Header, so that the PCB now had 4 Signal return receptacles amd two Signal Hot. The 6pins are on a grid 0.2" wide by 0.1" deep.

I used a star quad cable to a 6pin DIP plug. The two signal Hot wires went to the two middle pins.
The two Signal Return went to the two diametrically opposite Return pins. That gave my connection 4 sliding contact points for the Hot and 4 sliding contact points for the Return. And 4 more sliding contacts to increase the mechanical grip.

great Andrew but there are only two holes on the PCB :-) unless you slide the other pins up and off the board.

Not following this. Can you post some pictures?
