    Hello guys,

    I am looking for an easy way of connecting panel-mounted D-Sub connector to CAN/USB converter. After couple of searches, I've realised that the most feasible solution would be to use D-Sub crimps (I only need 3 pins), however, I do not want to crimp the wires myself, therefore I want to ask: has anyone ever seen any leaded crimps on sale? Like this guy, just with a wire already in it. I've checked couple of the most popular electronics marketplaces but they don't seem to have anything like that to sell.

    Looking forward to your answers and thanks in advance!

    Regards,
    Sarunas

    If the pins are the right size, (pin-header size, 1mm I think), there are plenty of sellers of these on eBay:-

    I bought a few lots, F-F and M-F to cut up for my projects. The plastic insulation is a bit stiff, but otherwise they're OK.

    It's probably easier to find a cheap serial cable, cut off one end to whatever length you need, and cut the connector out of the molding. One knife, no soldering or crimping.

    Thanks for suggestions guys!

    Old Steve, I believe that jumper wires in this case would not be suitable. I'm looking for the crimps specifically for this sort of connector.

    AnalogKid, this sort of solution is okay for works in a lab, but if we consider serial production, that wouldn't be very feasible. That's why I'm looking for some sort of ready crimped wire, which could be just plugged into a connector and work's done.

    I had a bit of a mental blank when I posted, couldn't picture what a "D-sub" was. I saw the picture you linked to and it appeared to be for square pins. It came to me a few minutes later. :oops:

    Just re-checked that link... Yeah, it was actually my mistake, sorry! This picture should do better. If only I had those crimps with wires already in them.

    I found this leaded connector, which is Micro-D. Unfortunately, it seems that the market has not got any leaded D-Sub connectors to offer.

    I did a bit of a search myself, but the only one I found was a 15-pin D-Sub, (VGA). I assume you want 9-pin?

    Yes, 9-pin. Where did you find it? Can you please share the link with me?

    Interesting detail to leave out. The majority of pre-crimped leads on the market are surplus. New, unused, etc., but also from an uncontrollable source using unknown parts and having unpredictable long term supply. For a production environment, nothing can match the flexibility and control that comes from owning your own crimper.

    Sarunas,

    For real production, a harness or cable house ( job shop ) is the answer.

    Depending on where you are, a connector manufacturer's sales office should be able to refer you to some suitable sources. Local industrial directories, or electronics distributors might also help you find a vendor.

    Some electronic component distributors do "value added" work like this.
