GP2Y0D340K IR Sensor Cable?

    I'm trying to connect a Sharp GP2Y0D340K IR Sensor to a solderless
    breadboard. The GP2Y0D340K module has 5 short pins spaced 0.1" apart.

    I tried connecting the module to a Molex KK Series 0.1" pitch header so
    I could add crimped pins, but the module's pins were too short and not
    thick enough to fit the header.

    I would like something similar to the special 3-pin cable for the Sharp
    GP2D120 IR Sensor.

    And if I can't find a header for the GP2Y0D340K, I will try
    wire-wrapping.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    These are JST connectors. You can get them from 'acroname.com'. I'm sure
    you can get them elsewhere as well, but acroname has them connected to
    wires. Not cheap, but not too bad.
