I just relized in the first post the reichelt alternatives are listed. But the reichelt product were not listed just the molex ones.
so i ordered a bunch of stuff the last days:
I replaced the mouser molex 8 pin and 2 pin connectors with reichelt series (they also have the molex ones , but the 2pin are not in stock right now)
They are not here yet i let you guys know if they will fit.
I could already test the snap in, but without the crimp contacts.
The reichelt series:
in the product catalog you will find the pcb mounts as well, i am too lazy to write everythign down here 🙂
I also ordered a meanwell psu, 12 V 6A, 80 W, 2,5mm, i didnt check polarity but i guess its plus inside, minus outside, if not i just cut them and resolder)
Additionally I ordere the reichelt micromodul series just to test if this will work too.
I tend to always use standard size parts, I do like the idea of those micro connects, but as you see right now, mouser is gone missing on those parts, and if your whole project depends on one tiny part which is very tedious to replace…
If space would allow it I would always pick the usual 2,54mm pitch stuff, cause then every manufacturer has a solution not just o,e but that is enough of the rant.
I think all parts will be here soon, then i will start the uiding process and keep you guys up wheather my replacements do work.
Oh and just a minor thing:
The 4148 SMD diode is way cheaper on reichelt.
1N 4148 SMD 2cent a piece, with mouser its 6 cent i think. in the end around 10 euros, so not a huge deal, just as a tip if someone ordes on both anyway.
Thanks for the ongoing support.
oh and a happy new year to everyone 🙂
