Edge connectors for use with the Tortoise™

AN 6000-04

The TORTOISE™ Slow Motion Switch Machine has an industry standard spacing for the circuit board extending from the TORTOISE™ case. Matching circuit board edge connectors are available from a number of sources, and most larger electronic supply houses should be able to order them. Although our instructions indicate that Circuitron would have these available, we have decided not to stock these due to an unacceptably high price that we would have to charge.

The specifications for the edge connector are as follows:

0.156” center to center spacing
8 or 10 position (although the TORTOISE™ has only 8 positions on its circuit board, 10 position connectors are much easier to find.)
Single or Double sided connectors will work
Solder Lug style (small loop lugs extending from the connector for you to attach your wires to) is preferred over Printed circuit or wire wrap styles

One excellent source for these connectors is:
