Hi,

I am looking for cheap yet high quality connectors. I figured since there is a large economy of scale behind standard 20 pin ATX connectors used on PCs for supplying power to the motherboard, that it would be a good choice.

Anyone know where I can get them cheaply?

Regards,

Alan To

IIRC the series is called minifit from molex... they are relatively cheap.

Writing code is like having sex.... make one little mistake, and you're supporting it for life.

Minifit Jr. to be exact. There are several second sources that make them too. Most dists should sell them, e.g. Farnell, RS Components, Digikey.

How many do you need?
Do you need pre-assebled cables?

Cvilux is a much cheaper alterntive to well know connector brands like Molex, Tyco asn Samtec.

Contact your local Cvilux distributor: http://www.cvilux.com/en/network...

Another cheap alternative is Taitek. They have a terrible website, only a small percentage of what they carry is shown in thier online catalog. Their printed catalog is better, but even if a connector is not in their printed catalg they can very often supply it anyway.
Contact them to ask about the requested connector. They might direct you to one of their local distributors: http://www.taitek.com/contact.asp
Taitek can also supply cheap pre-assembled wire harness to customer specifications. But depending on where you live it has to go through their distributor.

Taitek is usually has a standard MOQ of 1000 units for most parts, unless you can find a ditributor who stock the conector you want.
MOQ from Cvilux is often lower - in the hundreds, depending on package size of the connector you want.
