G’day all - I recently struggled finding the part numbers for the electrical parts needed to connect your tool head wires to the Taz 3-D printer wire bundle. I eventually had a win and wanted to share my adventure with fellow forum users (lulzbot is awesome but i couldn’t find this info on their website so - “WALLAH!” SUPPLEMENTATION!!")
After an intense, multi-dimensional google dive (based on the part number of the pins on the lulzbot heater cartridge https://www.lulzbot.com/store/parts/24v-40w-heater-cartridge-235mm), I found a website (https://itworks3d.com/product/molex-2-row-connector-lulzbot-tool-heads/) that actually listed all the housings, pins and female crimp terminals with specific part numbers!
I was then able to use those wonderful keywords (listed below) to punch in a specific order into the supplier website (https://www.digikey.com.au/en) without spending zillions of hours filtering an endless confusing list of very similar parts:
- The Housing: “Molex 2x8 double row connector housing” (Molex Part Number 22552161)
- The pins: Molex 0016020108 Digikey WM2565-ND (male)
- The female terminals: Molex 0016020097 Digikey wm2513-ND (Female))
