This one going out to all the makers and designers who use DIN railing in their builds. These adapter plates were recommended by a customer. It’s perfect for simplifying complex wiring. You connect an RJ-45 cable (a.k.a Ethernet) to this very PCB which can be DIN rail-mounted. Then, all 8 wires are broken out into terminal blocks, so you can connect and power your sensors, displays, microcontrollers, etc.
We have the DIN Rail RJ-45 to Terminal Block Adapter that comes with a Vertical (Straight) RJ45 Ethernet jack on one end and terminal blocks on the other, and we also have a DIN Rail RJ-45 to Terminal Block Adapter – Right Angle.
No soldering required! Just unscrew the terminal blocks and slide in your stranded or solid-core wire.
Note that these aren’t recommended for actual Ethernet traffic, especially long term…given that the twisted pairs are decidedly untwisted when they are on the PCB but for basic power/data distribution, RJ-45’s are great!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
