4-pin right angle Hirose connectors
« on: December 14, 2017, 04:37:53 PM »
Does anyone know of a place selling right angle 4-pin Hirose connectors for a reasonable price?  All I see them for is around $15/ea.  I'm fine with doing the custom work myself, I just need the right angle connectors. I think the straight ones cost me around $3...

The right angle ones suck and are not made by Hirose. Twist too hard and they can easily "pop" out of place, causing the internal leads to break, or worse, short.

OK, this is bad.  But, but , but...isn't this a matter of how they're soldered? The room on the sides of the machines is precious space, and I just damaged a custom cable because it sticks out to far and gets bent in the bag.  Is there another alternative?

Not really. First of all, the solder pins are tiny and very close together.

More importantly, the problem with aftermarket right angle connectors is how they 'lock' into the 3, 6, 9, or 12 o'clock positions. It's not a very robust mechanical tab and if you twist it enough, it will move to another position when it isn't supposed to. This twists the internal wires and causes the problems.

Wow, that's messed up!  I purchased (on ebay) a straight , after market 4-pin "hirose" connector that a friend that does this type of work all the time, made me a cable with.  It works great, but it's bending because of the length of it is causing it to smush against the side of my bag.  The cable itself is amazing, but a right angle would be ideal.  He solders 12-pin hirose connectors, so I guess the 4-pin was like nothing for him.  Not sure what else to do  :shrug:
