A handy cable to connect to arcade buttons without soldering - 1/4" and 3/16" quick connects!
This is a cable for arcade buttons! It features:
- 2x 1/4" right angle quick connect terminals
- 2x 3/16" right angle quick connect terminals
- 1x 4-pin JST XH connector, 2.5mm pitch so you can plug it into a typical 0.1" header
- Approx 10" long
*Note that the switch shown in the photo is for demonstrating how to connect the cable, the switch is NOT included. If you'd like a full Big Red Button kit, check out our other listing!
We wanted an easy single-cable solution for arcade buttons. We had these custom made for us, and the minimum order was a LOT, so we're making them available to everyone! For all your big red arcade button prototyping or production needs.
The terminals on the snap-action switches (aka microswitches) can be difficult to solder to, and easy to overheat. Quick connects make connecting to them easier, and the right angle quick connects make the overall button footprint as small as possible. The mating JST XH connector is readily available, but you can also just plug it into a typical 0.1" header if that's easier.
