This cable is designed to work with our Micro Metal Gearmotor Encoders with top-entry connector and with side-entry connector. It consists of six 28 AWG color-coded wires that are terminated on one end by a female JST SH-type connector.

The other ends of the wires are unterminated and can be cut to match the length of your application. You can use our male or female crimp pins and crimp connector housings to make a connector for the unterminated end of the cable that is compatible with standard solderless breadboards, perfboards, 0.1″ male headers, and 0.1″ female headers.

Use with Micro Metal Gearmotor Encoders

When used with our encoders, the wire color scheme is as follows:

Color     Function
Red     motor power (connects to one motor terminal)
Black     motor power (connects to the other motor terminal)
Blue     encoder Vcc
Yellow     encoder A output
encoder B output
Green     encoder GND

For more information on how to use the encoders, see the encoder product pages.
