Wire and Servo Connectors
November 21, 2012
I am currently am ordering parts for robot #2. As robot #1 is a nest of wiring, this time I want to use cables that have 2 or 3 conductors and use the connectors normally used on servos.
This has leads to two questions which are:
Is there some reason to choose "twisted" wires (2 or 3 wires wrapped around each other) over flat ribbons (2 or 3 wires side by side)?
Is there a reason the connectors from Pololu are so cheap? They want 69 cents for 25 connectors while Digi-Key and Jameco want around $10? I am looking at the Molex 1, 2, and 3 pin housing with 0.1 spacing.
Thanks for your help,
