I want to build a small console with the Bourns PSL slide potentiometers (nothing big, it's a just-for-fun project). Unfortunately, I couldn't find the right connector on their website.

The datasheet doesn't seem to have the complete measurements (the bottom opening has no dimensions). I did search on their website but it looks like they only have spring loaded battery connectors.

So my question: Can anyone recommend a connector that fits the Bourns PSL?



Bottom of your datasheet page 2.enter image description here

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, but where can I get a matching housing for this connector? I can't seem to find the right one :/ \$\endgroup\$ – thomasguenzel Nov 7 '18 at 17:14
  • \$\begingroup\$ Which configuration do you have? \$\endgroup\$ – Robert Fay Nov 7 '18 at 18:42
  • \$\begingroup\$ Looking at the drawings and pictures it appears they are using JST headers so the 4 position would be a connector such as PHR-4 digikey.com/product-detail/en/jst-sales-america-inc/PHR-4/… \$\endgroup\$ – Robert Fay Nov 7 '18 at 18:48
  • \$\begingroup\$ I've got Configuration 1, I'll buy a few of the ones you specified, seems like they could fit! Thanks!! :) \$\endgroup\$ – thomasguenzel Nov 8 '18 at 19:03
