I'm currently playing around with some load cells in a wheatstone bridge - each cell has 3 wires (sub-1mm thickness). I want to mount these cells onto 2 separate pieces that can be spaced apart to allow them to fit under different sized objects more easily - so I want to connect the 6 wires on one piece over to the other, 30-60cm away.
I'm looking for a 'standard' connector of some kind that can carry 6 wires to connect one piece to the other, so I can mount a socket onto each piece. I'd like to just buy the wires with connectors already attached, and ideally the sockets will come in a form where I can easily attach the wires to them without having to have a custom board made up or require an expensive crimp tool (I'm not sure the load cell wires would be suitable for crimping anyway).
Any suggestions on common connector format that could work here?
