I have a narrow component with two rows of pins. The pins have the right pitch but the rows are too close together to be placed over the non-conducting gap between E and F rows of the breadboard. The distance between rows is only 3.2 mm. There are 5 positions on each side (1 pin, a gap, and then 3 more pins). It is Axicom minature relay.
What is the best, recommended practice to mount such a component? I consider:
- Solder extensions to the relay contacts. This would be a rather delicate work with the 2.54 mm spacing.
- Bend the pins, but they may get too short and do not go into the board deep enough.
- Try to disassemble the breadbord and have the two rows separated. I would like to know if possible at all before ripping it apart.
- Try some connector (which one?).
- Order another component for prototyping. But we will use this one in production.
Drawing of the relay I need to integrate can be found here.
Any other ideas? I would like to know how it is typically done with such components.
