I need to connect a power supply to a device. The power supply provides 24V on a 2-pin Molex Mini-Fit Jr. header. The device has a 9-pin female D-Sub connector as input of which 3 pins are GND and 3 pins 24V.
My idea would be to use a 6-conductor able and crimp three conductors together into a single terminal. The conductors would be 26 AWG each (cross-section area of 0.129 mm^2); for a total cross-section area of 0.387 mm^2. I would then use a 18-24 AWG crimp terminal; which should be OK if it was a single-conductor cable.
- Is this the recommended approach? If not, what would you advice?
- Should I be aware of any reliability issues? Can these be controlled or mitigated?
