JST Cable

JST Cable

  • JST cable has a wide variety of wire-to-board and wire-to-wire style connectors for your battery connections.
  • However, years of misinformation make identifying the correct JST plug connector and JST connector kit to use extremely difficult. For example, JST is the acronym of a company rather than an industry specification.
  • Japan Solderless Terminals (JST) Manufacturing Company is the leader in electrical cable connectors worldwide. Such is their prowess that their initials are synonymous with any white electric compact connector.

JST Cable Assemblies

As earlier mentioned, identifying the correct JST connector kit and JST plug connector can be tricky. For example, you will find the Molex PicoBlade connector selling as the 1.25mm JST GH series connector. There are plenty of service providers purporting to offer JST low-profile connector and side-entry connector cable solutions. However, you need to be vigilant of their legitimacy. Cloom is your reliable source for all information on inventory, pricing, and datasheets for every JST plug connector and JST connector kit you desire.

Regardless of your device, there is a JST cable connector ready to do the job. For example, the JST SM 2 pin connector works excellent for LED light strips.

Connector Soldering

Although most of the JST connectors cannot withstand the high temperatures of soldering, you can still use wave soldering to secure them in place. 

Some JST surface mount headers can withstand the high temperatures of reflow soldering.

Connector confusion on the Internet

When looking for a connector, it is advisable to use the J.S.T Co. website to check for the specifications and authenticity of the connector you desire. For example, you will find most 2.50mm connectors selling as 2.54 mm with a different manufacturer name.

How to distinguish Male JST Connector vs. Female JST Connector

A female pin header connector has one or more holes within a recess. The connector plug male has appendages with exposed conductors that can insert into the female connector.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can always use the Knipex set of crimping tools to attach your JST connectors. They come in a variety of sizes allowing you to use all types of wires. Additionally, it works for both plug connectors male and female.

Tinning your wires will make it easier to attach the connector. You can use tweezers to handle the wire while soldering.

You do not need a crimping tool for the JST SM connector. Furthermore, it features a high contact pressure and secure lock mechanism that does not require you to use any tools to secure the contacts. Additionally, they are part of the JST series of disconnectable connectors.

The PH series of JST connectors go by different names depending on the retailer. Here is an explanation on the naming of JST-PH2 connectors:

  • JST is the manufacturer’s name.
  •  PH refers to one of the connector series that the manufacturer makes.
  • The number 2  is in reference to the pitch at which it connects to a PCB.

No. JST also manufactures a series of memory connectors for computers, media, and telecommunications devices. For example, the SCZW series is what allows you to use a Nano SIM in your smartphone.

Top-entry connectors and side-entry connectors are the two types of vacuum connections. The top entry connector is a connection that goes on top like how you would think it should, while the bottom one has to be inverted so as not to interfere with your hose’s suction when pulling out dust or debris from cracks around baseboards for example.  Side entries come in handy if there isn’t enough space at either end of an opening because they can go along any edge and get into tight spaces without having to disassemble anything first!
