Crimping a Hirose HR10 connector?

5 posts in this topic

I just soldered my first HiRose HR10 connector. It is the crimp style. How I do I use the crimp? Do I just crimp it over the wire and then use the set screw to mash it some more?

Thank you.

yes, but take care to find the right position, or else the grub screw wont hit the crimp...

I "soft assemble" the connector and stick the point of a silver Sharpie pin through the set screw hole to mark the position of the brass crimp. Make certain to take care to keep the finished crimp as round as possible so it fits into the shell.  The brass is very malleable and mistakes can be corrected with the gentle use of gas pliers; regular old "get them at the 7-11" pliers.
