Mini Hirose Distro

Recommended Posts

Just a quick showcase of an idea I've been toying with lately. I'm thinking of this as a sort of sub-distro and it will hang off the main BDS (or could easily be stand alone if need be). It's a pretty simple device; just a poly fuse on each output.

this is great, I made something similar using the switchcraft locking BDS jacks, but I've since switched over to hirose something like this is missing from my "oh shit" case

Very neat job!

Are the yellow components thermal fuses ?

Thanks!

 

Yep, they are 2A PTC Resettable Fuses, although I saw that in the data sheet that a Hirose connector is only rated at 2A anyway, so if you were at the stage of tripping one or more of those fuses, I guess the input connectors would be at or past their limit. I might change them out for smaller ones at some point, at least it gives some protection for a dead short!

So compact - very nice. Better than just being small it's also as flat as anything with a hirose could be and in the bag I like that.

Hi there!

Is there someone who by any chance has a library file for eagle PCB design of a 4pin female hirose socket?

Working on it... But takes up more time than expected, but I have to invest in these skills eventually.
