This week’s Great Search (video) is the result of a social media query. Daniel’s 3D printer board lost one of the connectors that was used to connect to the Z stepper motor. It looks like two of the legs broke off so it’s not easy to solder them back in place.
It’s SMT, 4-pin, but of unknown brand and pitch.
Let’s find out what connector it is and see if we can find some replacement connectors on DigiKey!
You can find the selected part on DigiKey here.
