Omega 2 - distance between 2 pins
I want to put my Omega 2 on a circuit board, so what is the distance between 2 Pins ? I ordered a circuit board with 2,54 mm but this is not the correct size. In the pdf documentation I found something with "Pitch Type" 2.0 does it mean 2.0 mm distance between the Pins ?
Best Regards from Germany
The dimensions and geometry of the Omega2
"DIMENSION IN MM UNLESS NOTED"
Thanks for your answer
Now I have to find a solution, using a lets call it "non standard 2.0 mm" circuit board or using an adapter like this
Or is there a small official adapter/holder for a 2.54 mm pitch available ?
Common term is called pin pitch or B.S.C. (Basic Spacing between Centers.)
It's about the pin center to pin center distance.
It's not about how far the distance the empty space (the air gap) is in between two pins.
In the case of Omega2, it's 2mm pitch.
If you search the forum, you'll find several solutions such as buying the 2mm pin socket from fleabay.
IMHO, if you only need to access few pins just for your own project need and if it's a permanent setup (i.e., not unplug and re-plug repeatedly), you can get away by using improvised solution such as wire-wrap IC (long leads) bent pins.
Here you are another one (I haven't tried it yet):

The Mini Dock is an official adapter/holder (and more...)
Its a little bit difficult to search or to explain in an other language if you dont know the "official wording" so sorry for that. The german word is "Lochrasterabstand" (maybe helpful for other germany using google)
thx 4 the link
The Mini Dock is no solution for my project because I need the LAN and GPIO pins.
For playing around I already have the Expansion Dock
finally thx to all
