Connection with GCA145

IMPORTANT NOTE !!!!!! Some users seem to know better, and solder wires directly to the pins or the pc-board.!
That is totally unacceptable !!
Wires will easily break off, and cause a lot of damage in many cases.
So use connectors !!!!!

This cable is a straight connection, 8 wires, so pin1 to pin1, pin2 to pin2, etc.
Two connectors PSK 254/8W are used with 16 PSK Pins.
This special plier will be sold for net price of € 20,00 if ordered together with complete kits. crimpzange.jpg
