    Eagle part for 5mm PCB terminal block

    g2c

      Hello,

       

      I am new to Eagle and already spen a day with no result. I am looking for a library part which seems inexistent. I need a part equivallent to http://www.futurlec.com/Connectors/PCBT3.shtml. The closest i found is a wago with 5.08mm pitch

       

      Thanks in advance for your help

          With only 3 pins a 5mm part is equivalent to 0.2"

          It is part of the learning curve to make your own lib parts.

          One of the reasons is you should verify every lib part you use. This

          takes about as long as making a part from scratch and you save the time

          looking for the part.

              Thanks Paul

               

              Well, The parts i'll be using are end stackable .2" will fast accumulate to impractical insertion

               

              I will be happy to design my own parts but honestly this seems requiring a very advanced level. Can you point me to a good and correct tutorial for doing this?

              Hi Guy.

               

              What you need, could that be con-wago-508? The package W237-3E has 5mm from center to center of the pins.

                  Thanks Mogens, It seems that it's .2" pitch as on a .05' gride it takes 4 places. Am i mistaking?

                      Hi Guy.

                       

                      I will try to take you a small trip into a new board. Start eagle, then file-new board - find view in top menu - click grid.

                      Change inch to mm - use only 1.0 and set grid on. Now ADD con-wago-508 and take w237-3E, place it on the grid and count the lines

                      between two pins. Then you can go back to 1.27mm grid.

                      And one more. Have you found some good stuff i the installation folder of Eagle, the folder DOC have the manual and tutorial in more

                      language. They are your helping hand.

                      Good luck.

                          Thanks Mogens

                           

                          I did as you said. With the 1mm grid one can see that holes are more than 5 mm apart, with 1.27 it's precisely 4 squares (as far as naked eye can see) so i am not sure what it was that you meant that i discover in this little trip

                           

                          Thanks for the advice to consult the Eagle doc folder. Honestly it did not came to my mind and i'll start with it.

                           

                          ... and i have never been to Denmark (except in Andersen's stories) though i'd very much love too.

                        Mogens - It is indeed the con-wago-508 library for 0.2" pitch pcb mount screw terminal block !!

                         

                        Thanks.
