Pixhawk 2 connection to UBlox M8N


I have a couple of M8N modules that I would like to attach to the Pixhawk 2. Do I need to change the connectors on the GPS modules to male DF13 and then plug the supplied Pixhawk cables into that? I read somewhere that old PH1 modules can be used on PH2 so I’m either missing something or need to do some crimping…

Thanks, Tim

You need to do some crimping. The kind of connectors in PH1/2 are different and incompatible.

Thanks Sunit. Crimping it is. :slight_smile:

Can someone post a link to the actual connector family used on the Pixhawk-2 please? e.g. Digikey/Mouser/Farnell

@Arbutus The pinouts/specs are available here: http://www.proficnc.com/index.php?controller=attachment&id_attachment=5 The connectors are all JST-GH http://www.digikey.com/products/en/connectors-interconnects/rectangular-connectors-housings/319?k=jst+gh&k=&pkeyword=jst+gh&s=2395&FV=ffe0013f&mnonly=0&newproducts=0&ColumnSort=0&page=1&stock=1&quantity=0&ptm=0&fid=0&pageSize=25 there are also a number of people providing converter cables from DF13->JST-GH
