I have in my possession two 2x15A roboclaws w/ silk displaying "V5E". The latest datasheet I've been able to find from basicmicro is v2.2 dated 2016. On this datasheet (in words), pictures from this datasheet, and a picture from pololu points us towards the 2 pin fan connector being of the Hirose DF13 variety. In reality, this is not correct for V5E which leads me to believe all of this published information is pretty much deprecated following roboclaw V5D.
I am now wondering which connector family I need to buy to support anything >=V5E.
Anyone have any info here? It would be very much appreciated if you did. Thanks for the time. -daniel
You are mostly correct. Some of the units V5D and V5E have different connectors on them(white vs brown color). The brown color connectors are Hirose(https://www.digikey.com/products/en?keywords=h2191-nd). The white connectors are Amphenol IIRC, 10114829-11102LF-ND.
Please email email@example.com to confirm this. The manual will be updated to indicate it could be either connector(depending on the color). We use both so if one is out of stock for a long time we have an alternative.
