BoB DSUB Breakout Boards

DSUB connectors are one of the most common connectors out there, yet it can be difficult to find breakout boards suitable for use with CNC systems.

DSUB 15HD BoB Board

Our DSUB BoBs not only make it easy to probe every signal on the connectors, you can easily interrupt one or more signals for diagnostic purposes.

We currently offer the following DSUB BoBs:

DSUB 9

DSUB 9 BoBs are perfect for testing quadrature encoders, serial ports, MPGs, and other devices with only a few connections.

Note: Simply reverse the A and B ends for opposite connector genders.

DSUB 15 (low density)

Commonly used for encoders in Fagor CNC systems, such as 8010, 8020, 8025, 8030, 8040, 8050, 8055.

DSUB 15 HD (high density)

Most common as a 3-row DSUB connector for VGA video, 15HD connectors are also used for encoders in some servo systems, such as Syntec products.

DSUB 25

Used for general I/O in some CNC systems, such as Fagor products, as well as serial I/O for many older CNCs.
