The SparkFun ATX Power Connector Breakout Kit - 12V/5V (4-pin) power connector breaks out the standard 4-pin computer peripheral port for your 12V and 5V devices!
Once you have chosen a power supply (whether it be an ATX power supply or the included 12V/5V wall adapter), you're ready to give your project some life! This kit has everything you need to solder together an ATX breakout and screw terminals for powering your project directly or pumping power into a breadboard.
ATX power supplies usually have a number of power connectors available to power components for a desktop computer. One of these connectors is the 4-pin power connector, which is intended to power 12V and 5V computer peripherals (such as disk drives).
Since this product is a kit, assembly and basic knowledge of soldering will be required. The ATX power connector breakout does not come pre-assembled. Only the pin next to 5 V is grounded. The pin next to 12 V is not connected (NC).
Please refer to the picture of the bottom of the unit for more information. The AC cable for this is included and works with 100-240 VAC inputs via a 2-prong style plug.
