Thonkiconn – 3.5mm Jack Sockets

£0.37£13.59 (Excl. VAT)

WQP518MA, PJ301M-12 AND PJ398SM produced by WQP are all functionally identical and interchangeable and known colloquially as Thonkiconns.

The only difference between the old PJ301M-12 and newer PJ398SM and WQP518MA is, the older one has a plastic semi circle round tab, and the latter has a metal rectangle tab, but the height of these two tabs are same.

Don’t forget to buy nuts and washers!

THONKICONN NEW – WQP518MA (aka PJ398SM and PJ301M-12)

Thonkiconn New Jack Datasheet

Thonkiconn-WQP518MA is an improved version of the original Thonkiconn with a more reliable bushing – the footprint is the same.

The only difference between the old and new is, the former has a plastic semi circle round tab, and the latter has a metal rectangle tab, but the height of these two tabs are same.

 GREEN STEREO THONKICONN

This is a stereo version of the Thonkiconn jack which replaces the switch with the sleeve signal connector. The body of the jack is very slightly wider than the mono Thonkiconn, otherwise the PCB footprint is the same.

The original Thonkiconn – vertical mount 3.5mm switching mono phone jack.

Thonkiconn Eagle v6 Library Part – thonkiconn.lbr

Thonkiconn Eagle v5.7+ Library Part – thonkiconn_eagle_v5.lbr

The mechanism is identical to the ‘Erthenvar’ jack type (PJ301BM), it’s primary purpose is as a direct replacement of the popular Kobiconn 3.5mm jack but with a 100% vertically integrated footprint, i.e. no perpendicular ground pin. A really great bonus of these parts is they fit neatly into breadboard/stripboard/veroboard.

All materials used are RoHS compliant.

NOTE: Please refer to the notes about the PCB HOLE in the Thonkiconn (PJ301m-12) Jack Datasheet.

It is advisable to drill a 3mm hole in the PCB directly under the jack barrel centre or avoid routing traces or ground plane in that area.
