Q. Can you confirm this part is functionally and dimensionally identical to the out-of-stock part you recommend for PICAXE download circuits? Thanks
A. Hi Gareth. Thank you for your question. Yes this PCB jack socket is the same as the ones used in the picaxe boards.

Q. Can this be used with the picaxe USB download cable?
A. Thank you for your question. A stereo version is required - 20-5121 is the best one to use as standard.


15 February 2012 Question by: Grim | Product code: 20-0137
Q. Can we assume that the switched contacts are normally closed, and the connection between (e.g.) pins D and F is made open when a plug is inserted?
A. Hi Grim, thanks for your question. You are right in thinking the switched contacts are normally closed. The input is then directed/diverted to the headphones (or whatever is attached) . In normal (nothing inserted) conditions the signal just passes through from D to F (and E to G). There is a diagram of the connection arrangement at https://www.rapidonline.com/3-5mm-Stereo-PCB-Socket-20-0137#techSpecs
