    Hello,
    I'm working on a project where I want to use a setup of a Raspberry Pi and the X4M200 sensor. I'm not very experienced with this kind of setup and I'm running into a real beginners problem.
    I was thinking to connect the pins of the Raspberry Pi and the X4M200 and setup the uart interface. But I've noticed that the connectors are of different sizes. I think that the connector for the Raspberry Pi is called a dupont connector, but what do I need to connect to the X4M200? And are there also cables that can connect directly from the one size to the other?
    I'm sure it is a beginner question, but I was not able to figure it out.
    Thank you!

    Hi Charlie, Thank you for your response. Is this cable a smaller size than the connectors of the Raspberry Pi? Because the standard size really don't fit in the X4M200 and I'm looking for a solid connection without the need to modify the connector cables and without big (USB) plugs, so I can put it in a small box...
    Thank you,
    Peter
