Note: This harness will not establish proper SOCD cleaning for Hitbox on its own. You must use a control PCB that supports SOCD cleaning such as Brook's fighting board series.
The 5-Pin Hitbox Conversion Harness allows you to connect buttons to a standard JLF lever harness for HitBox style directional control.
From Joystick to HitBox
The conversion harness' male connector attaches to the female JST connector of an existing 5-Pin Wiring Harness, which is commonly used for attaching to a Sanwa or Seimitsu joystick lever. Each color signal wire represents a joystick direction, and single black ground wire works as a daisy chain. Each wire contains a .110" female connector, which installs into most common Japanese pushbuttons.
The harness also allows conversion to HitBox without committing to a stickless design - simply remove the harness and you can again utilize the standard joystick lever harness.
If you have considered moving to a stickless design such as the HitBox, and enjoy designing your own case and internals, you'll find this harness is a great choice to use with commonly available wiring.
