This is a 50-pack of 12-pin single row machined round pin (Swiss style) gold plated male headers that can be cut to a shorter length if required. They are remnants from the standard 1×40 strips that have been cut down and offered at a steep discount compared to the full 1×40 strips while they last.
- Qty 50 – Header Machined Round Pin Male 1×12 Break-away Gold
KEY FEATURES OF HEADER MACHINED ROUND PIN MALE BREAK-AWAY GOLD:
- Machined round male pins with standard 2.54mm (0.1″) spacing
- Top pins are 0.6mm dia x 3mm long
- Bottom pins are 0.5mm dia x 4mm long
- Easy insertion into sockets including high quality machined round sockets.
- Will also insert into PCBs with holes too small to accommodate standard 0.25″ square header pins
- Gold plated
The shorter side pins are designed to be soldered into a PCB such as a SMD to DIP adapter. The long side male pins mate with machined round IC sockets or machined round break-away strips. They will also work in standard IC sockets and will also work in solderless breadboards and solder type proto boards.
Because the pins are smaller and shorter than a standard male header pin, they will not work for mating with a standard female header.
These 12-pin strips can be easily cut into whatever lengths of pins that are needed for the project by using pliers or diagonal cutters. Because the center barrel of the contact is fairly large where it passes though the plastic housing, some of the contact may be exposed on the end where the break occurs when snapped. This is not normally an issue and the contact will usually remain firmly in the plastic housing. If it is desired to minimize this, a sharp box knife can be used to cut between the pins. Be sure to use a suitable cutting mat beneath the pins when using this method.
When soldering these headers onto a board, it is easiest if you insert them into a socket, solderless breadboard or perf board in order to hold the connectors aligned during the soldering process.
