These are good quality 1×40 single row gold plated male headers that can be cut or snapped to the length required.
- Qty 1 – Header Male 1×40 Break-away Gold
KEY FEATURES OF HEADER MALE 1×40 BREAK-AWAY GOLD:
- 1×40 Male header with standard 2.54mm (0.1″) spacing
- Flash gold plated brass contacts and solder tails
The short side pins are designed to be soldered to a PCB. The long side male pins mate with solderless breadboards, solder proto boards, female headers such as on Arduino, Dupont style female breadboard jumpers and berg jumpers.
These 40-pin strips can be easily snapped or cut into whatever lengths of pins that are needed for the project by using pliers or diagonal cutters.
When soldering these headers onto a board, it is sometimes easiest if you insert the headers into a solderless breadboard or similar in order to hold the connectors aligned during the soldering process.
These headers have a gold flash coating to minimize risk of corrosion and improve conductivity. The flash gold plating does not interfere with the soldering of the header. If you are looking for an even higher quality header constructed of phosphor bronze that is selectively plated with a thicker gold plating on the contact with tin solder tails, checkout our Header Male 1×50 Selective Gold Break-away.
