A male header is a type of electrical connector that consists of a row of pins or terminals that are designed to be inserted into a female connector, such as a socket or a header on a circuit board. Male headers are typically used to connect two electronic devices or circuits together or to connect a device to a power source.
Male headers are commonly used in a variety of applications, including prototyping circuits, connecting sensors and actuators to microcontrollers, and connecting PCBs (printed circuit boards) together. They are often used in conjunction with female headers, which are designed to receive the male pins.
- Can be manually broken for the length needed.
- Connector: Pin Header 2.54mm Pitch
- Connector type: Pin Strips Male
Male headers can be straight or angled, and they can have a variety of pin arrangements, such as single rows, double rows, or stacks of rows. They are typically made of a conductive material, such as brass or copper, and are coated with a protective material, such as gold or tin, to prevent corrosion.
To use a male header, you will need to insert the pins into a female connector, such as a socket or a header on a circuit board. The pins should make good electrical contact with the female connector, allowing electricity to flow between the two circuits.
