These premium jumper wires are stranded 26 awg wires with female terminations on one end and male terminations on the other end, for use with 0.1" (2.54 mm) male headers. These 12" (30 cm) wires have purple insulation and ship in packs of 10.
These premium jumper wires, which are equivalent to our wires with pre-crimped terminals with 1×1 crimp connector housings already attached, are great for making quick and easy prototyping connections. They are available in three lengths—3" (7.5 cm), 6" (15 cm) and 12" (30 cm)—and in ten colors:
These are the same colors as those used on resistor color codes and rainbow ribbon cable. We offer the 6" and 12" cables as monochromatic 10-packs (in the color of your choosing) and rainbow-assortment 50-packs (five pieces of each color). The 3" cables are only available as rainbow-assortment 50-packs. For longer cables, see our wires with pre-crimped terminals, which are available in lengths of 3", 6", 12", 24", 36", and 60".
These wires can be purchased with male terminations on both ends, female terminations on both ends, or one male and one female termination. These terminations are designed for use with 0.1" (2.54 mm) male headers and female headers, solderless breadboards, and prototyping PCBs. Close-up pictures of the male and female terminations are shown below.
