Headers & Edge Type Connectors

Headers and edge type connectors are a type of electrical connector used to make connections between printed circuit boards (PCBs) and other electronic devices. They are commonly used in a wide range of applications, including computers, consumer electronics, and industrial equipment.

Headers and edge type connectors typically consist of two or more rows of pins or contacts, which are inserted into corresponding sockets or holes on a PCB or other electronic device. They may include features such as polarization, locking mechanisms, or keying to ensure proper alignment and prevent accidental disconnection.

Headers and edge type connectors are available in a variety of configurations, with different pitch sizes, pin counts, and orientations. They may be straight or right-angled, and may be designed for surface mount or through-hole mounting.

One advantage of headers and edge type connectors is their ability to provide a reliable and secure connection between PCBs and other electronic devices. They are designed to maintain a stable connection, even when subjected to vibration or other environmental factors that can affect other types of connectors.

Headers and edge type connectors are also relatively easy to install and remove, making them a convenient option for use in a wide range of applications. They may include features such as shrouding or other protective features to prevent damage to the pins or contacts during handling or use.
