These premium wires are stranded 26 AWG wires with male terminals on both ends . Together with our 0.1″ crimp connector housings , these wires can be used to make custom cables with 0.1″ (2.54mm) connectors. These 2″ (5 cm) wires have yellow insulation and ship in packs of 10 .
These wires with pre-crimped terminals are equivalent to our premium jumper wires without the 1×1 crimp connector housings on the ends. By combining these wires with our crimp connector housings, you can quickly and easily create custom cables with 0.1″ (2.54 mm) connectors that mate with various 0.1″-spaced connectors, including male and female headers and solderless breadboards. Just pick the housing for the correct number of pins, pick the colors and genders for your wires, and snap them into the housings (note: it’s not easy to get the wires back out, so plan carefully!). No soldering is required!
You can easily make cable harnesses or assemblies that branch from one connector on one side to multiple connectors on the other (an example of this is shown in the picture to the right); you can also cut off one pre-crimped end and solder the wires directly to components to make swapping connections easy, as shown in the motor picture below.
The wires are available in eight lengths—1″ (2.5 cm), 2″ (5 cm), 3″ (7.5 cm), 6″ (15 cm), 12″ (30 cm), 24″ (60 cm), 36″ (90 cm), and 60″ (150 cm)—and up to ten colors:
These are the same colors as those used on resistor colour codes and rainbow ribbon cable. The available colour options and pack sizes depend on the wire length, as does the wire gauge:
|length||single-colour pack quantity||multi-colour pack quantity||gauge (AWG)|
|1″ (2.5 cm)||10 (six colors available)||60 (10 each of six colors)||26|
|2″ (5 cm)||10 (six colors available)||60 (10 each of six colors)||26|
|3″ (7.5 cm)||10 (six colors available)||50 (5 each of ten colors)||26|
|6″ (15 cm)||10 (ten colors available)||50 (5 each of ten colors)||26|
|12″ (30 cm)||10 (ten colors available)||50 (5 each of ten colors)||26|
|24″ (60 cm)||5 (ten colors available)||50 (5 each of ten colors)||26|
|36″ (90 cm)||5 (ten colors available)||20 (2 each of ten colors)||22|
|60″ (150 cm)||2 (ten colors available)||10 (1 each of ten colors)||22|
Note that the single-colour packs of the 1″, 2″, and 3″ wires are only available in six colors (black, red, yellow, green, blue, and white); the single-colour packs for all of the other wire lengths are available in all ten colors. The multi-colour packs of the 1″ and 2″ wires have ten each of six colors (black, red, yellow, green, blue, and white); the multi-colour packs for all of the other wire lengths, including 3″, have various quantities of all ten colors.
These wires can be purchased with male terminals on both ends, female terminals on both ends, or one male and one female terminals. These crimped terminals are designed for use with 0.1″ (2.54 mm) male headers and female headers, solderless breadboards, and prototyping PCBs. Note that we also sell the male and female crimp pins by themselves if you want to crimp your own wires. Close-up pictures of the male and female terminations are shown below:

The following video talks about some of our various wire and cable options and includes a short demonstration of how to use these pre-crimped wires with our crimp connector housings:
One of our customers has made a very nice video that talks about how to make custom cables with these pre-crimped wires and with self-crimped wires made with our crimping tool. The section on using pre-crimped wires and crimp connector housings starts at around 2:00.
