Product details

Maplin ATX Motherboard Female Power Connectors

20-Pin 4.2mm (0.165in.) pitch polarised power connectors, as used on ATX motherboards. The connectors are line versions, designed for attaching to cables, comprising of a housing and 20 crimp/solder terminals. The female connector has a latching mechanism and is the connector that is commonly found on PC computer PSUs. The housings are made from Nylon 66, to UL94V-2.

The picture for this is absolutely useless, I'm trying to make a bench supply out of a PC power supply and finding these headers is a nightmare. Is it the actual female header? Or is it a male header? because the picture is a male header..

Maplin ATX Motherboard **Female** Power Connectors The picture shows the female connector, it would plug onto the male ATX power connector on a PC motherboard. Each of the connectors recessed inside the plastic housing are cylindrical tubes, they mate with the pins (also recessed inside the plastic housing) of the connector on the motherboard. The plastic shrouds on both the male and female connectors serve to guide the connections together without bending or damaging the connections. The following product has both the male and female connectors.
