NEW PRODUCTS – 12″ GPIO Extender and Tube Ribbon Cable for Raspberry Pi

NEW PRODUCT – 12″ GPIO Extender Cable for Raspberry Pi – Give your Pi some reach with this GPIO extender cable, which has two matching connectors on the end of a 12″ (300mm) long gray cable. Plug one end into your Pi and the other end will have a boxed male header you can plug in a Pi Plate that is expecting to go onto a Pi.

Please note! Some electronics do not like having a 12″ long cable involved where they are expecting a short connection – it can add quite a bit of resistance, capacitance and noise to some protocols. For example, many i2c devices (and especially our 16×2 LCD Plate for Pi) may not work or may work poorly with this cable and high speed (1MHz+) SPI may have some ringing.

Technical Details:

  • Weight: 24.81g
  • Dimensions: 330mm / 12.9″ x 38.1mm / 1.5″

NEW PRODUCT – NEW PRODUCT – 12″ GPIO Tube Ribbon Cable for Raspberry Pi – Extra-long and bendy, this is just like your classic Pi GPIO cable but 12″ (300mm) long and fitted through a tube so that it’s a little more flexible in all directions.

Please note: These cables come with strain-relief clips that make the connector a bit taller than ‘classic’ GPIO cables. If you want to fit the cable into a Pi enclosure you may need to remove the top clips by cutting them off gently with diagonal cutters/nippers and pulling the plastic off.

Technical Details:

  • Weight: 29.59g
  • Max Dimensions: 323.85mm / 12.75″ x 34.92mm / 1.37″
