I'm trying to make a cable for a 4 wire interface to a stepper. The intention is to have a short cable attached to the stepper, a male piece on the PCB board, and a bridging cable that can be replaced for different lengths.
I was thinking of connecting the stepper cables to a female piece, then making a cable with female and male on each end. Then the PCB board will have a male piece.
So far, I've only noticed these headers fit the description. So I was wondering, is it normal to use these kinds of headers to solder wire, and make a cable for PCBs with 0.1 in. pitch? then connect the other side with one of its mating parts?
