Budget VGA Video Cable Male to Male D-Sub Plug
This budget VGA cable features a male D-Sub DB915 plug with thumb screws on each end. Common uses include connecting a PC to a monitor screen or a projector that supports a VGA connection.
Features of this range of cables include:
- DB915 moulded male plug to male plug
- 14 pins wired
- Thumb screws for secure connection
15 Pins or 14 Pins?
You may notice that one of the 15 pins is "missing". In the past, female VGA sockets only had 14 holes. This was so that similar 15-pin connections couldn't be plugged into the VGA socket by mistake. The "missing" pin remains unused in most consumer applications, so 14-pin cables work perfectly for connecting PC monitors, projectors, etc. Note that some more advanced applications such as security surveillance systems do use the 15th pin.
