There are two main types of pigtails.
The first simply describes the flying lead(s) attached to motors, switches, etc. or at the end of a multi-core cable.
The second is an extension or branch lead attached to a cable, e.g. in a distributor box.
Explanation: A pigtail is a short strip of copper braid. It is usually used to connect electrical equipment to ground as it can easily be attached, most often WITHOUT a connector, and provides a low-resistance connection.
