What is the connector?
Connectors. Domestic also known as connectors, plugs and sockets. Generally refers to electrical connectors. A device that connects two active devices, transmits current or signals. It is widely used in aviation, aerospace, national defense and other military systems.
Connectors are a part of our electronic Engineering technicians ' regular contact. Its role is very simple: in the circuit blocked or isolated between the circuit, the bridge to communicate, so that the current flow, so that the circuit to achieve the intended function. A connector is an indispensable part of an electronic device, and you will always find one or more connectors along the current flow path. Connector form and structure is ever-changing, with the application of objects, frequency, power, application environment and so on, there are various types of connectors.
For example, the connectors for lighting on the golf course and the connectors for the hard drives, and the connectors that ignite the rockets, are very different. However, no matter what kind of connectors, we must ensure that the current flow smoothly, continuously and reliably. Generally speaking, connector is not limited to the current, in the rapid development of optoelectronic technology today, optical fiber systems, the carrier of the transmission signal is light, glass and plastic to replace the common circuit of the wire, but the optical signal path also use connectors, they are the same as the circuit connector.
Benefits of connectors:
1. Improve the production process
Connectors simplify the assembly process of electronic products. Also simplifies the production process;
2. Easy to repair
If an electronic component fails, the failure component can be replaced quickly when the connector is fitted;
3. easy to upgrade
With the technical progress, with the connector can be updated with the components, with new, more perfect elements to replace the old;
4. improve the flexibility of design
Using connectors allows engineers to have greater flexibility when designing and integrating new products, as well as using Meta components to form systems. As the structure of connector is becoming more and more diverse, new structure and application fields are appearing unceasingly, it is difficult to adapt to solve classification and naming problem with a fixed pattern. Nevertheless, some basic classifications are still valid.
