Connectors is a device that connects two active devices to transmit currents or signals. Domestic connectors, known as the connector and socket, generally refers to electrical connectors.
Essential performances of connectors and interconnects can be divided into three aspects: mechanical performance, electrical performance and environmental performance. When it comes to mechanical performance, insertion force is the most significant characteristic. The insertion AND removal force and mechanical life of connectors are related to the structure of contact parts (positive pressure), the quality of coating at contact parts (sliding friction coefficient) and the dimensional accuracy of contact parts (alignment). Besides, the main electrical performance includes contact resistance, insulation resistance and dielectric strength. In addition, environmental performance mainly includes temperature resistance, moisture resistance, salt spray resistance, vibration and impact, etc.
Connectors and interconnects will benefit you if you purchase them. They can simplify the assembly process of electronic products and improve the mass production process. Additionally, if an electronic component fails, it can be replaced quickly when the connector is installed.
