What is a connector? What are the categories of connectors?

Speaking of comprehensive wiring, we will naturally think of a lot of knowledge about comprehensive wiring. Of course, there is much knowledge about integrated wiring, and today we will talk about connectors. What is a connector? What are the categories of connectors?

What is a connector?
 ds121The connector is CONNECTOR, also known as connectors, plugs and sockets in China. Generally refers to electrical connectors. That is, a device that connects two active devices to transmit current or signal.

The connector is a component that our electronic engineering and technical personnel often contact. Its function is very simple: to build a bridge of communication between blocked or isolated circuits in the circuit, so that the current can flow and the circuit can realize the predetermined function.

Connectors are an indispensable part of electronic equipment. Observing along the path of current flow, you will always find one or more connectors. Connector forms and structures are ever-changing. There are various types of connectors depending on the application object, frequency, power, and application environment. For example, the connectors for lighting on the court and the connectors for hard drives, and the connectors for lighting rockets are quite different.

But no matter what kind of connector, it is necessary to ensure that the current flows smoothly, continuously and reliably. Generally speaking, what the connector is connected to is not limited to current. In today's rapid development of optoelectronic technology, the carrier of the signal transmission is light in the optical fiber system. Glass and plastic replace the wires in the ordinary circuit, but the optical signal Connectors are also used in the path, and their functions are the same as circuit connectors.

The brands of connectors include Kanami, Nutrick, Fortune Eagle, Toshiba, Molex, etc. The connectors often used in our daily life can be divided into the following categories:

1. Strip/press type connector

2. Circular connector

3. Rectangular/Heavy Duty Connector

4. RF coaxial connector

5. PCB/printed circuit board connector

6. Wire-to-wire connector

7. FFC/FPC/film cable connector

8. Flat cable connector

9. Computer equipment connector

10. Video/audio signal connector

11. Mobile phone connector

12. Power connector

13. High voltage connector

14. Car connector

15. Aviation connector

16. High-speed signal linker

17. Optical fiber connector

18. Microwave linker

19. Waterproof connector

20. High temperature resistant connector
