Connectors are one of the most common electronic parts in the market. Because there is such a wide variety of connectors and applications for these connectors, it can be difficult to know what you need for what purpose. Fortunately, the most common types of connectors are relatively easy to recognize.
Of course, that is not to say that these are the only connectors, nor are these aforementioned uses the only use that each connector has. But no matter what application or type of connector you’re looking at, there are few basics to remember. For example, connectors are typically made up of two parts, a male with pins, and a female with receptacles for the pins. If the application in question subjects the connectors to extreme strain and environmental conditions, then you might need to look for connectors that are moisture, vibration, and heat proof. Or maybe, the application has small space restraints, in which case you need connectors with different outlines or degrees of flexibility. If the application is sensitive, you might need connectors with lower or high current and voltage capabilities and so on.
There are many things to consider when you’re looking for a connector. And while it can be very daunting because of all the things you have to consider and the options you have, it’s important that you take the time to figure out exactly what you need. It’s better to take the time to figure it out than to take the time to fix it and deal with problems later.
