What is a connector? A connector is a component that our electronic engineering technicians often come into contact with; Its function is very simple: it establishes a communication bridge between blocked or isolated circuits in the circuit, allowing current to flow and enabling the circuit to achieve predetermined functions. Connectors are an essential part of electronic devices. Observing along the current path, you will always find one or more. The form and structure of connectors are constantly changing. There are various types of connectors depending on the application object, frequency, power, application environment, etc. For example, connectors for stadium lighting, connectors for hard drives, and lighting rocket connectors are completely different. However, regardless of the type, it is necessary to ensure that the current flows smoothly, continuously, and reliably.
Why use connectors: Imagine what it would be like without connectors? At this point, the circuit should be continuously connected to the continuous conductor. For example, if you want to connect an electronic device to a power source, you need to use some method (such as welding) to securely connect the two ends of the connecting wire to the electronic device and the power source. As a result, production and use have brought a lot of inconvenience.
Basic requirements for connectors: Due to their ease of maintenance, improved production processes, and more flexible design, they have become an essential part of electronic equipment. Of course, the quality of connectors is fundamental. By further understanding the wiring harness connector, its basic requirements are as follows:
The connector has stable contact resistance;Durability;Mechanical toughness;Convenient installation of connectors;The connector size is generally small;High density and light weight;Good meshing and separation feel;Low engagement force of connectors;Guiding protection;Adequate connectivity performance;Waterproofing of connectors;Anti electromagnetic radiation;Easy wiring harness assembly;The connector is easy to repair;Insulator: Wide temperature range, self extinguishing.
