This section provides overview, applications, and principles of industrial connectors. Also, please take a look at the list of 371 industrial connector manufacturers and their company rankings.
Industrial connector is used to connect electrical power in industrial equipment.
They are used not only to supply power, but also to exchange data and other electrical information.
Industrial connector boast excellent expandability and convenience in the exchange of electricity. For example, if you want to install a recording medium in a PC, you can solder a new circuit to the electrical circuit, but connecting the recording medium via a connector offers better handling.
Industrial connectors are used in a variety of industrial equipment.
In personal computers, memory sockets, printed circuit board connectors, and interface connectors are used.
Memory sockets are connectors that connect the base of a PC to RAM memory and other memory installed in the PC.
This is compared to interface connectors, which connect the PC itself to memory outside the PC, such as an external hard disk. PCB connectors are used to connect printed circuit boards with different roles. Industrial connectors are also used in industrial robots and machine tools, construction vehicles and railroads, power plants, and oil plants.
Connectors are constructed with contacts, housings, shells, eyelets, etc.
The contact is the contactor, which is the pathway for electricity to flow when the connectors are energized. The housing is made of an insulating material and is used to hold the contacts. The shell protects the contacts and housing from external forces and is placed over both components. Eyelets are used to fasten connectors together from the outside. It prevents the connectors from falling off unexpectedly.
There are two types of collectors, plugs and sockets, which are used for different purposes. Plugs have protruding contacts and sockets have recessed contacts. When the contacts of the plug mate with the contacts of the socket, current is conducted. Plugs and sockets are used to ensure that connectors of different standards are not mistakenly connected and that power is reliably supplied.
