Connectors

By definition, connectors have the distinct ability to join, or fasten, two or more components together. Each component may function individually, but using various types of available connector allow for the components to function together. Choosing the proper connector for a specific project will be as simple or as complex as the project itself. Different connector will serve various functions according to the components they are connecting.

Connectors are used in everyday life, even though we may not think about them. Cable, coaxial, RF, and USB are just a few examples of common connector used in the home. Connecting a DVD player, stereo, and surround system to your television is an example of how we use electronic connector in everyday life.

Home use of connector may be most common to many of us, but that doesn’t mean connectors aren’t used for other purposes as well. Passing through the checkout counter at your local grocery store is a simple example. Not all commercial connector are as simple. More complex connector are used by the aerospace industry. These complex connector are created with precision for the intricacy of the component they are joining.

Industrial connector, though simplistic in nature, must meet specific requirements and regulations set forth by each specific industry. Industrial connector are often specialized to meet intense environmental conditions such as high temperatures, high altitudes, high pressures, and high voltages.

Many generic connector can be purchased at a local hardware store. While this may be appropriate for our home use, commercial and industrial connector are often specialized for each project. The materials, finishes, and format are only a few examples of things to consider when making an informed purchase.

When choosing a material for connector there are numerous options including aluminum, brass, stainless steel, and composite thermoplastic. Brass is the least conductive of the materials, making brass one of the more common materials used for connectors. On the other hand, composite thermoplastic is not as common, often needing to be specialized by project for proper usage. Usually a good rule of thumb is that the cheaper the connector, the more common the material used in its creation.

Among the numerous finishes available today is cadmium, electroless nickel, zinc cobalt, zinc nickel, and passivate. The most common finish for connectors is electroless nickel, or nickel plate. This finish works very well for many common use connectors, but for higher quality connector, electroless nickel may not be the first choice.
