14 09 2011

Electrical/Industrial connectors are used in a wide variety of different devices within the electronics industry.

The main types of industrial electrical connectors which exist on the market include;

–          Industrial rectangular

–          Industrial circular

–          Coaxial connectors

–          Heat seal connectors

–          Smart card connectors

This particular type of connector is designed to withstand intense conditions and high vibrations. This is so that the electrical current which they are carrying is not compromised by any external influences.

Military connectors can also be used within industrial services as well. Even though they are more commonly associated with military devices, their complex construction means particularly diverse.

Devices within a factory are similar to those used within a military or combat situation, in the sense that they need to be durable and able to withstand changes in temperature.

Hybrid Connectors

One of the most durable and efficient electrical connectors are hybrid connectors.

Hybrid connectors are modular. This means they tend to be very useful for simplifying assembly, repair and future modifications.

They are also very effective in reducing equipment installation time as they help to reduce the amount of individual cable and connector assemblies.

Probably the most unique feature of hybrid connectors is the fact that they have housings, this allows for the intermixing of many connector types including power connectors, radio frequency connectors and USB connectors.
