There are numerous types of electronic connectors available on the UK market, all of which perform different functions for different environments.
Elastomeric connectors, for example, require no force to insert them to their required position. They also differ from regular connectors in that they do not require soldering.
They could be classed as a very specific type of connector, and are particularly good for use within harsh environments.
Due to their flexibility, these unique connectors excel in shock and anti-vibration applications.
The connectors are composed of alternating layers of conductive and nonconductive silicone rubber.
This type of rubber ages well so the connectors do not need to be replaced often – the rubber also provides chemical stability and electrical reliability.
Silicone rubber also provides good performance for preventing shocks and vibrations from affecting the electrical conduction.
