Understand what is an electronic connector, what is its basic composition, can have greater flexibility when using electronic connector products, designing and integrating new products, and using components to form a system. The basic structure of the electronic connector is composed of four parts: contact, insulator, shell and accessories, please see the detailed introduction below;
The contact part of the sub-connector is the core part that completes the electrical connection function. Generally, the contact pair is composed of a male contact part and a female contact part, and the electrical connection is completed through the insertion of the female and male contacts.
The insulator of the electronic connector is also often called a base or a mounting board. Its function is to arrange the contact pieces according to the required position and spacing, and to ensure the insulation performance between the contact pieces and between the contact pieces and the housing.
The shell of the electronic connector is also called the outer shell, which is the outer cover of the electronic connector product. It provides mechanical protection for the built-in insulating mounting plate and pins, and provides alignment when the plug and socket are inserted, and then the electronic connector fixed to the device.
Most of the accessories of electronic connectors are standard parts and general parts. They are usually divided into structural attachments and installation attachments. Structural attachments such as: snap ring, positioning key, positioning pin, guide pin, coupling ring, cable clamp, sealing ring, seal Pads, etc.; installation accessories such as: bolts, nuts, screws, spring coils, etc.
