Connectors

In the world of electricity and electronics, connectors are absolutely necessary. They serve as the key that allows an interface between circuits to either form or send electric power, data, or signals. Connectors ensure that we can both send and receive whatever power or information we need, allowing us to further the complex electric technologies that our world relies on.

Connectors have a number of advantages, but one of the most valuable is probably the secure, reliable connection they can provide. In portable electronics, test equipment, modular systems, and many other applications, a connector can be used in place of hard wiring. This not only lets us get many pieces of a system (re-)connected and disconnected with relative ease; it also helps us keep intricate systems functioning, as they can be more easily (and hence more frequently) worked on.

Different connection types are employed based on what they are meant to do. Plug and socket connectors are quite common and found in our everyday lives. Anything that uses a power cord or an extension cord is connected by way of a plug and socket. The male end of the power cord is the plug, and the female end of the device being plugged into is the socket. Another type of connector, unlike the power cord, is the crimp connector. A crimp connector is used more in the automotive and aerospace industries. It is a strong, reliable connection that uses the ability of certain metals to be bent permanently to make the connection. The metal terminal that the wire is bent into is crimped, or pressed against the wire, to make it stay there.
