Connectors

Think of electronic connectors and life in general. Power is important, isn’t it? In the world of electronics, a power connector is the conduit between a device and a power source.

Do you need a device that allows electrical current to flow through it? Power connectors fulfill that need. They allow power to pass into a device. Their are nearly countless varieties of them out there. The onus is on the consumer to find the one that best fits their needs. Types of connectors vary based on a wide variety of factors, such as the product application – or even your geography (as you are no doubt aware if you’ve traveled to Europe or Asia). Some are small and compact. Some are large and powerful. When you thing of them, you probably think of plugging a device into a wall outlet, but they that transmit power can also work to connect two unique devices. Sometimes, this connection is permanent. Sometimes it is not.

Power connectors may carry either direct current (DC) or alternating current (AC). AC sockets allow for multiple devices to be connected to a primary power source in a structure. They have a wide range of voltage capabilities and design. DC connectors are more standard and less varied. This keeps people from accidentally connecting incompatible plugs. Many connector manufacturers produce lots of varieties of connectors, including power, D-sub, circular, rectangular, fiber optic, hermetic, and thermocouple connectors. Look for experience, assembly support, and limitless options in the company you choose to do business with. Do so, and  you can trust that you’re in the right hands. There are many shapes, sizes and capabilities among power connectors. But when it comes to use, they are quite simple: they supply power. They transfer energy from one place to another, and without them we’d all be lost.
