We can image what will it be if there are no connectors.The circuits are permanently connected by continuous conductors.For example,The electronic devices should be connected to the power supply.Both ends of the wire must be connected.Both ends of the wire must be connected,With electronic devices and power supplies are fixed by prison by some method.It brings many problems no matter for production or usage.Take vehicle for example.

If the power supply cable fixed weld on the battery.Automobile factory will add their production time the cost,The battery need to be fixed in time if damaged.and we need to send the car to the maintenance station.Remove the old by unsoldering,then solder the new one,It’ll cost more labor cost.It will avoid many troubles if we have

Connector is named as plug and socket,Usually means electric couple,They connect two active device,transmit current or signals.

The connectors are the components electronics engineers usually meet,Their usage is Between blocked or isolated circuits within a circuit,build bridges,So that the current is flowing.The connector is an indispensable part in the electronic equipment.Observe along the path of current flow,You’ll always find one or more connectors.

Connectors come in a variety of forms and structures,With the difference between the application object, frequency, power, application environment, etc,There are different types of connectors.For example,Connectors for lighting and hard drive on the field,And the connector that ignites the rocket is very different.But whatever kind of connector it is.should ensure that the current is flowing smoothly and reliably.In general.The connector is connected to more than just current.In today’s rapid development of optoelectronic technology,In an optical fiber system, the carrier of the signal is light.Glass and plastic instead of wires in ordinary circuits,But connectors are also used in optical signaling pathways,They act as electrical connectors.

Recently,Some users gradually choose SMB connectors because SMB series connectors can improve the consistency of the connector installation and their excellent performance,The SMB series can also be used in commercial and military.

In fact,The same application be selected through have many schemes,The user can choose the suitable connectors based on their demand.

Connection mechanism selection:

Coupling mechanism make it possible to connect the two connector,It depends on the required mass and impedance characteristics of the two interfaces coupled together and the operation frequency.The connection mechanism has a great influence on the performance of the connector.Here are five common connection mechanisms.

Screwed Coupling Mechanism,This type of connect use a coupling nut to connect,It should be noted that the limitation of the maximum torque in case the nut slides,Connector with threaded connection mechanism have the series as below:

SMC、SMA、TNC、N、7/16、SSMA、CC4、L9,They mainly use in test equipment,military and telecommunication equipment.

Snap-on Coupling Mechanism:They are mainly used in connectors for small interfaces and their installation density is relatively high.Because this kind of connection mechanism is more convenient and easy to use,they’re usually used in the PCB panel.

The push-in connection has a locking reed,The advantages of them are the dialing is very quick and convenient,This type of bindiny mechanism is mainly used in miniature connector series,Like:MMCX、MCX、SMB、SSMB、SMZ series.

Slide-on Coupling Mechanism usually used high density installation occasions.It’s very easy to plug and dial,This type of connector is mainly used in board – to – board coaxial connection systems.The connection mechanism is mainly used in small DIN multi-end connectors,Like BMA、C4、C5、C6、ERI,They are usually modular installations.

Bayonet Coupling Mechanism,There are a pair of lock slots,this kind of locking mechanism is the unique feature for BNC connectors.

Bayonet connection mechanism is usually used in applications where reliable connections are required and can be inserted quickly,For example:testing and measuring equipment and military equipment.

Push-Pull Self-Latching, This connection mechanism has a unique way of self-locking.

It is as quick and convenient as a slip-in connection when plugged, but it is very reliable.When it locks itself, even a pull cable will not unlock.Push-in self-locks are typically used on small connectors in high-density installations such as:1.0/2. 3,1.6/5.6 series.It is fast and reliable.
