How to choose a connector?

When it comes to ensuring the smooth operation of a system, selecting the correct connector is crucial. The appropriate connector can help you make your system smaller, lighter, and more user-friendly. It's not the place to cut corners, because the appropriate connector system can help you avoid costly recalls, repairs, and lost customers.


Things to be known while selecting a connector

  1. Electrical requirements

The first step in choosing the right connections for your device is determining the electrical current and voltage specifications for each contact. You must ensure that not only do you have the correct amount of connections but that those contacts are also capable of carrying the power needs of your system.

  1. Adding new features

Determine whether further functionalities can or should be introduced to your connector after you've identified electrical requirements. Hybrid connectors are often custom made, however, if you have the opportunity to focus with a supplier to produce a hybrid connector that is tailored to your unique needs, it may be worthwhile.

  1. Types of termination

The assembly procedure and the capability to secure a connector are both affected by termination types. Solder contacts are generally easier to seal from moisture penetration, although crimp contacts may provide superior field reparability.

  1. Sealing the environment

Check the manufacturer's Ingress Protection rating for dust and water sealing at various depths and operational time frames if the connectors will be utilized in tough operating conditions. Make sure you know what your connectors will be used for.

  1. Substance

Brass fittings with copper plating have a longer lifecycle and are more wear-resistant than other materials. Metal connectors are an alternative if lightweight is a concern. Plastics are ideal for single-use and throw-away applications.

  1. Needs for Reliability

Now that you've looked at the electric, ending, closing, and availability of materials, it's time to consider how often your customer will connect and disengage the item throughout its life.

  1. Mass production

Miniaturization is doing some amazing things right now, and you should enjoy its benefits whenever possible. Examine the features in each connector carefully, since they become increasingly critical as the current and voltage rise.

  1. Assemblies and raw cable

It's time to specify the basic cable and the cable component after you've identified your connector. Because connectors are shrinking all the time, it's becoming more common to specify a little connector that won't function with the longer cable you want to use. To verify whether the cable and connector are compatible, you'll need to look at them both together.

  1. Inquire about customer and distribution channels

Check for practical delivery dates; unique connectors from any source will usually take longer to arrive than a standard product. If you can use anything that has already been designed, the delivery time will be reduced.

  1. Engineering assistance can help you save time

Inquire about the technology product development support you may expect from vendors. Find out more about the design and fabrication services that are available.
