What is the industrial connector technology?
Industrial connectors are an important and indispensable accessory for modern industry, also known as aviation plugs and aerospace plugs due to their wide application in the aerospace field. Connector because of its high generality, model specifications, a variety of mature process, has been successfully applied to a variety of fields such as intelligent manufacturing, aerospace, high-speed rail, automation technology, rail transportation, 5G communications.
According to the shape can be divided into circular connectors, miniature connectors, small connectors, according to industrial use can be divided into power connectors, data transmission connectors, connectors for medical equipment, automation technology connectors, etc.
1.Connector structure size: form factor is very important, the connection in the product are certain space limitations, especially the single board on the connector, can not interfere with other components. Should be based on the use of space, installation parts to choose the appropriate installation method (installation before and after the installation, installation and fixing methods are screws, card ring, rivets or the connector itself card pin fast locking, etc.) and shape (straight, curved, T-shaped, round, square).
2.Connector shielding performance: With the development of communication products, EMC is increasingly important, the choice of connectors need to have a metal shell, while the cable needs to have a shielding layer, the shielding layer should be connected to the metal shell of the connector to achieve the shielding effect, you can also use injection molding method, the plug parts with copper skin wrapped, the cable shielding layer and copper skin welded together.
3.Connector anti-misplug design: anti-misplug two aspects: on the one hand, the connector itself, the connector itself rotates 180 degrees resulting in the wrong signal connection, at this time need to pay attention to the choice of anti-misplug connector as far as possible, or by adjusting the relative position of the connector relationship to make the assembly unique; on the other hand, for the sake of reducing the type of material considerations, several signals are used the same connector, at this time there may be A plug into the B plug into the B plug, it is necessary to pay attention to the serious consequences of such a situation:
4.Connector impedance: some signals have impedance requirements, especially RF signals, impedance matching requirements are more stringent, impedance mismatch will cause signal reflection, thereby affecting the signal transmission. General signal transmission on the impedance of the connector does not have special requirements.
5.Connector connector reliability: connectors are used to connect signals, so the connection parts to be reliable (such as surface contact is better than point contact, pinhole type is better than leaf spring type, etc.);.
The use of connectors in the environment: outdoor, indoor, high temperature, high humidity, salt spray, mold, cold and other environmental use of the connector, the connector has special requirements.
6.Connector versatility: in the selection process of the connector to choose as common objects, especially between the same series of products, the choice of connectors with a strong commonality, which can reduce the types of materials, reduce costs, while reducing the risk of supply.
7.Connector's locking function: In order to prevent the connector from falling off when matching the problem, the connector needs to have a locking function to ensure good contact;.
8.The acquisition cost of the connector: cost is also a more important factor in the selection process, with the increasingly competitive market, the cost of the connector itself as well as processing costs need to be considered.
9.The pluggable frequency of the connector.
10.Connectors available in harsh environments: now there are many harsh environments, connector design is more common in the harsh environment-specific connector types are also many, this you can choose according to the actual needs, which, high temperature, high humidity, corrosion resistance, salt resistance and other environments have finished products to choose from;.
11.Connector brand: the main quality of the connector are reflected in the internal structure and design of the product, especially the line, which can not be seen with the naked eye, so when acquiring must remember to look at the brand and appearance, it is best to ask for a warranty;.
12.The use of connectors in the environment: outdoor, indoor, high temperature, high humidity, salt spray, mold, cold and other environmental use of the connector, the connector has special requirements.
Connector connectors are increasingly specialized in the application of production processes, with more technological elements, will also be more adaptable to the market for diversified humane research and development, to adapt to more environmental standards requirements.
Smartnoble, as a famous brand, has been specializing the designing and manufacturing of defense and military connectors,push-pull connectors for harsh environment. Our F,C,X,U Series to instead of Fischer connectors which is very common and popular, B,K,S,P series to instead of LEMO, ODU, (mil-std) , etc, and other equivalent military connectors from Amphenol, ITT Cannon, TE Connectivity DEUTSCH, Cinch Connectivity, Anderson Power Products, SOURIAU, TE Connectivity Raychem, FilConn and HellermannTyton, etc.
Smartnoble is one of top defense suppliers in the filed of military connector in China. We can provide for full range connector and custom cable-assembly services for Land, Naval and Aerospace.
