Electronic connectors are electromechanical devices used to quickly and easily disconnect or interrupt a circuit path. Because they have such a wide range of applications, connectors come in a variety of sizes, shapes, complexities, and quality levels to suit those applications. For example, those used in more rugged and extreme conditions require protection from vibrations, extreme temperatures, dirt, water, and contaminants.
Connectors come in pairs, male connectors which have protruding pins and female connectors which have recessed sockets. When the two come together, they “mate” and form a connection. They’re also usually polarized to prevent two incorrectly oriented connectors from mating.
Versatile and adaptable, connectors serve in many different functions and applications. Ranging from military and space to consumer electronics, there are many different types of connectors. However, they all do the same essential thing, they connect. Connectors serve as a configurable bridge for any number of electrical sources and devices. Of course, some connectors are better and more optimal than others for certain applications. Some types of electronic connectors include:
