What is combustibility of the connector?
Every connectorwork with electricity , which may cause fire, so connector should be fire-resistance. It is suggested to select power connector which made by flame retardance and self-extinguishment materials.
What are the categories of connectors?
Connectors can classified into high-frequency connector and low-frequency connector based on frequency. It can also be classified based on the shape into round conncetor and rectangular connector. According to the usage, connectors can use on printed board,equipment cabinet,sound equipment, power connector and other special use.
What is pre-insulated connection?
Pre-insulated connection is also called insulation displacement contact, which is invented in 1960s in the U.S. It has features like high reliability, low cost, easy to use, etc. This technology has been widely used in board interface connector. It is suitable for the connection of tape cable. There is no need to remove insulating layer on the cable, because it relies on the U-shaped contact spring , which can penetrate to insulating layer, make conductor get into the groove and locked in the groove of contact spring, so that ensure electric conduction between conductor and leaf spring is tight. Pre-insulated connection only involves simple tools, but cable with rated wire gauge is required.
What is mechanical life of connector?
Mechanical life is the total times to plug and unplug. In general, Mechanical life is between 500 to 1000 times. Before reach the mechanical life, average contact resistance, insulation resistance and insulation withstanding test voltage should not exceed rated value.
What are the methods to joint connector?
Methods include weld, pressure welding, wire-wrap connection, pre-insulated connection, and screw fastening.
What is the meaning of “MIM”
Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a metalworking process in which finely-powered metal is mixed with binder material to create a “feedstock”that is then shaped and solidified using injection molding.It’s a high technology that has developed quickly during these years.
