An ideal connector is designed to be resistant to pressure, oil, water and vibration. The connectors are widely used in communications applications, computers, industrial machinery and consumer electronics.
1. FFC Connectors: flexible flat cable (FFC) consists of thin rectangular copper conductors laminated between two layers of polyester insulation. These copper wires are left exposed at each end and then tinned to make electrical contact with the connector. A stiffener is attached to the cable end that provides mechanical stability to the copper conductors exposed during mating and decoupling. This type of cable is used when a straight one-on-one connection is required.
2. FPC Connectors: flexible printed circuits (FPC) are similar in construction to the FFC, except that the copper film is chemically etched to produce a specific pattern. While these circuits are customised for each application, various shapes and geometries can solve the most difficult packaging problems.
3. Flat cables: the cable connectors of the tape are designed for use with multi-way IDC so many IDC connections can be made at once, saving time connectors in applications where many connections are needed. These connectors are not designed to be reusable, but often can be reused if care is taken to remove the cable.
4. PCB Connectors: Printed circuit board (PCB) mounted terminal blocks allow individual wires that connect to the circuit board. PCB mounted terminal blocks are welded to the plate, but are available in a separate version of traction that allows the cable through the block to be disconnected from the part that is soldered to the PCB. These connectors are used for example in equipment for data, measurement and control technology and the power and industrial electronics.
5. USB connectors: Connect USB peripherals such as mice, keyboards, cameras, printers, flash and hard drives that use USB cables, USB hubs, USB wireless devices, USB accelerator, USB extension, USB extension cable, USB connectors, and USB 3.0 PCMCIA Connectors – The PCMCIA (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association) connector is used to connect peripherals to computers PCMCIA, usually laptops.
6. Crimp Connectors: These are commonly used to terminate twisted wire. Meet numerous uses, including allowing the wires to be easily ended in terminal screw type terminals fast-on / quick-disconnect / spade-foot type terminals. Crimp terminals are united in inserting the stripped end of a stranded wire in a portion of the terminal, which is then mechanically deformed / compressed firmly around the wire.
7. DC Connectors: Connectors Direct Current (DC) provides a specific application with direct current, so it must be used carefully to ensure that the equipment is not damaged. Common types include DC plug DC plugs and connector’s coaxial DC power, which mainly connect a device to a power source.
