Before introducing circular connectors, let us introduce the classification of connectors.
The form and structure of the connectors vary widely. There are various types of connectors with different application objects, frequencies, powers, application environments, etc. With the increasingly diversified structure of connectors, new structures and application fields are constantly emerging, and it is not appropriate to try to use fixed patterns to solve the classification and naming problems. Nevertheless, Shenzhen Business Electronics has summarized some basic classifications for you. Interconnection can be divided into five levels according to the function of internal and external connection of electronic equipment.
As can be seen, circular connectors are the most common of all.
In the broad sense, circular connectors include low-frequency circular connectors, RF coaxial connectors, audio connectors, and the like. Its cylindrical structure has natural firmness and higher strength than any other shape. Most of the plugs and sockets of circular connectors are threaded. The connection terminals can range from two to several hundred. It has the characteristics of small size and high reliability, which can meet the needs of cable connection between electronic equipment.
