Four common connection methods of industrial connectors
The connection function of the connector provides the equipment with decades of service guarantee. As the application environment continues to deteriorate, the performance and reliability of the connector will decrease, which has prompted the innovation of the new connector. There are four main types of connection of industrial connectors:
1. Threaded connection method:
Some connectors with larger sizes and electrical connectors that work in a strong vibration environment often use a connection form. This type of connection can be fitted with a fuse to prevent loosening after the connection is completed. This connection type is reliable, but the connection and unloading speed is slow.
2. Bayonet connection method:
It is a reliable and rapid connection and separation form. Most electrical connectors of the connection form have a visual display of correct connection and locking, which can be observed from the small hole on the side of the connection nut of the electrical connector.
3. Plug connection method:
It is a multi-purpose connection form. When the plug and the socket of the electrical connector are connected and separated, the moving direction is usually a linear motion, without twisting and rotating, and only a small working space can be connected and unloaded. The common plug connection has two structures: ball or pin. Because this connection form does not have a mechanically labor-saving mechanism, once it is inserted incorrectly, the mechanical resistance increases significantly and can be found in time.
4. Cabinet connection mode:
It is an electrical connector used on some equipment that needs to be blindly connected near the frame, which can make the electrical equipment lighter and smaller, easier to maintain and more reliable. This type of connection prevents the operator from feeling the connection. An accurate positioning device must be designed to avoid forcibly connecting the incorrectly inserted electrical connectors, making it impossible to insert incorrectly. Cabinet-type electrical connectors usually adopt floating or elastic contact design structures to ensure their correct connection.
