What are the wiring methods for waterproof connectors?

2023-10-08

1. Waterproof connectors have evolved from a single type to various connection methods, constantly adapting to various device terminals and outdoor waterproof solutions. Connectors are also electronic components that connect electrical circuits, and are indispensable components in electronic devices. Quick connectors are also commonly used components in our electronic engineering technology. So what is the role of quick connectors? In fact, the function of a quick connector is very simple: it serves as a link between blocked or isolated circuits within the circuit, building a bridge for communication, allowing the circuit to flow and take effect according to its intended function.


2. With the changes in the application environment, connectors have evolved into many connection methods, with the aim of better adapting to the on-site environment and ensuring stable signal transmission. Below we will introduce several common connector connection methods, hoping that everyone can further deepen their understanding of connectors through this article.

3. Thread connection: This is a traditional connection method, and the advantage of this connection method is its strong reliability. The cable is fixed by the friction force of the nut gear, and the effect will be better if a fuse is added to prevent loosening. The disadvantage is that the disassembly speed is relatively slow, requiring a little electricity to remove the thread, which is very time-consuming.

4. Plug and unplug connection: This is a commonly used connection method. The plug and socket of the connector can be connected and separated by moving horizontally, without the need for twisting or optional installation, and can be connected and separated in a very short time. There are two common structures for plug-in connections: ball and pin. This connection method eliminates the traditional mechanical locking mechanism, so once the connector is mistakenly inserted, it is difficult to pull it out.

5. Tin welding connection: refers to the formation of continuous metal between the solder and the surface to be welded. Therefore, for connectors, the prerequisite is to have weldability. The common coatings on the welding end of connectors include metals such as tin alloy, silver, and gold. The common welding ends of the reed type contact include the welding pad type, the punching welding pad type, and the notch welding pad type: the needle hole type contact has a drilled arc notch on the common welding ends.


6. Screw free connection: This is a popular connection form that can quickly connect and separate. Commonly used for the connection of two simple electrical components, connectors that use a buckle type connection will be marked with the correct locking direction of the buckle at the buckle. Users can observe whether the buckle is installed through the small hole on the side of the connector nut.

7. Shenzhen Greenway Electronics Co., Ltd. recently launched a new quick connector, which is very simple and fast to use. The crimping type wiring design abandons the traditional cumbersome screw type wiring method and uses crimping type wiring. With just one break, one insert, and one press three steps, it can perfectly and quickly connect, solve wiring problems, and improve wiring efficiency by 50%.
