DC connector applications are uncountable, especially for aerospace and military applications connector products. It must be able to withstand extreme conditions, so the design aspects of the connector are very critical. Next, we mainly share 5 good connector design approaches.
Here is the content:
Consider the connector design materials.
Consider the sealing performance of the connector.
Consider the quality of the connector contact plating.
Consider whether the connector is soldered or crimped.
Consider connector design requirements early.
When designing DC battery connectors, engineers must consider a variety of characteristics based on their application requirements. One of the main considerations is the choice of materials for electrical terminals and housings. For example, while copper has better electrical and thermal conductivity, aluminum is cheaper and easier to mold and plate.
Entry protection is a key issue in the design of DC battery connectors because in some special application environments connectors may be affected by water or dust. To ensure the reliability of the connector must have a good sealing performance. Good sealing is the premise of making high-quality products.
In some industrial and military applications of the DC power line connectors, its contact plating quality is very critical. A good plating process can improve the corrosion resistance of the connector and electromagnetic shielding performance. If this aspect of quality is improved, the overall connector life will be greatly extended.
Not all connector contacts can be solder terminated and in some extreme conditions. The operating temperature of the application may exceed the melting point of the solder, resulting in a failed connection. For applications where this risk exists, it is often more reliable to specify crimp connectors.
By crimping the connector contacts to the wire by mechanically squeezing them to ensure that contact is maintained regardless of temperature. This is different from a connection where the wire is passed through an eyelet or hook and then soldered, which involves using a special crimping tool to deform the material to lock the terminals together.
One of the common mistakes DC jack connectors manufacturers make is considering connector design requirements too late in the product design process, which usually means that the product's time-to-market is delayed while the design is reworked. So, connector design requirements should be considered in advance.
