If you are still confused, which connectors would be suitable for you, contact INTE-AUTO support for expert advice.
STEP 2: Which is the appropriate cable type as per your requirements?
To figure out if you need a rugged assembly to solve the purpose, you must first figure out what it’s supposed to do and how you’ll use it. It needs to be tested if you expose the connector to extreme calefaction. The risks range from high mating cycles, moisture to dredge and soil, or sterilization. Precipitous connectors are often essential for devices with no room for error.
It’s left to designers’ creativity to figure out the details. These details include a connector’s sealing specifications, working voltages, and current markings.
Assess Your Need for Speed
Look for Reliability in Connector Characteristics
Resistance to extreme environmental conditions is another factor to consider. Temperature, sealing, and longevity are all important factors.
Understanding Connector Materials
The housing material of a connector has an impact on its weight, reliability, and cost. Many products have a shorter life than connectors made from brass with the plating of nickel or chrome. As mentioned before, the methods involved in sterilization will also play a role in material selection.
You may need to include the property of waterproofing connector resistance to dust or dirt. You must search for ratings IP68 or even higher than that. Always consider the fact that there are different definitions of these ratings for each manufacturer.
For example, a two-hour IP68 rating at a distance of 20 meters is not the same as that of a 24-hour IP68 rating. The latter is at a distance of 120 meters. Although both can assert IP68. The manufacturer’s information will help determine the exact specification of IP68. You have the provision for deciding whether the connector’s rating relating to the IP is of unmated use or formated.
Optional Step: Choosing Your Cable
Also, the increasing number of miniature connectors sometimes makes assembly difficult. Consider buying pre-assembled plugs or custom cable assemblies from the manufacturer. It helps you get the most miniature connectors.
You are keeping up with the latest technology and ensuring your whole configuration. These include cabling, which meets the specs of your application requires a strong supplier relation.
STEP 3: Choose a bend relief that will work best for you
