Panel Mount Connectors- The Ultimate FAQ Guide
The world is rapidly moving towards the era of unmanned driving and artificial intelligence.
Therefore, modern machines, devices, computers, cables, and many other types of equipment rely on transferring data, currents, and signals.
The connectors play a crucial role in transmitting signals, data, and currents.
In all new technology areas, such as driverless cars, pipeline crawling robots, military battery packs etc., INTE-AUTO Panel Mount Connectors operate flawlessly.
It is possible to easily and quickly transfer any type of data, signal, and current from one device to other using connectors.
INTE-AUTO Panel Mount Receptacle Connectors are explained thoroughly in the following FAQ guide.
1. What are INTE-AUTO Panel Mount Connectors?
INTE-AUTO Panel Mount Connectors are small devices that facilitate the transmission of current, signals, or data between two devices
They include a male plug and a female receptacle.
- The receptacle is installed on the device panels to receive data, currents or signals from other devices and transfer them to the complete circuit.
- The male plug is connected with the device or cable from where you need current, signals or data and is used to mate with the receptacle in order to transfer them.
INTE-AUTO manufactures front and back Panel Mount Connectors.
The male plug must only be inserted into the female receptacle to start the transmission process.
For longer connector life, contacts are made of gold-plated brass.
With these connectors, you can work in harsh environments and transfer data, signals, and current flawlessly to your destination without any issues.
Different pin connections and sizes are available to meet the requirements of various applications.

7. Can You Blindly Mate INTE-AUTO Panel Mount Connectors? How can You Do It?
Yes, INTE-AUTO Panel Mount Connectors can be blind-mated if you are unable to align or can’t see the plug and receptacle.
On INTE-AUTO’s Panel Mount Connectors, a keying system has been incorporated.
There are ten keying codes, which are known as G, A, B, C, D, E, F, J, K, and L.
Basically, these codes indicate the number of protrudes, i.e., one protrude (keying code), or two protrudes (keying code) and the angle between them from the center of the connector.
A code G has the key value one and is the standard code with the 0-degree angle from the connector’s center and has a single protrude on its surface.
When mating connectors with keying codes G, the protrude of the plug needs to be aligned with the protrude space or the red mark on the receptacle.
Furthermore, other keying codes have angles from the connector’s center as follows:
- As represented by α, code A is 30 degrees
- As represented by α, code B is 45 degrees
- As represented by α, code C is 60 degrees
- As represented by γ, code D is 95 degrees
- As represented by β, code E is 120 degrees
- As represented by β, code F is 145 degrees
- As represented by α, code J is 5 degrees
- As represented by α, code K is 5 degrees
- As represented by γ, code L is 70 degrees

Application of INTE-AUTO’s Panel Mount Connectors in New Fields
The world is gradually advancing towards the unmanned driving and AI era. That is why energy resources including electricity are extremely important. To this effect, connectors are indispensable in signal transmission. INTE-AUTO’s connectors transmit signals flawlessly in new technology areas such as driverless cars, pipeline crawling robots, military battery packs, and other similar applications.
The Panel Mount Connector developed by INTE-AUTO is suitable for those environments:
- High temperatures
High temperatures will damage the insulation material of the connector. This will result in the reduction of insulation resistance and voltage tolerance. For metals, high temperatures can make the out shell lose its elasticity. The heat will also accelerate oxidation and cause plating damage.
INTE-AUTO’s connectors are made of brass, the insulator is PPS, and adapted to withstand working environment temperatures from -40 to 250⁰ Celsius.
- Thin air
When working in a high-altitude environment with thin air, the voltage tolerance function of the connector is reduced. Therefore, very high altitudes may cause short circuits.
- Drastic temperature changes
The drastic humidity change test is used to imitate certain working conditions for the connector. One of these is a spacecraft or space probe situation where a cold environment suddenly changes into a warm environment. Sudden extreme changes in temperature may cause cracks or delamination of insulation materials.
