Connectors

An electrical connector is an electro-mechanical device for joining electrical circuits as an interface using a mechanical assembly. Connectors consist of plugs (male-ended) and jacks (female-ended). The connection may be temporary, as for portable equipment, require a tool for assembly and removal, or serve as a permanent electrical joint between two wires or devices. Connectors made out of PA66 are excellent electrical insulators, resist fire hazard, and are durable enough to withstand stresses associated with mechanical assembly.
