What is combustibility of the connector?

Every connectorwork with electricity, which may cause fire, so connector should be fire-resistance. It is suggested to select power connector which made by flame retardance and self-extinguishment materials.

What are the influence of environmental parameter to connector?

Environmental parameter includes temperature,humidity, temperature change, atmospheric pressure and corrosion environment. As transport and storage environment has significant impact on connector, the selection of connector must be based on actual environment.

What are the categories of connectors?

Connectors can classified into high-frequency connector and low-frequency connector based on frequency. It can also be classified based on the shape into round conncetor and rectangular connector. According to the usage, connectors can use on printed board, equipment cabinet, sound equipment, power connector and other special use.

What is pre-insulated connection?

Pre-insulated connection is also called insulation displacement contact, which is invented in 1960s in the U.S. It has features like high reliability, low cost, easy to use, etc. This technology has been widely used in board interface connector. It is suitable for the connection of tape cable. There is no need to remove insulating layer on the cable, because it relies on the U-shaped contact spring, which can penetrate to insulating layer, make conductor get into the groove and locked in the groove of contact spring, so that ensure electric conduction between conductor and leaf spring is tight. Pre-insulated connection only involves simple tools, but cable with rated wire gauge is required.

What are the methods to joint connector?

Methods include weld, pressure welding, wire-wrap connection, pre-insulated connection, and screw fastening.

What should be considered about the environment temperature of connector?

The working temperature depends on metal material and insulation material of the connector. High temperature may destroy insulation material, which reduce insulation resistance and  insulation withstanding test voltage; To metal, high temperature can make contact point lose elasticity, accelerate oxidation and make cladding material turn metamorphic. In general, the environment temperature is between -55.

What is mechanical life of connector?

Mechanical life is the total times to plug and unplug. In general, Mechanical life is between 500 to 1000 times. Before reach the mechanical life, average contact resistance, insulation resistance and insulation withstanding test voltage should not exceed rated value.

What are the strengths of board interface industrial connector?

ANEN board interface industrial connector has adopted integrated structure, customers can easily follow the hole size on the specification to trepan and fasten.

What is the meaning of "MIM”?

Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a metalworking process in which finely-powered metal is mixed with binder material to create a "feedstock" that is then shaped and solidified using injection molding. It’s a high technology that has developed quickly during these years.

Does male of IC600 connector be damaged if falling down from different heights?

No, male of IC600 connector has been tested under.

What are the raw materials of IC 600 industrial connector’s terminal?

Materials include H65 brass. The content of copper is high and the surface of terminal is covered with silver, which largely increase the conductivity of the connector.

What are the differences between ANEN power connector and others?

ANEN power connector can quickly connect and disconnect. It can transfer electricity and voltage steadily.

What does industrial connector apply to?

Industrial connectors are suitable for electric power station, emergency generator car, power unit, power grid, wharf, and mining, etc.

How to connect IC 600 Board interface industrial connector?

Plugging procedure: The marks on the plug and socket have to be lined up. Insert plug in with socket to the stop, then insert further with axial pressure and turn simultaneously to the right (seen from the plug in the direction of insertation) until the bayonet lock engages.

Unplugging procedure: Push plug in further and turn left at the same time (based on the direction when insert) until the marks on plugs are shown in a straight line, then pull out the plug.

How to test finger proof in connector?

Step 1: insert fingertip of the finger proof into the front of the product until it cannot be pushed.

Step 2: insert the negative pole of the multimeter into the bottom of the product until it reach the interior terminal.

Step 3: use the positive pole of the multimeter to touch finger proof.

Step 4: if the resistance value is zero, then the finger proof didn’t reach terminal and the test is pass.

What is environmental performance?

Environmental performance includes temperature resistance, moisture resistance, vibration and impact.

Heat resistance: the highest working temperature for connector is 200.

What is single hole separation force detection?

Single hole separation force refers to the separation force of the contact part from motionless to motorial, which is used to represent the contact between the insertion pin and the socket.

What is instantaneous detection?

Some terminals are used in dynamic vibration environments.

This experiment only use to test whether static contact resistance is qualified, but it is not guaranteed to be reliable in dynamic environment.Instantaneous power failure might appear even on qualified connector in simulation environment test,so for some high reliability requirements of terminals, it is better to conduct dynamic vibration test to assess its reliability.

How do you check the quality of the terminal?

When choosing wiring terminal, must distinguish carefully:

First, look at the appearance, good product is like is a handicraft, which give a person cheerful and pleasing feelings;

Secondly, the selection of materials should be good, the insulation parts should be made of flame retardant engineering plastics and the conductive materials should not be made of iron. The most important is the thread processing. If the thread processing is not good and the torsional moment does not reach the standard, the function of wire will be lost.

There are four easy ways to test : visual (check apparence); amount of weight (if it is too light); using fire (flame retardant);try the torsion.

What is arc resistance?

Arc resistance is the ability to withstand the arc of an insulating material along its surface under specified test conditions.In the experiment, it is used to exchange high voltage with small current, with the help of electric arc between the two electrodes, which can estimate the arc resistance of the insulation material, based on the time that cost to form the conductive layer on the surface of.

What is burning resistance?

Burning resistance is the ability to resist the burning of an insulating material when it is in contact with the flame.With the increasing application of insulating materials, it is more important to improve combustion resistance of the insulator and improve the resistance of insulating materials through various means. The higher the fire resistance, the better the safety.

What is tensile strength?

It is the maximum tensile stress which borne by the sample in the tensile test.

It is the most widely used and representative test in the test for mechanical properties of insulating materials.

What is temperature rise?

When the temperature for electrical equipment is higher than the room temperature, the excess is called temperature rise. When power on, the temperature of conductor will increase until stable. The stability condition requires the temperature difference does not exceed 2.

What are security parameter of connector?

Insulation resistance, resistance to pressure, combustibility.

What is ball pressure test?

Ball pressure test is resistance to heat. Thermoduric endurance properties means materials, especially thermoplastic has properties of anti-thermal shock and anti-deformation under heated condition. The heat resistance of materials is generally verified by ball pressure test. This test applies to insulating material which use to protect electrified body.
