General Specifications
   Gender       
   Your choices are...         
   Male / Plug       Male connectors or plugs are often referred to as header or free connectors. In coaxial RF connectors, the plug is normally the movable portion and is usually attached to a cable or removable sub-assembly. In shell type multiple-contact connectors, the plug usually contains the socket contacts and is mounted on the "hot" (rack) side of the system. Plugs mate with receptacles, jacks, outlets, etc. 
   Female / Jack       Female connectors or jacks are connecting devices into which plugs are inserted to make circuit connections. 
   Other       Other unlisted gender type. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Terminal Options      Terminals are devices designed to terminate a conductor to be affixed usually to a post, stud, chassis, or other conductor or the like in order to establish electrical connection.
   Your choices are...         
   Cage Clamp       Electrical connections are made using a cage clamp. 
   Crimp       Crimp is the physical compression (deformation) of a contact wire barrel around a conductor to make an electrical and mechanical connection to the conductor. 
   IDC       Insulation displacement connectors (IDC) slice through the cable insulation to make a connection. Electrical connection is made when an insulated conductor is forced into a restrictive slot in the connection part of a contact, during which time the insulation is displaced, and the bare wire engages the sides of the slot. IDC are mass termination connectors for flat cables with contacts that displace the conductor insulation to complete termination. They eliminate the need to strip insulation. 
   PCB Solder / Solder Pin       In PCB solder or solder pin termination, electrical connection is made by soldering wires or pins onto a printed circuit board (PCB). 
   Screw       Electrical connections are made using screws. 
   Screw-on or Lugs       Electrical connections are made using screw-on or lugs. 
   Solder Cup       A solder cup is the end of a terminal or contact in which the conductor is inserted prior to being soldered. In solder cup terminations, soldering the connector onto the mounting location makes electrical connection. 
   Tabs       Electrical connections are made through quick connect tabs. 
   Through Hole / Pin       Through-hole technology (THT) mounts components on printed circuit boards by inserting component leads through holes in the board and then soldering. In pin termination, components are mounted on PCBs without soldering. 
   Wire Wrap       Electrical connection is made by using a special tool to wrap a solid stripped or unstripped wire around a terminal post containing a series of sharp edges. 
   Other       Other unlisted terminal types.

   Mounting Style       
   Your choices are...         
   Bulkhead Mount       The connector has a plate (bulkhead) used to mount the device. 
   Cable End       The connector is mounted at the end of an electrical cable. 
   End Launch       End launch connectors are similar to right angle PC mounts in that the connector interface is parallel to the surface of the PC board. End launchers, however, are attached to the end or edge of the PC board by soldering. 
   2-hole Flange Mount       Flange mounted connectors are attached to panels by bolting the flange or riveting it in place through the two holes in the flange surface. 
   4-hole Flange Mount       Flange mounted connectors are attached to panels by bolting the flange or riveting it in place through the four holes in the flange surface. 
   PC Mount       Connectors directly attach to the printed circuit board through pre-drilled holes in the board. Soldering permanently attaches connectors to PCB traces. 
   Receptacle / Dummy Receptacle       Connectors with receptacle mounting are used in applications where the connector is required to fit a panel cutout. Dummy receptacles are receptacles that do not have provisions for attaching conductors. They are generally used for storage of a cable assembly connector plug. 
   In-line or Cable Receptacle       Intended for cable connecting - typically mated with a straight or 90-degree plug. 
   Jam Nut Receptacle       Intended for "D" shaped holes. 
   Solder / Weld Mount Receptacle       Intended for higher-pressure systems and permanent mounting. 
   Surface Mount (SMT)       Surface mount technology (SMT) places small components on the surface of a printed circuit board. Soldering permanently attaches connectors to PCB traces. Unlike PC mount connectors, however, SMT connectors do not require drilled holes in the PCB. Using smaller components allows for higher frequencies of operation, smaller board size, etc.   
   Wall or Box Mount Receptacle       Typically flanged and threaded for an accessory (backshell) and intended for permanent mounting. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary styles. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Contacts The maximum current or maximum voltage defined by an approval organization may differ from the supplier's maximums. In many cases, the product can be used safely at an unapproved level. Check with the supplier for specific usage details.
   Number of Contacts       The number of contacts is the number of conductive elements that mate with a corresponding element to provide an electrical path. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Contact Size (AWG)       An electrical contact is the termination of an electrical wire in the connector's pin or socket.  Contact size, also referred to as "Termination Size," is the maximum diameter wire the connector can accommodate.    Wire size is measured according to the American Wire Gauge (AWG) standard. In North America, wire area is measured by the American Wire Gauge (AWG) to indicate conductor size. The AWG is used to measure certain conductors including copper. The higher the AWG number the thinner the wire. This is because AWG stems from a measurement that represented the number of times the copper wire was run through a wire machine that reduced the diameter of the wire. Thus 24-gauge wire went through the machine 6 more times than 18-gauge wire. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
