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. 
   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.
   Geometry       
   Your choices are...         
   Straight       The connector does not bend. 
   Right Angle       The connector is bent at a right angle. 
   Other       Other unlisted geometry. 
   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.
   Military Connector       Military connectors (MIL-SPEC) are shell-type connectors built in accordance with military specifications. Their design protects the connection from environmental factors, allowing them to be used in military and aerospace applications. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.

Performance 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.
   Voltage Rating       Voltage rating is the maximum operating voltage. 
   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.
   Current Rating       Current rating is the maximum, recommended, continuous flow of electrical current. 
   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.
   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.
