Types of Electrical Power Connectors

Posted on May 28, 2020 David Atkinson Electrical Connectors

If you've used a laptop, tv, phone, hairdryer, or pretty much just any type of electronic item, then you’re familiar with what a power connector is and what it can be used for. Some people may not think too much about what kind of power connector they might need for their device as they will usually just use whatever connector piece accompanies the product that they have. However, because there are many different types with different strengths, it’s valuable to know what you’re buying, what the value is of your power connector and how much power it can give (as well as how fast). In this article, you can read more about electrical power connectors and their many different categories.


For the most part, electrical force connectors are categorized by how much voltage they convey. There are three classifications of electrical connectors: light-obligation, medium-obligation, and substantial. Every classification refers to how much voltage the connector can deal with. 

One classification of a power connector is the light duty connector. A light-duty electrical power connector can convey up to 250 volts (V) of a low flow. In most cases, the contact obstruction doesn't remain low and stable, if the capacity of the gadget to transmit current might be undermined. It is essential to limit the proximity of outside contaminants on connector contacts, (for example, earth, residue, and water) since that part is inclined to oxidation and contaminants. Power connectors for vehicles, radio and specialized gadgets, and those proposed for fundamental instruments are named light-duty power connectors. 

A medium-duty power connector conveys a more significant level electrical flow at up to 1,000 V. Not at all like low-duty connectors, These types of variations can experience the ill effects of electrical wear if the contact material isn't constantly monitored to forestall automatic welding and disintegration. Along these lines, legitimate material choice is important for guaranteeing the gadget's efficiency and reliability. Medium-duty can be found in a variety of household and modern applications.
