Connectors change the world

Connector products began in the world war II, the mainly used in military enterprises, with the end of world war II, the world economy began to transform into people's livelihood, connector applications have been extended to various fields.

Electrical connectors are key components in countless electronic devices because they enable and protect the transmission of electrical signals. The roles they play are broad and the applications they serve vary. Although some designs are simple, connectors are usually performed in complex electrical systems. Therefore, connectors must be durable, reliable, and easy to assemble and use. Although not all electrical connectors can withstand extreme environments, the extensive connector specifications ensure that the right type of application can be found for customized devices.


The D-sub series of connectors was invented by ITT Cannon, in 1952, and is still one of the most widely used connectors today. The reason it has remained so popular is down to its simplicity both in assembly but also in the way it can be used for so many applications.

Coax Connectors

The UHF Connector was the first widely adopted Coax connector originally developed for RADAR in WWII. Since then, however, Coax Connectors have developed to today’s high-frequency communications networks. The most impressive thing about Coax is that it is simple yet so powerful.

You even find micro coax cables in modern mobile phones! The idea that a single core cable in a dielectric sheath can do things that no other cable can is a triumph in physics.

RJ45 Connectors

It is no understatement that without the RJ45 connector modern computer networks would not be the same they are today. The RJ45 connector facilitated the adoption of Ethernet and 10/100 Base-T Network protocols that have to lead to our 10GB Ethernet Cat 6a networks using the same connectors.

Push-Pull connectors

The Push-pull connector is a type of cable interconnect that provides a strong locking mechanism that is only released by squeezing the connector body, preventing accidental disconnects. The connector is cylindrical, enabling a wide range of body styles and configurations such as low or high voltage multipin, coaxial, triaxial, fluid and gas. 

Suitable for a variety of environments with high-reliability connector structure, you can see it in various industries: Medical Electronics, Instrumentation, Industrial Automation Equipment, Military Defense, Aerospace Industry, Motorsport...etc.

Imagine what it would be like without connectors. At this time, the circuit must be permanently connected with continuous conductors. For example, to connect the electronic device to the power supply, the two ends of the connecting wire must be firmly connected with the electronic device and the power supply through some method (such as welding). So, no matter to produce or use, brought a lot of inconveniences.

Take car batteries. Assuming that the battery cable is fixed and welded to the battery, the automobile manufacturer increases the workload, production time and cost for installing the battery. When the battery is damaged and needs to be replaced, the car should be sent to the maintenance station. The old one should be removed and then welded to the new one. For this reason, more labor costs should be paid. With connectors, you can save yourself a lot of trouble. Buy a new battery from the store. Disconnect the connector. This simple example illustrates the benefits of connectors. It makes the design and production process more convenient and flexible and reduces production and maintenance costs.

The main supporting fields of electrical connectors are Transportation, Communication, Network, IT, Medical Treatment, Home Appliances, etc. The rapid development of the technical level of products in the supporting fields and the rapid growth of the market strongly pull the development of connector technology. So far, the connector has developed into a series and specialized product with complete product categories, rich varieties, and specifications, diverse structure types, specialized direction subdivision, obvious industry characteristics, standard system specification.
