What are the environmental factors affecting industrial connectors?

In traditional industries, industrial connectors are often used. If the connectors are placed in a harsh and humid environment, they will be corroded over a long period of time, and will cause more undesirable problems, which will affect the connection. The connection output of the device. In severe cases, the connection pins in the socket of the industrial board-to-board connector may even completely rot, and it is unacceptable for other objects to be immersed and splashed. This article mainly explains four environmental factors affecting industrial connectors.
What are the environmental factors affecting industrial connectors?
1. Vibration
When placed in an extreme vibration environment, the standard connector will react. After a period of time, the connection between the plug and the socket will gradually wear out, and the pins will sink at the connection point, reducing reliability. Moreover, after such abrasion, if exposed to a steam environment, it will further cause corrosion.
2. Extreme temperature
Current connectors generally can tolerate a temperature difference of -10-60 degrees, which is no problem for most office and general industrial environments. However, if placed in an extremely harsh temperature environment, temperatures exceeding the range can cause reliability problems.
3. Corrosive materials
Corrosive gases and liquids are often encountered in industrial environments. Such as oil, gas and chemicals can corrode the outer connector cover, the metal feet of the plug and socket, the cable jacket, etc.
4. Electromagnetic interference
Severe electromagnetic interference sources usually include production equipment and power channels near data channels. Machines and electrical paths generate electric fields, which can be coupled into the data path to cause noise and destroy the integrity of the data signal.
With the development of current technology, not only precision electronic connectors, but also industrial connectors are becoming more and more demanding. Paying attention to details in all aspects is a necessary skill for connector manufacturers.
