1. M16 Connector: The Perfect Solution for Super Multi-core Application Scenarios

    M16 AISG Connector

    The M16 connector was the first connection system produced by Binder, and it has been used in the audio industry for over 50 years. Even today, the M16 connector is considered a "matter of course" connection solution, suitable for a wide range of indoor applications. Thanks to continuous development and improvement, the M16 connector is now the ideal choice of specifiers who are looking for an economical, efficient, rugged, and durable screw-locking connector that can accommodate up to 24 contacts (with or without EMI shielding).

    The Metabee M16 connector was initially developed to meet the requirements of the German Standardization Association (DIN Standards), which established the standards for circular connectors for analog audio signals. They have been widely used for many years and have gained consumer recognition through the audio industry, commonly referred to

  4. 3 Major Differences Between M8 and M12 Connectors

    M8 M12 connector

    M8 and M12 connectors are widely used in industrial automation and machinery. They can transfer power, signals and data and are therefore essential in ensuring the reliability of communication and control systems.

    M8 connectors have M8*1 thread, threaded connections, and IP67 protection rating and are typically available in 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 pin. M8 connector cables are available in PVC (plain) or PUR (oil and abrasion-resistant) materials. M8 connectors are rugged and reliable, with high resistance to vibration, shock and moisture. They are often used in harsh environments where other connectors may fail. M8 connect sensors, actuators and other devices in industrial automation applications.

    M12 connectors have a thread of M12*1, which is threaded to

  5. Principle of High Voltage Interlock Loop and Troubleshooting

    Principle of High Voltage Interlock Loop and Troubleshooting

    There is no doubt that new energy vehicles are one of the popular development directions in the passenger car field at present. New energy vehicles are significantly different from traditional fuel vehicles. In particular, pure electric vehicles will not be able to perceive their working condition and judge the safety status of the vehicle through obvious shaking, smell, heat and other ways like fuel vehicles. Therefore, other approaches are needed to ensure the safety and reliability of the vehicle during operation. High-voltage insulation detection and high-voltage interlock loop are essential technical solutions.

    At the same time, in order to ensure that the high-voltage harness of each

    HVIL System in Electric Vehicles

    In the high-voltage circuit of an electric vehicle, the main electrical component of the hvil system is the high-voltage connector. However, the manual maintenance switch (MSD) is a human-operated element that serves as the electrical interface for circuit turn-on/break-off.

    On the one hand, it initiates the protective measure of safely disconnecting the high-voltage electricity when the circuit of the high-voltage system is disconnected, or its integrity is damaged. On the other hand, it is used to confirm the integrity of the entire high-voltage system.

  8. Definitive Guide to Circular Connectors: 7 Crucial Points You Need to Master

    circular connector

    Definition of Circular Connector

    Circular connectors, called circular air plugs or circular interconnects, are rugged, cylindrical, multi-pin electronic connectors for interconnecting devices. Because of the natural ruggedness provided by their cylindrical construction, circular connectors are ideal for use in harsh environments where moisture, dust or vibration are present.

    The contacts of these connectors are used to transmit data and power. They typically include various types, such as low-frequency ring connectors, RF coaxial connectors and audio connectors. They are available in different sizes and configurations, from simple small to large complex sizes. Depending on the application, there are different numbers of pins and sockets.

    Circular connectors consist of two parts, the plug design and the
