    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
