The general connectors can be divided into three types, such as wire-to-board, board-to-board and wire-to-wire. Let’s take a look at their differences and applications.

  • Wire-to-board Connectors

It’s a connector that connected wires and circuit board, which main function is to transmit power and signal. The wire-to-board connector is arguably the ancestor of all connectors. Depending on the use and requirements, there are numerous types of line-to-board. But in the information industry, it is mostly based on the distance of the pin as well the transmission of current and voltage to distinguish.

The main applications of wire-to-board connector include commercial electronic equipment, household appliances and other general industrial and commercial areas using auxiliary circuits.

  • Board-to-board Connectors

At present the board-to-board connector has the strongest transmission capacity among all connector products. The main spacing of the board to board connector is 0.4mm, 0.5mm, 0.635mm, 0.8mm, 1.00m and 1.27mm.

Board-to-board connectors are mainly used in electrical power system, communication network, financial manufacturing, industrial automation, medical facility, office equipment, intelligent household electrical appliance, military industry manufacture and other industries.

  • Wireto wire Connectors

It includes two forms of wire-to-cable or cable-to-cable, the defining feature is two single-thread individual or a permanent connection between the corresponding leads of the two cables. This type of permanent connection is common in fixed-connection of wire-to wire connections and IDC connections.

Wire-to-wire connectors are mainly used in automotive, communications, consumer electronics, data processing, industrial machinery and other fields.
