Correct Use and Safety of Avionics Connectors

Generally speaking, if the avionics connector is not higher than the rated voltage, it can be used, but you still need to be cautious in the use process. After all, if it is used improperly, it may cause some unpredictable losses. The personnel explain in detail how to use this connector safely and correctly? How to improve the safety of use?

1. How to use avionics connectors safely and correctly?

First of all, you need to observe the various signs on some products. The signs above can guide people how to install correctly and ensure the normal use of the product. Generally, avionics connectors will indicate the rated current, rated voltage and other parameters in more obvious places, so if beyond the scope of these signs, they should not be used.

The size of the device is also very important. If the size of the product does not match, it will cause poor contact, misinsertion, etc., which will not only cause damage to the device, but also cause accidents. Therefore, you should determine the connector and whether the converters match.

It is necessary for electrical components to prevent electric shock. It can avoid some accidents. When the plug of the avionics connector is fully or partially inserted into the socket, the live part of the plug should not be touched. Some plugs have a protective door, so it is necessary to avoid single-pole or probe insertion.

In addition, the socket assembly of the avionics connector should be flexible, which can ensure the contact pressure of the plug pin, and the socket should have strong wear resistance and corrosion resistance, so as to ensure the plug and socket have good contact.

The power cord should have enough cross-sectional area to prevent short circuit, leakage and other problems caused by the heating of the power cord.

2. How to improve the safety of avionics connectors?

The use of avionics connectors is extremely stringent for environmental requirements. For example, if it needs to be used in a high-altitude and low-pressure environment, then a special treatment is required for the product. In some cases, the voltage will be relatively abnormal. In this case, use the connection directly The effect is not ideal, and there may even be potential safety hazards. At this time, it is very important to handle the pressure.

The use of avionics connectors should meet the requirements for temperature. If the temperature is too high, the components may be damaged, but putting it under a very low temperature will also make the performance of the connector impossible. Effectively, it may even cause cracks in the external insulation system in severe cases.

When using the connector, you should do a good job of sealing. If the connector is exposed to the humid air for a long time, it may cause a short circuit, even a safety accident. Therefore, if you want to be safe, the sealing must not be ignored.

Sometimes, the place where the connector is used is corrosive. In order to meet the requirements of the use environment, it is necessary to do a good job of anti-corrosion of the insulating layer.

Anything has a service life, if it is not well protected, then the service life will be much lower than it should have. As an electronic original, the avionics connector should meet the requirements of the product itself in the environment and requirements for its use, and be maintained during use.
