Fusion of Connectors and Sensors

There is a natural connection between connectors and sensors, so expanding the product line of electronic sensors is an attractive proposal for connector companies.

Many sensors require milspec connectors and wiring harnesses to connect. Connector manufacturers can reduce internal discrete wires, flexible circuit boards, and cable assemblies. Highly demanding industrial and avionics sensors usually integrate connectors and sensors.

Although the current sensors and connectors in OEMs are usually determined by different people, a new opportunity has come. Equipment manufacturers often try to reduce the number of their suppliers, if connector suppliers can provide sensors is an attractive option.

The long-term cooperative relationship can provide more extensive technical support. On a global scale, it is a wise choice to find a reliable military grade connector and sensor supplier. Traditional sensor manufacturers around the world can usually only provide some products. In such a fast-growing and highly differentiated market, the time for integration is ripe.

Chinese electrical connector manufacturers are facing a rare development opportunity. The Internet of Things, big data, intelligence, 5G, Industry 4.0, driverless, telemedicine and other emerging fields and the arrival of the new economy, the application space for sensors is extremely large .

The complementary natural fusion of connectors and MEMS sensors will be an inevitable trend. In the future, more connectors will appear in the market with a modular, miniaturized, and functional appearance.
