Modern military and commercial aircraft use a large number of electrical and electronic systems to monitor and fly the aircraft, manage the engine, provide communication, etc. at the same time, coupled with some entertainment equipment, the installation of these systems means that each aircraft needs hundreds or even thousands of connector devices.
As we all know, manufacturers in the aerospace field have the highest requirements for the electrical and electronic interconnection industry. As with the military, the selection and use of aerospace connectors
are greatly influenced by standards and approvals, overall performance and weight, and space savings.
The location and application determine the requirements to be met by the connector. These requirements include dielectric withstand voltage, operating temperature, insulation resistance and electromagnetic interference resistance, vibration / shock, flammability and smoke / toxicity, etc. Generally, the most important requirement for airborne electronic connector is to be able to handle shock, vibration, general durability and temperature cycle.
