D-sub or D-subminiature connectors are common types of electrical components typically used in computing to help form connections on a circuit board. Taking their name from the characteristically designed D shaped metal shield, d-sub connectors have various different connection types from Crimp D-sub's to Spring Terminal D-sub's.
What are the types of D-sub Connectors we offer?
- PCB (printed circuit board): D-Sub Connectors-Are specially designed D-subs that has built-in solder points to help assist the mounting of the connector on PCB's.
- Crimp D-sub Connectors: Can help attach several wires to a single receptive connector. You can also use them to connect large cables to standard wire receptive connectors.
- IDC (insulation displacement contact)D-sub Connectors: Are designed to be connected to the conductor(s) of an insulated cable, most commonly a ribbon cable (a cable with many conducting wires running parallel to each other on the same flat plane).
- Leaded D-sub Connectors: Are connectors with wires/ leads already attached, ready for connection to boards from purchase.
- Screw Terminal D-sub Connectors: Are most commonly used in building wiring for the distribution of electricity, for example, connecting electrical switches to the mains, or to connect major appliances such as ovens.
- Solder D-sub Connectors: As their name suggests, solder D-sub connectors are designed to be connected into your circuit using solder and a soldering iron.
- Spring Terminal D-sub Connectors: Create an electrical connection that's established by clamping individual stripped wires or cables using a spring.
- Wire Wrap D-sub Connectors: are connected to PCBs (printed circuit boards) using wires wrapped around the connectors' wire posts.
- D-sub Connector Kits: D-sub connector kits usually have nuts that accept screws and are used to lock the components together and offer mechanical strain relief. Hood- the exterior shell/casing of the connector, usually made from a hard and durable metal such as zinc. Screws and inserts for securing parts together.
