A car’s electrical system contains 100s of individual parts such as electrical connectors that are used to form a continuous path for electrical current to flow.
Most Electrical connectors have two main parts – the housing, and terminals for making the connections:
Housing – The housing is the structure or case used to contain the terminals, ensure stability of the connections and protect the electrical contacts from short-circuiting and environmental hazards. Connector housings are normally made of moulded plastic, but other insulating materials like ceramics are also used.
Terminals – Terminals are the pins in a connector which provide electrical conduction to make the connections secure. They are almost always composed of a metal, but some of them use other conductive materials (carbon, silicon, etc.).
Auto electronic connectors for use in automobiles must be tough and reliable. As they are often placed in parts of an automobile that are open to the elements, they are typical very well sealed against dust ingress and moisture, and usually have a good degree of heat resistance. Also, due to the vibration factors of being installed in a vehicle, the connectors will often have secure locking systems built into the plug and socket to prevent unwanted disconnect.
