What Makes a Metal Connector Stand Out from the Crowd

In general, the cable side plug is used in conjunction with a complimentary receptacle, or socket, as it is sometimes called. Additionally, the cable plug can also be coupled with an adapter, when using it in situations that call for a relay that is often found on the machine side to form a connection set.

Connectors make it easy to connect and disconnect wiring components multiple times without the need to solder or crimp wires in place permanently, making the ability of a connector to easily attached and detached from its mating socket one of its most important features.

A metal connector takes all the attributes of a regular connector outlined above and adds the added protection and durability of hardened metal that a regular plastic housing just cannot compete with, whether that be galvanized or stainless depends on the job.
