Connectors are used on electrical wiring harnesses and are essentially enclosures (i.e., shells) which house contacts with wires. The electrical connection into the system at the contact termination is either a soldered or crimped connection (which is removable from the connector using a special tool). The shell and insert may be moisture resistant or a … Continue reading “What is the difference in a plug and a receptacle?”
