1. Purpose of the use of automotive connectors

In order to ensure the better driving of the car, the reliability of the automotive connector can be reflected in the tightness during use, the anti-spark performance during driving, as well as the shielding and temperature control performance.

In this field, the international popular management standard is IP67, which is also the highest level of tightness in the current car.

Although the requirements for waterproofing are different in different parts of the car, many car manufacturers will choose IP67 to ensure the sealing performance of the connector.

2. The application of automotive connectors

In the driving of the car, the power supply is a very important source of energy, closely related to the normal operation of the engine. Therefore, in the power system of the car, automotive connector has different divisions, so that certain airtight measures can be implemented between the male connector and the device, between the male connector and the cable, between the male and female ends, and between the female connector and the cable.

In order to ensure the sealing performance of automotive connectors, the sealing ring is a commonly used tool. In addition to sealing, it can also achieve the fixing effect between different holes, which can ensure not only the stable operation of automotive equipment, but also the waterproof performance during work. Most of the sealing rings are made of silicone rubber, which is made of liquid silicon and solid silicon after a certain chemical change.

Electronic circuit technology plays an important role in the stable operation of automotive applications such as automotive infotainment systems and control systems. In order to ensure the stable operation of electronic circuits, many shielding technologies are applied in the production of automobiles.

These shielding technologies not only play a protective role in the electronic circuit of the car, but also feature the anti-interference and anti-radiation properties on the components of the car. In addition, it can also protect the stable operation of the automotive connector. These shielding technologies can be divided into two types in automobiles: inner shielding and outer shielding.

When using the outer shield to protect the automotive connector, two identical shielding shells are usually assembled together to form a shielding layer, and the length of which can cover the entire length of the connector. There are enough locking pieces to ensure the reliable installation of the shielding layer. In addition, the shielding materials used should not only be treated by electroplating, but also be treated to prevent chemical corrosion.

Adhering to IATF 16949 automotive quality management certification, Shinelinkconn has accumulated several years of experience in the R&D and production of automotive connectors with lots of automotive connector products having successfully exported to BMW, Mercedes-Benz, BYD and other well-known brands. We always persist in technological innovation, and strive to provide customers with high-quality and cost-effective products.
