What is a Circular Connector?
A circular connector is an electrical connector that has multi-pin interconnects. It also has circular contact interface geometries and contact housings. Designers often choose circular connectors because they are easy to connect and disconnect, allow a wide range of voltages and currents, can contain many types of contacts, can be easily weatherproofed and offer a rugged construction.
