Connectors

Cable joiners

Joiners are essential when working with wires and cables in awkward environments. Distrelec’s stock comes in a range of sizes and capacities to fit your needs.

Splices

The process of splicing is to separate a cable so that two end terminals can be connected to their respective cable conductors. Splicing cassettes sold by Distrelec are the housing for the beginning or the end of cable transmission paths.

Junction boxes

When two or more cables are carrying an electrical current, a junction box is an ideal place for protecting the junction and also to be easily found when maintenance needs to take place.

What are connectors?

Connectors are electrical components that connect two devices on a domestic or industrial level. Electrical current, signals or voltage flow through from one device to another using a connector. Electrical connectors contain a male and female part each used to secure a connection between devices and cables. Connectors are traditionally identified with an assigned gender – male and female.

Male connector

The male part, also known as the male plug of the connector, contains metal contacts. Contacts are pins that secure a firm connection with electrical conductors. Male connections house their own inputs.

Female connector

The female part, also known as the socket, contains hollow metal contacts. These contacts accept male plugs, pins and other inputs from a range of different devices.
