What are the different types of cable ends?

There are three types cable connectors in a basic cabling installation techniques: twisted-pair connectors,coaxial cable connectors and fiber-optic connectors. Generally cable connectors have a male component and a female component, except in the case of hermaphroditic connectors such as the IBM data connector.

How do I join cable ends?

Push the connector over the cable so the copper conductor sticks out. Hold the cable in one hand and the connector in the other. Then insert the conductor into the hold in the center of the connector. Continue pushing until the conductor sticks out just above the edge of the connector on the other side.

What are cable ends?

A cable connector is the component that you attach to the end of a cable so that it can plug into a port or an interface of an electronic system. The majority of connectors are either male or female gender; the males have one or more exposed pins and the female contains holes for those male pins to insert into.

What types of connectors are there?

Electrical connectors are classified into three types based on their termination ends: board-to-board connectors, cable/wire-to-cable/wire connectors, and cable/wire-to-board connectors.

How do I connect cable wires together?

A solder join – wires twisted together (not so good). Twisting the wires together and soldering is often the best method, but there are two ways of doing this. If possible, you should twist the wires in-line before soldering as this makes a stronger (and neater) join than twisting the ends together.

What is the most common cable type and connector?

Twisted pair cabling comes in two varieties: shielded and unshielded. Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) is the most popular and is generally the best option for school networks (See fig. 1).

What are the different connectors?

The six levels of interconnection typically seen in electrical connectors.

  • Board-to-Board Connectors.
  • Wire/Cable-to-Wire/Cable Connectors.
  • Wire/Cable-to-Board Connectors.

What are electrical Ends called?

An electrical connector is an electromechanical device used to create an electrical connection between parts of an electrical circuit, or between different electrical circuits, thereby joining them into a larger circuit.

What are cable connections?

Cable Connections is an industry leader in manufacturing specialized cable assemblies and custom wire harnesses for a wide range of markets.

How to install coax cable end connector fittings?

Place the connector base over the wire. Most right-angle connectors have a base piece that holds the housing together.

  • Loosen the screw inside the connector. The front portion of the connector housing has an internal screw that carries the signal.
  • Touch the conductor to the screw and tighten it.
  • Install the back housing of the connector.
  • How to fit TV Connector ends to coax cable?

    Check your already stripped cable has no loose metal shards bridging the white plastic dielectric to touch the centre conductor.

  • Line up your hex F connector,so that the bare conductor and shield of the coax cable will go through inner barrel.
  • Slide the connector down the end of the cable until resistance is felt.
  • What are the 3 types of connectors?

    USB 1.0,2.0,and 3.0 – These are the versions of USB,and every later version of the USB simply supports a better data transfer rate.

  • USB 3.1&3.2 – Still USB 3.
  • Type A USB – The common Joe USB connector that you see everywhere.
  • Type B USB – The “square type” connector that is commonly used for printers.
  • How to put the ends on a CAT6 cable?


  • Measure the Cable. Using the coil of wire,pull the necessary amount of wire for the connection you need to make.
  • Strip the Cable. Measure out 1.5 inches from one end of the wire and place the wire in the wire strippers at that location.
  • Prepare Wires.
  • Insert Wires and Crimp.
  • Terminate the Other End of the Cable.
