The Allied Components team hopes you are doing well and continuing to stay safe and healthy. This month, we will look into what to consider when selecting DC power connectors, how the worldwide lockdown has reduced human-linked Earth vibrations, and what experts recommend to make working from home smarter.

What to Consider When Selecting DC Power Connectors

DC power connectors work best when properly matched, although plugging in a connector into the wrong port will not damage any equipment. The three main types of DC power connectors in the electronics industry are jacks, plugs, and receptacles. The typical configuration of a DC power jack or plug is two conductors and a center pin.
