(EN) – CONNECTORS TERMINOLOGY | Tenet Technetronics’ Blogspot

Technical jargon can be great—it certainly weeds out the experts from the novices—but isn’t it convenient when connector terminology reflects humankind?

Numerous connector parts, pieces, and actions are named after familiar human parts, pieces, and actions that most everyone is familiar with: male, female, housing, shield, mating, etc. Anyone (anyone over the age of ten, I’ll say) can hear this vocabulary and get a strong picture in their head of the essence of it. And with all these words, connector terminology refers to the same (or a very similar) thing as the human word.
