Connector Guide Pins

Connector guide pins are components of a connector system that are used to ensure that the connector is inserted and oriented correctly. This helps to prevent both physical damage to the connector and potential electrical damage to other components in the system.

Features of connector guide pins

The arrangement of connector guide pins in a particular connector depends on the specific standard that the connector adheres to. Connector guide pins are a fundamental (and in some cases required) component of a modular connector, and may be optional components of panel- or board-mounted connector systems if guide pins are not built into the system itself. They normally do not carry any electrical signals; instead they are used to ensure that the connector is correctly inserted and in some cases to increase the mechanical strength of the connection itself.

Applications of connector guide pins

Connector guide pins are used in a variety of different connector standards, including many different circular connectors.
