A Standard Electrical Connector is a standardized type of electrical connector designed to ensure standard compatibility when assembling two pieces of electrical equipment. These standardized connectors are used in a variety of applications and industries, including: medical, industrial, aerospace, home, and automotive. They provide a safe and secure connection between two pieces of equipment while reducing the risk of fire and other hazards. Standard Electrical Connectors are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and dimensions depending on their application and purpose. Examples include: power cords and plugs, coaxial connectors, and modular plugs. They are typically composed of two parts – a plug and a socket – which are designed to mate, or connect, with one another.
