Finding the right electrical connector can be a challenge when you need electrical equipment to work, especially when you’re not sure which part you need.


One of the most common components required is electrical connectors. They join electrical circuits together, connecting wires to each other or an electrical terminal. They may be small, but they’re essential components of an electrical circuit, allowing for easier assembly, manufacturing, repairs and modifications.


We’re here to help you easily identify the right component for the job.


When is an electrical connector required?


Electrical connectors are the simple solution for technical issues.


Scenarios include:


  • a new device needing power or a signal
  • an existing electrical connector being damaged
  • there’s already an electrical connector present, but the mating half is required


Connectors can be temporary or permanent.


How to find the right electrical connector


Identifying the right electrical connector can be difficult, especially if you have no idea what you need or have a very old part that needs replacing. It’s daunting facing a catalogue of hundreds of connectors, each with their own unique features such as size, pin-count, power rating, locking mechanism and cost.


The easiest step you can take to finding the right electrical connector is by speaking to an expert.


Here at Top Components, we make it our mission to identify the part you require, and we’ll let you know the information we need from you to do so. We’ll often narrow it down from a simple picture or to understand its use.
