Frequently Asked Questions About Our Female Cable Connector
Setting your industrial scales and indicators up will require you to use the highest quality cables and materials. To make things easier for you at SellEton, we've come up with a wide list of cables and connectors for your products, whether a floor, truck, bench, or axle scale.
Today, we'll talk about the female connector adapter. The beauty of this cable is that it was designed to be as durable as possible thanks to its stainless-steel properties and plastic covering, making it more resistant than other cables on the market.
You can get one out of two options if you want a "Type - Female" cable connector. First, you can get one end with a five-pin female connector and the other with naked cables, but you can also get your cable with a five-pin connector in each end if you're looking for a female-to-female connector.
If you have any more doubts about this F (Female) cable connector, keep reading this FAQ section. We'll do our best to answer as many questions as possible.
The primary reason why this is a cable female connector is that the port has holes instead of pins; that's it.
Female connectors are mostly common in TVs, computers, etc. The back of a CPU, for example, features a bunch of female ports, including:
In TVs, on the other hand, you can expect a female socket for the antenna, HDMI, etc.
In essence, a cable connector (Female) is the one responsible for receiving the connection that comes from a "male" wire connector.
Another example of female connectors is when you connect something to a wall socket. The socket itself would be a female connection, whereas the plug would be the "male" one.
Telling whether you have a female or male connector is fairly easy. As mentioned before, a female connector (also called a jack) comes with a center conductor and a hole. The hole is supposed to accept a pin coming from another wire/cable.
The male connector, on the other hand, is a plug that comes with a pin that's supposed to go inside the center conductor.
You can see these connectors in a wide range of connections, especially those involving signal transmissions. If you get a coaxial cable (also called coax cable), you can get two connector styles: The male connector will have a pin that sticks out of the center, and the female one will have a hole to receive that pin.
Why are they called "male" and "female" connectors, though? The main reason is to distinguish "mating" connectors. These connectors, to work properly, must have an exact match in configuration, number of pins, and size.
Instead of referring to the connectors as "plugs" or "jacks," people find it much easier to simply say the gender, as it's a more universal term.
Most of the time, you will be dealing with female sockets and male plugs. However, some countries have used different designs for their connectors/cables, so you could also see male sockets and female plugs, although it's not as common.
The indicators at SellEton often feature male sockets, while the cables work as the plug, for example.
Overall, the goal of these cables is to establish a connection between two electrical devices. The first device will be responsible for transmitting a signal or power, and the other one will receive that electricity. Moreover, the male/female configuration ensures that the connection is protected from interferences or disconnections.
In this particular case, we're offering a cable with a plastic "shield" that will protect it against any harmful elements. However, we're also including a female connector to make things easier for you.
Depending on which version you buy, you can get a female-to-female connector or a female connector and a naked end with a red, green, white, black, and yellow cable.
Make sure to evaluate your needs before making any decision. Otherwise, you may have to invest in extra accessories like a male adapter to make the cable work.
If you're getting one of SellEton's industrial scales, then make sure to review which cables and connections you need, and check its website to buy everything from the same place.
We guarantee the highest quality in our products, so rest assured that you'll be happy with the results.
If you take a tour at your workplace or home, you'll quickly notice that the cable that's always connected to the power source is female (at least most of the time), but why is that?
While some may argue that this configuration exists because of convenience, another interesting reason is that it ensures that people don't touch live conductors. Touching live conductors can often cause a short circuit, which can become a problem for both the power source and the person touching it.
The cables and connections we're offering at SellEton are among the best on the field, ensuring you have a safe and efficient experience while operating your industrial scales. Moreover, we're offering you the option to get a naked cable end so that you can connect any other adapter if you want.
If you look around, you'll quickly notice that most of your wires either have a rubber or plastic covering. Why is that?
The short answer is: To prevent yourself (and others) from getting shocked.
Remember that our bodies are capable of conducting electricity. If you were to hold a cable without any covering, you would risk the electrical current flowing through your body, which in some cases can cause you a big shock.
However, personal safety isn't the only reason why we're offering plastic-covered cables.
If we didn't cover our cables, you would risk your wires coming in contact with each other, which can cause a short circuit. Plastic, in this case, does an excellent job of insulating the conductors, so all the wires can run in the same cable without any risks of shocks and sudden fires.
Finally, keep in mind that an electric current often generates high amounts of heat. Most of the time, that heat can build up, and if the cable isn't coated, you risk any flammable materials you have around catching on fire. The plastic in our cables, however, does a great job of dissipating heat and preventing fires.
Industrial weighing systems and indicators will sometimes require special connections to work properly, so you can't simply get any cable and connector.
Thanks to the durable materials of our cables, the electrical current will be able to pass as intended from the power source to the scale, ensuring it powers up correctly and doesn't suffer from any damage in the long run.
Now, should you get the 5+naked cable or the 5+5 cable? It depends on your needs.
We suggest you get the 5+naked cable if you're planning on installing another connector like a male one. However, if you need a female-to-female cable, then you can get the version with the two five-pin connectors and save time.
If you don't know which option will suit your needs the best, then we suggest you give us a call or send us an email. Our team will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about this product and all the other ones offered on our website.
You can expect this cable to work for a few of the most popular indicators sold at SellEton. If you're only looking for a replacement cable, we suggest you get the double-prong cable.
On the other hand, if you're going straight for the junction box, you will need to buy the option that comes with one bare end.
All you have to do is check the port on your indicator and see if this product is the right one for it.
Even though many of the products already come with a cable, you never know when you'll need a spare, so we suggest you get one if you want to save time in your operations.
Is It Possible to Connect a Male Cable to the Wrong Female Connector?
Yes. Some people try to jam male cables into an incorrect port to see if they work. First, they could get any of the connectors damaged, and in the worst-case scenario, you could damage the devices or some of their parts.
Thankfully, it's hard to get it wrong when it comes to most female/male connectors. All it takes is a quick check on your products to see which cables are needed.
