Connectors are very important accessories in electrical equipment, and the quality of connectors directly affects the reliability and performance of the entire circuit. Therefore, when choosing connectors, it is also very important to choose suitable copper materials. So, what kind of copper material is most suitable for connectors?
First of all, phosphor bronze strip is a copper material with a copper content of up to 99.9%. It has good conductivity and thermal conductivity. Its strength is slightly higher than that of electrolytic copper, and it also has good fatigue resistance. In an environment with a temperature not exceeding 100°C, it has strong corrosion resistance. Therefore, phosphor bronze strip is commonly used to manufacture connectors that need to withstand high current, such as RF connectors, aviation connectors, automotive electronic connectors, etc.
On the other hand, tin phosphor bronze strip is a copper alloy material with a tin content of about 5-8%. Compared with phosphor bronze strip, it has excellent strength, hardness, and wear resistance. At the same time, tin phosphor bronze strip also has good corrosion resistance and can be used in relatively harsh environments. Due to its higher hardness than phosphor bronze strip, it is often used to manufacture connectors that need to be wear-resistant and durable, such as machine tool connectors.
Comparing the two materials, the conductivity of phosphor bronze strip is superior to tin phosphor bronze strip. However, tin phosphor bronze strip has higher hardness, strength, and wear resistance than phosphor bronze strip. Therefore, according to different needs, the choice can be made based on specific application scenarios.
In summary, phosphor bronze strip and tin phosphor bronze strip are both commonly used materials for manufacturing electronic connectors. When choosing, it is necessary to consider factors such as the operating environment of the connector, the required conductivity, as well as fixing force and connection stability.
