Ways of PCB plug-ins connection
In more complicated instruments and equipment, the connector connection method is often used. This "building block" structure not only ensures the quality of the mass production of the product, reduces the cost of the system, and provides convenience for debugging and maintenance. When the equipment fails, the maintenance personnel do not have to check the component level (that is, check the cause of the failure, trace the source to the specific components. This work takes a considerable amount of time), as long as it is determined which board is not normal, It can be replaced immediately, troubleshooting in the shortest time, reducing downtime and increasing equipment utilization. The replaced circuit board can be repaired in a sufficient amount of time and used as a spare part after repair.

1, standard pin connection
This method can be used for external connection of PCBs, especially in small instruments. The two PCBs are connected by standard pins, and the two PCBs are generally parallel or perpendicular, which is easy to achieve mass production.
2, PCB socket
In this way, the printed plug is made from the edge of the PCB, and the plug part is designed according to the size of the socket, the number of contacts, the distance of the contact, the position of the positioning hole, etc., so as to match the dedicated PCB socket. Double-layer Aluminum Based PCB.
When making the board, the plug part needs to be gold-plated to improve wear resistance and reduce contact resistance. This method is simple to assemble, interchangeable, and has good maintenance performance, and is suitable for standardized mass production. The disadvantage is that the PCB cost is increased, the PCB manufacturing precision and process requirements are high; the reliability is slightly poor, often due to the plug portion being oxidized or the socket reed aging and the contact is poor. In order to improve the reliability of the external connection, the same lead wire is often taken in parallel through the contacts on the same side or both sides of the circuit board.
The PCB socket connection method is often used for multi-board structure products. The socket and the PCB or the bottom plate have two types of reed type and pin type.
