What are the names of DC jacks?

DC jacks come in various shapes and sizes, and they are often referred to by different names based on their design and application. Here are some common names used to describe DC jacks:


1.Barrel Jack: This is one of the most common types of DC jacks, characterized by its cylindrical shape. It consists of a cylindrical outer sleeve and a central pin or connector inside. Barrel jacks are available in different sizes, with diameters typically ranging from 2.1mm to 5.5mm. They are widely used in consumer electronics, power adapters, and electronic devices.

2.Coaxial Power Connector: Coaxial power connectors are similar to barrel jacks but have a concentric design with an inner pin surrounded by an outer sleeve. They are often used in audio equipment, CCTV cameras, and other electronic devices requiring a reliable power connection.

3.Miniature Barrel Jack: Also known as mini barrel jacks, these are smaller versions of standard barrel jacks, typically with diameters ranging from 1.3mm to 2.0mm. They are commonly found in smaller electronic devices such as portable audio players, digital cameras, and handheld gaming consoles.

4.Micro Barrel Jack: Micro barrel jacks are even smaller than miniature barrel jacks, with diameters typically ranging from 0.7mm to 1.0mm. They are used in ultra-compact electronic devices such as Bluetooth headsets, wearable gadgets, and miniature cameras.

5.DC Plug: This is a generic term used to describe any type of connector designed to carry DC power. DC plugs can come in various shapes and sizes, including barrel-shaped, cylindrical, rectangular, or square. They are used in a wide range of applications, including power supplies, chargers, and adapters.

6.Power Connector: Power connectors refer to any type of connector used to supply electrical power to a device. They can include DC jacks, AC power plugs, USB connectors, and more. Power connectors come in different shapes and sizes depending on the voltage, current, and application requirements.

7.DC Socket: This term is often used interchangeably with DC jack and refers to the female part of the DC power connection found on electronic devices. DC sockets are designed to accept the plug of a power supply or adapter.

8.Panel Mount Jack: Panel mount jacks are DC jacks designed to be mounted on a panel or chassis. They are often used in industrial equipment, control panels, and electronic enclosures where a secure and reliable power connection is required.

These are just some of the common names used to describe DC jacks based on their design, size, and application. Understanding these terms can help you identify the right type of DC jack for your electronic device or power supply needs.
