Aviation connector, as the name implies, refer to electronic components used in the aerospace industry.

Aviation connectors are mostly used in the fields of power transmission and signal transmission, and contain many different types of connectors, such as GX connectors. Therefore, the aviation plug and socket does not refer to a plug and socket of one model. This time, let’s get to know the GX series in the aviation plug and socket.

GX connectors can be used for electrical connections between instrumentation and electronic devices or interconnections between wires and cables. GX connectors are threaded, stable in electrical conductivity and have a waterproof function.

Also, they are safe and reliable. Firstly, they were used in the aviation sector to meet the requirements of mobile or vibration environments. With the development of production technology and the reduction of costs, the civilian sector has also begun to be universally applicable. So now GX connectors are widely used in aviation, navigation, computer, communications, petroleum exploration, transportation, machinery and electronics fields.

Product shape

There are three types of GX series and they are connected by threaded metal housing.
