Glossary of Terms for Automotive connectors. Basic Terms Connector housing - the main body of the the connector. This is the part to which the terminal pins are inserted. This referrers to either side of a connector, it is gender neutral. Gender - The gender of the connector is determined not from the Plug or Cap but the gender of the terminals. While a connector seams to slide into another, this may not be a male connector. Gender determination comes from terminal. Terminal - A conductive part of a connector that is crimped onto a properly stiped wire. Contact - See Terminal Tab Contact - Male Terminal Receptacle Contact - Female Terminal Cap Housing Plug Housing Cavity - The area of the connector that he terminal is inserted. These are what gives a connector is maximum pin count. De-pin - The act of with drawing a terminal from a connector to facilitate repair or modification. Retention Finger - a spring like device usually molded into a connector. This holds the pin in-place while it is being worked on until the TPA is re-inserted. This is usually the part that needs to be depressed to de-pin a connector terminal. TPA - Terminal Position Assurance - This is the retainer plastic piece that must be removed prior to de-pining or re-pining a connector. CPA - Connector Position Assurance. Similar to a TPA, a CPA is a lock a that prevents a mating connector from un-mating. Plug - Typically the Female connector housing. This connector holds the female terminals and is usually inserted into the Cap. Cap -Typically the male connector housing. This connector holds the male terminals and is usually the gender that is PCB mounted. (Electronic modules.) Key - The plastic protrusions from plug or cap housing that prevents a connector from the same series (same cavity count) from mating with this connector Contact Point number - Cxxxa found in FORD TIS wiring diagrams, This is the address of the mating connector as a unit, it does not address either gender individually Sealed - Connector is designed with rubber grommets to keep moisture away from contacts. Unsealed - Connector is not designed with rubber grommets to keep moisture away from contacts. Orientation tabs - Protrusion from a terminal to facilitate proper orientation during insertion into connector housing Header - Terminal contacts in ONLY a PCB mounted connector.
