DIN Standard 46237
The codes listed are only for locating the correct connector or terminal in the image below.
Connectors connect wires to other connectors. Terminals connect wires to other devices. You will often hear the terms used interchangeably. Butt connectors connect two wires together.
Connectors are used in pairs referenced as “Male” and “Female”. A receptacle (female) is designed to receive a corresponding plug (male).
Whenever possible, the insulated female connector should be connected to the energized wire (the wire that provides power to the device), while the male connector should be connected to the load wire (the wire connected to the device which uses the power). This helps ensure that the exposed metal of the male end is never energized when free of the female receptacle.
The Monkey Wrench is the precursor to the modern adjustable wrench. It shares many of the same features.
The pipe wrench (or Stillson wrench, after the inventor Daniel Stillson) is a tool for working with iron pipes and pipe fittings without facets. There are significant differences between a pipe wrench and a monkey wrench or an adjustable wrench, which reflect the differences in the tasks they are used for.
First, the jaws of a pipe wrench have teeth. This allows the tool to “bite into” the round pipe or fitting in order to transfer the torque. Toothed jaws can easily “round out”, or wear down the corners of, a faceted fitting, so a pipe wrench is a poor choice for those.
Second, the outer/upper jaw is the moveable jaw. That, combined with loose-fitting adjustment collar, allows the head to move about when the tool isn’t under tension. With practice, this setup can operate similar to a ratcheting wrench, where the pipe wrench slides around the fitting on the back swing, then bites down again to turn the pipe on the forward swing.
