Frequently Asked Questions

Connector Kits - General
2. Q: Why do primary kits provide both a plug and a receptacle, whereas a secondary kit provides only one connector, either a plug, or a receptacle?
A: Primary connectors are almost always used in pairs, to make a splice or to connect to a transformer. Thus it is most convenient to provide a plug and receptacle together. Secondary connectors are not always used in pairs, so it is more convenient to package them separately.
