This page describes the formalised structure of a connector page and how to go about creating one.

Basic Page Information and Categorisation

Page Location

Pages for connectors should be located under the name of the connector, (e.g. Phone connector or VL connector).


Connector pages use the {{Infobox connector}} template to provide the basic information about the connector. Documentation on the fields available in this infobox are available at the Template:Infobox connector page.

Basic Description

Before the first section there should be a basic description of the connector.


Connectors are stored under the Category:Connector category.

Adding Detailed Information to a Connector Page

Connector pages maybe improved beyond the basic structure described above.

Additional Common Sections

  • Characteristics
    • Mechanical
    • Electrical
  • Common uses with links to pinout pages

Things to Avoid

  • Links to distributors or online stores
  • Personal reviews of the connectors
  • Connector pinouts (These should end up in a pinout page)
