Conductivity, Electrical

 

(or conductivity), a physical quantity equal to the electrical conductance of a cylindrical conductor of unit length and unit cross-sectional area. The relation between conductivity σ and resistivity ρ is given by the equation σ = 1/p. Conductivity is usually measured in units of mho/m or mho/cm. The mho, also called the Siemens, is equal to the reciprocal of the ohm.

Then, test the components for insertion and extraction forces, conductivity, electrical resistance, seal isolation, and other criteria, so that a manufacturer can confidently integrate the entire connector system into its device design and move closer to the holy grail of market introduction.
It also offers a low thermal conductivity, electrical insulation, high chemical purity and resistance to corrosion from molten metal and glass.
