Technical FAQs

Ask a Question

Are there Gender Changers that have opposite genders, like DB25 male/female?

Issue:
There may be need for an adapter that has a male connector on one end and a female connector on the other.

Product Line:
Cables and Connectivity Solutions

Environment:
All versions and serial ranges.

Cause:
These help lengthen the life expectancy of a port that experiences a high rate of connecting and disconnecting cables.

Resolution:
Yes but they are not really Gender Changers. They are typically called Port Protectors or Port Extenders. They can be used to help lengthen the life expectancy of a port that is repeatedly connected to. They can also be used to add height to a recessed port.
