Male Connection

Definition - What does Male Connection mean?

A Male Connection is a spindle, shaft or cylindrical bar which can be attached to a cable, wire or a piece of hardware having one or more unshielded or exposed electrical terminal or terminals constructed in a way that the Male Connector could be inserted into the receptacle, called female connector. This ensures reliable electrical and physical connection. The most common connection has two or three prong plugs attached to the cord's end for electrical appliances.
