Understanding FAKRA Connector Types

What is FAKRA?

FAKRA is the abbreviation of "Fachkreis Automobil" in German, and it was originally used for car radio antenna connections. Now FAKRA has become a common standard RF connector and is widely used in the automobile industry. FAKRA connectors are typically embedded within a plastic housing that features multiple color codes for easy identification and unique keying to prevent mismatching. Also, these FAKRA connectors  have to lock to ensure that the connectors are installed in place.
