At present, there are different specifications and types of transition joints on the market. The most important types of transition joints are metric transition joints and inch transition joints. There are also many differences between them. Here is how to distinguish them:

1. From the point of view of the specification unit
The unit of the diameter specification of the inch transition joint (that is, the American system) is inches, and the unit of the pitch specification is expressed as the number of teeth per inch, and the unit of the diameter specification of the metric transition joint is millimeters, which is the same as the pitch unit, that is, the metric length unit.

2. From the point of view of the diameter of the joint
The diameter of the screw head of the inch transition joint is 9.3MM, which is smaller than the 9.7 mm of the metric screw head.





3. From the appearance
For example, from the F type two, it can be found that the inch transition joint has a relatively small step, while the metric transition joint is flat. Moreover, the shape of the outer opening of the nut for the British transition is cylindrical, while the outer opening of the metric nut is a regular hexagon.


4. From the perspective of applicable standards
The metric system is obviously the domestic standard, while the imperial system is the international standard.


5. From the perspective of thread
Metric transition joints are internal threads, and inch transition joints are external threads.


6. From the point of view of the place of production
Most of the metric transition joints are domestically produced, and most of the imported transition joints are also British transition joints.

From the above introduction, we can see that there are still big differences between metric and imperial transition joints, so the two cannot be mixed in use. At the same time, you can’t think that you are in China so you only use metric transition joints. In fact, they are used in many places in China. British transition joints, such as satellite tuner and receivers, mostly use the British system, while some similar TV set-top boxes, broadband cats, wall panels, and TV distributors use both British and metric transition joints. Therefore, before use, the specifications must be distinguished through the above introduction before use.
