A component is a smaller part of a device or mechanism. This is a broad term that includes both external and internals parts that contribute to the function or design of a device. Components generally fall into more specific categories based on the primary function of the component.
It may not be useful to tag every example of a component. This tag is most useful on posts showing partially or fully disassembled devices, and especially examples of loose components. It also serves as an umbrella tag for various objects known to be used as components of other objects.
