Each spring-loaded pin is usually made of 3 machined parts and assembled with internal springs to provide the required range of motion. All these components are electroplated with gold on nickel to ensure excellent electrical conductivity, durability and corrosion protection during the entire life cycle of the product. Benefiting from the many advantages of spring pins, companies in the telecommunications, military, medical, transportation, aerospace and industrial automation industries have discovered the advantages of using spring pins in their designs. Whether your application requires through-hole mounting, surface mounting, wire termination, press-fitting or alignment features, there are multiple styles to choose from to ensure you find the spring-loaded pin that fits your design.
The characteristics of most spring-loaded contact pins:
Lifespan up to 1,000,000 times
Typical contact resistance, mid-travel is 20MΩ
Tested to withstand at least 50G vibration and 10G vibration
Gold-plated components provide the best electrical and mechanical properties
When the temperature rises by 10°, continuous rated current of 2 to 9 amperes
