Spring-loaded pins (sometimes called spring contacts, spring probes or POGO pins) provide a highly reliable and precise interconnection solution that is very suitable for many demanding application requirements in the rapidly evolving field of electronic interconnection. Each MILL-MAX spring-loaded pin is precision machined to ensure a high-quality, low-resistance compliant connector, giving it an advantage over other technologies. MILL-MAX’s innovative design leads the industry, enabling engineers to specify the correct connector for their application.
Discrete spring pin
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 resistance throughout the life 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 capabilities.
There is also a spiral pogo pin
The most common type of spring pin is coiled. Also called a coil spring pin, it has a coiled spring that expands when inserted into the hole. They are made by spiraling metal strips. After insertion, the coil spring pin will begin to expand, creating a firm environment for the connected machine components.
