Fountain Inn, S.C. ‒ AVX Corp. has introduced a series of single pogo pin board- to-board (BTB) contacts designed for use in high lifecycle commercial, industrial, medical, and military applications. Available in five standard compressed stacking heights from 2.0 mm to 5.0 mm, which is the maximum working range and compressed height tolerance possible in a miniature 1.5-mm diameter plunger, the 70-9150 Series contacts provide low-cost, off-the-shelf connector solutions for an extensive range of applications, said the company.
Enabling design flexibility in terms of pin count and placement location, the single pogo pin contacts feature gold plating for high reliability and signal integrity. A high force stainless steel spring facilitates exceptional mechanical and electrical performance for up to 10,000 cycles, said AVX.
Designed to mate with gold-plated PCB pads or flat contacts in docking or cradle applications, 70-9150 Series contacts are well suited to function as the charging, data transfer, or programming interface for wide variety of portable devices. Applications include docking stations for recharging or transferring data to or from portable electronic devices, such as cell phones, MP3 players, tablets, and e-readers; testing and programming handheld electronic devices, such as point-of-sale equipment and handheld industrial terminals; and cabled interconnects in portable military radios. The single pogo pin contacts can also be used as an interface between medical or measurement devices and their pluggable, disposable components.
Available in five contact heights (1.9 mm to 2.3 mm, 2.4 mm to 2.8 mm, 2.9 mm to 3.4 mm, 3.9 mm to 4.5 mm, and 4.9 mm to 5.5 mm), the 70-9150 Series single pogo pin contacts are rated for an operating temperatures of -40°C to +125°C and 1A current. Voltage rating for the series is based on placement distance.
The RoHS-compliant series is comprised of brass contacts with gold over nickel plating and SUS 304 grade stainless steel springs with a nominal 60g per contact spring force to maintain electrical connection in harsh environment applications. Supplied on standard tape and reel packaging for automatic in-line SMT placement, 70-9150 pogo pin contacts feature a disposable plastic cap to facilitate vacuum pick up and may be integrated into custom plastic insulators to create a complete connector solution upon request.
