When the power is on, users do not want shock or vibration to create spurious signals. Mill-Max's spring-loaded contacts provide a reliable electrical connection in the most rigorous environments:
- Maximum continuity: precision-machined gold-plated components and a low-resistance spring maintain a consistent electrical path
- Maximum stability: tested to a minimum of 50 G shock and 10 G vibration with no spikes >1 μs and >1.15 V with 0.5 A applied
- Maximum endurance: 1,000,000 cycles and still electrically silent
- Maximum Range: Over 8 families of single and double row strip assemblies, plus a choice of over 50 discrete spring-loaded contacts for use in customer specific assemblies
In addition, Mill-Max offers mating target connectors that provide a convenient mating surface to connect with Mill-Max spring-loaded connectors. Mill-Max target connectors are a very convenient solution to applications requiring a conductive extension from the surface of one module up to another. If a non-standard solution is required, it is much more cost effective to modify a Mill-Max target connector than a spring pin assembly.
Spring-loaded contacts are typically used as the base unit (battery/charger) interface for portable equipment such as mobile phones/radios, bar code readers, and medical and test instruments. They can also be used as a rugged surface-to-surface connector between circuit boards.
