Mill-Max now offers a series of rugged spring pins capable
of carrying nine amps continuous current at a low 10°C temperature rise. The
Mill-Max 0850, 0851, 0852, and 0853 spring pins are the perfect solution for
rugged applications and for use in circuits operating at currents above signal
The 085X series is characterized by a greater mass and
surface area that provides a lower resistance electrical path than miniature
spring pins. Because they are designed and built with the same precision of the
company’s miniature spring pins, they exhibit excellent signal integrity in
shock and vibration environments.
These large scale spring pins feature a gold plated
stainless steel spring, 0.05 in. diameter solid plunger, and thick wall
construction to withstand the rigors of demanding applications. Designed for
through-hole mounting, each pin has a large diameter post and flange providing
for a perpendicular and secure PCB attachment.
The 085X series provides a generous 0.045 in. mid-stroke and
0.09 in. maximum stroke, allowing for use in applications where stack up
tolerances are great.
