Interfacing Components > Front Fitment >

 

A range of spring contacts which are fitted from the front of a plastic panel/housing.

A collar is found near the top end of the spring contact. This acts as a stop enabling the spring contact to be mounted at a set position. Some of the spring contacts in the range can be used with a receptacle which means that they can be removed without disconnecting the wiring.
