Spring contacts and lands for PCB interconnection and a wide range of data, power and battery charging applications

Spring contacts and lands for PCB interconnection and a wide range of data, power and battery charging applications including:

  • charging batteries in portable instruments
  • power and data transfer pins in a docking station
  • integral compliant contacts, such as for an antenna contact in a mobile phone
  • board to board spring contacts for use in computerised gaming systems and telecommunications units

The spring loaded contact consists of a gold plated tubular metal barrel, spring and plunger as a one piece item. The tip of the spring loaded plunger will provide a reliable electrical contact to the target, whose distance away or position may well be uncertain.

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.

 


Back Fitment

 

A range of spring loaded contacts whose fitment method is from behind the plastic moulding or housing.

A collar is found at the back end of the spring contact. This acts as a stop enabling the spring contact to be mounted at a set position. A barb is often used midway down the barrel to permanently hold the spring contact in position once fitted.

The movie shows a typical installation using the PD10JS spring contact and the IPP2S contact land.
