Applications for Spring Pins with Wire Termination
Both 0933-0 and 0962-0 can be used in single position applications and feature a press-fit barb on the spring body for the creation of multi-spring pin interconnect packages.
Mill-Max part number 0962-0-15-20-75-14-11-0 is a spring pin featuring a crimp barrel for crimp termination of 22 awg wires (.025" diameter) and offers the advantages of both a compression spring connection on one end and a wire termination on the other. The .042" diameter plunger performs with the same typical reliability Mill-Max customers have come to expect with any of its spring pin products. Rated at one million cycles minimum, it is as robust as any spring pin offered anywhere. It has the unique feature of a crimp-barrel tail that can accommodate stranded or solid copper wires up to 22 gage.
Plated with 20μ" of gold over nickel on each precision-machined component and 10μ" of gold over nickel on the beryllium copper spring, the 0962 is as durable as it is multi-faceted.
If soldering is preferred, Mill-Max part number 0933-0-15-20-75-14-11-0 is a spring pin featuring a milled soldercup for solder termination of 22 awg wires (.025" diameter) and is the perfect choice. With all the reliability characteristics of the 0962, the 0933 has the proven solder-cup design utilized by numerous Mill-Max pins and receptacles and can accommodate up to 22 gage stranded or solid copper wires.
|Example application: |
A customer solders 22awg wires into two individual Mill-Max# 0933 soldercup spring pins
Gold plated Mill-Max 0933-0-15-20-75-14-11-0 spring pins with soldercup feature can accept a wire size up to 22awg. Customers typically use our soldercup spring pins in single or multi-pin assemblies for docking, board stacking, cable, front plate or PCB mount applications.
The spring body features a retention barb below the shoulder for press-fit attachment into standard molded hi-temp thermoplastic or custom FR-4 machined insulators. MM#0933 spring pins are rated up to 3 amps and have a stroke life of 1 million cycles.
|Example Application: |
A customer protects the miniature Mill-Max soldercup spring pin connector with a molded housing to achieve the longest spring pin cycle life.
A customer's application incorporates a molded housing (transparent view) around the Mill-Max soldercup spring connector permitting ideal .0275" mid-stroke plunger engagement and protecting the miniature .042" diameter against damaging, potential binding, lateral load forces.
|Example application: |
A customer solders 22 awg wires into both a Mill-Max single row, 8 position, soldercup spring pin connector 824-22-008-00-001000 and a mating single row, 8 position, soldercup target connector 330-10-108-00-240000.
