Pogo Pins are used in almost every kind of electronic device today. Their high durability, tolerance, and versatile application make them a preferred connector for intelligent electronic designs.
7 Advantages at a Glance
Easy to plug-in, no accidental rip-off of the cable.
Different pogo designs maximize the stability of the current flow by increasing the number of contact points inside the pin.
Pogo pins are produced with high precision turning machines and don’t require a mold as it is the case for other connectors that are using a stamping process.
The trend towards miniaturization in the electronics industry is continuing. No other connector has a better space to current ratio than a pogo pin.
The increasing complexity of todays’ electronics increase the assembly costs and difficulty significantly. Pogo pins not only reduce the manual labor time for inserting cables of pins but also open up new design and arrangement option for industrial designers and engineers.
Small errors in the production often lead to unstable connectors as they not properly touching the surface of their counterpart. Pogo pins allow extremely high tolerances in the production and thereby decreasing the likelihood for errors.
Pogo pins have a far superior lifetime as compared to other connector types as they minimize the mechanical strain on the parts.
The Right Design for the Right Application
The drilled plunger creates extra space for the spring and allowing shorter pogo pin designs.
The biased tail of the plunger creates a lateral force and better contact.
The ball inside stabilizes the contacting areas for a better performance.
The ball design maximizes the number of contact points, thereby allowing a higher and more stable flow of current.
The higher the spring force, the better the plunger is pressed against the wall of the barrel, allowing a stable current flow.
Different material types can heavily influence the conductivity of the pin, but also the roughness is important to increase the current flow.
CCP's Super AP Plating is the gold-standard of the industry. Its superior composition makes it extremely resistant to electrolytic corrosion while maintaining a very low resistance. The perfect solution for any kind electrical application.
Galvanic corrosion occurs, when two different metals of different nobility get into close contact in the presence of an electrolyte such as water. Dissimilar metals have different electrode potentials which cause one of the metals to act as a cathode and the other as an anode. The resulting current flow is the main cause for the dissolve of the lesser noble (anode) metal. Acid or alkali environments, for example on human skin, can accelerate galvanic corrosion significantly and attack even metals such as gold and platin.
