These highly versatile contacts feature all the same benefits of our spring contacts but with a flexible interconnection advantage. The pairing of one contact with a convex conical tip to a contact with a concave conical receptacle tip allows them to self-align.

This flexible construction allows them to compensate for angular and parallel misalignments as they connect and are a low cost solution to expensive alternative assemblies and components.

Additional Features:

  • Minimum of self-inductance
  • Extremely low DC resistance
  • Minimum of insertion loss
  • Lifetime spring reliability (100 cycles to infinity)
  • Good electrical contact between two mating parts with moderate forces
  • Seamless and non-porous with no permeability of dust, dirt or moisture
  • Miniature Size Capability
  • Reduce Tolerance Build-up
  • Maximum current rating of 4 amps
  • Operating temperature -423 °F to 260 °F with no loss of spring rate
