Spring-loaded pins enable sliding, rotational connections
Stephen LawElectronics Interconnect connector
MILL MAX Omniball spring-loaded connectors serve applications requiring multiple points of contact in sliding or rotational orientations. Device’s patent pending features include a rolling ball interface, enabling contact to be made between components in axial and non-axial alignments. The versatile devices facilitate creative solutions for innovative interconnect arrangements, while providing optimal electrical, mechanical, and structural reliability. Devices optimize connections between components that slide or revolve into contact. When engaged, the ball compresses and rolls, allowing the mating surfaces to make contact and then easily slide parallel to each other while spring force acts to ensure consistent electrical contact is maintained. This rolling action prevents binding, premature wearing and structural failure that traditional, plunger style, spring pin connectors can be prone to in these types of applications.
