Pre-Wired Spring-Loaded Connectors

Feb 2020

Mill-Max Manufacturing Corp., Inc. announces the release of a new pre-wired spring-loaded connector, a two-position header with crimp terminated wires. This product combines high quality Mill-Max spring-loaded pogo pins with the convenience of a 12” pig-tail to suit a wide variety of applications. 

The new 867-22-002-70-501010 cable assembly is a cost-effective solution when a wired connection is required in an electrical assembly. Crimping wires to a connector comes with challenges: gang crimping tooling is not readily available and the alternative, crimp and poke connectors, can be time consuming and labor-intensive to use. This connector eliminates those issues and is ready to use in a host of wire termination applications. The open end wire offers flexible termination possibilities such as soldering, crimping, splicing or connecting to a terminal block. The 867 series uses high reliability Mill-Max spring-loaded pins making it an excellent choice for battery charging, low-power delivery and quick connect purposes.

Mill-Max

Early Engagement Receptacles 

Jan 2020

The latest receptacles designed by Mill-Max features minimal insertion length contact which allows for shorter mating leads. These receptacles accept lead diameters from .037” - .043” with a minimum mating lead length of .058” for top entry insertion. This is a 30% reduction in required lead length from the current receptacle offerings.  The reduction is due to the hourglass design and extended contact surface area, eliminating the need for excess protrusion through its fingers for reliable electrical contact.  The ability to use shorter mating pins provides several advantages such as compressed packaging, shorter electrical signal paths and lower potential RF signal interference.

Compression Mount Spring-Loaded Connectors

Aug 2019

The 858-22-00X-80-XX1101 and 858-22-00X-80-XX2101 connectors are new additions to our 4 mm pitch rugged spring-loaded series, they are the first Mill-Max connectors to incorporate spring pins with active plungers at each end. This unique feature makes these connectors ideal for situations in which a soldered connection is not desirable or may not be possible due to design constraints such as temperature considerations, stack up tolerance issues or where ease of assembly and disassembly is required. With spring-loaded plungers as the interface at both ends, the connector is sandwiched between two mating surfaces using screws to compress the plungers on the base end, eliminating the need for soldering. The opposite end plunger then acts as any other spring-loaded connector, ready to engage with a mating device or board.
