Large Scale Spring Pins have high-current design.

Press Release Summary:

Rugged spring pins, rated at 9 A, are designed with unique termination features: MM 0854-0-15-20-82-14-11-0 has solder cup, and MM 0855-0-15-20-82-14-11-0 is designed with crimp barrel. Both accept wire diameters up to 16 AWG. For PCB mount assembly, MM 0856-0-15-20-82-14-11-0 has solder tail. Inside each pin is gold-plated, stainless steel spring rated for 1,000,000 cycles. All products have .045 in. working travel (.090 in. max) and brass alloy components.

Original Press Release:

Mill-Max Offers 3 Additional High Current Spring Pins

Mill-Max is pleased to announce the addition of three new large scale, high current spring pins to our expanding family of ruggedized spring-loaded products. In contrast to our miniature spring pins, which are typically used on .100" (2.54 mm) centers, these new offerings are for applications where greater spacing is required due to electrical and mechanical specifications.

All three are rugged spring pins, rated at 9 amps and designed with unique termination features. MM 0854-0-15-20-82-14-11-0 has a solder cup while MM 0855-0-15-20-82-14-11-0 is designed with a crimp barrel - both can accept wire diameters up to 16AWG. MM 0856-0-15-20-82-14-11-0 has a solder tail for PCB mount assembly.

Inside each MM 0854, 0855 and 0856 spring pin is a gold-plated, stainless steel spring rated for 1,000,000 cycles. Gold plating provides the highest interconnect reliability, corrosion protection and wear resistance. MM large scale spring pins have a .045" (1.143 mm) working travel (.090" [2.286 mm] maximum travel) and exhibit higher spring forces than smaller miniature spring pin connectors. In addition, these spring pins feature thick wall construction and solid plungers for increased durability.

As with all Mill-Max spring pins, the components are made from brass alloy, high-speed machined to precision tolerances and gold-plated for excellent mechanical, thermal and conductive properties.

Mill-Max large scale spring pins are typically used in cable, front panel, board stacking and docking station applications.
