MOTION CONTROL: Servometer’s Interconnectric® line of paired, gold plated, miniature bellows contact springs were designed for flexible interconnections. Outside diameters range from .037 inch (.94 mm) to .125 inch (3.18 mm), and can be used individually or as pairs. The unique pairing of a contact with a convex conical tip, to a contact with a concave conical receptacle tip, allows them to self-align as they connect; to compensate for angular and parallel misalignments.
Interconnectric® contact springs are manufactured from electrodeposited nickel alloy and gold plated to
ASTM B-488-01 to enhance their conductivity. They provide extremely low dc resistance with a minimum of insertion loss, and are designed to provide lifetime spring and force repeatability.
These Interconnectric®, self-aligning contact springs will minimize shock and vibration in dynamic applications; help overcome tolerance buildup and misalignment problems in critical assemblies, and allows the designer a less expensive alternative to high tight toleranced assembly components.
Servometer Interconnectric® contact springs are available from stock. If one of Servometer’s “stocked” contact springs does not meet your requirements, our experienced design engineers can design a custom contact to your unique specifications. Custom contacts can be designed with bellows diameters as small as .020 inch (.5 mm).
