Mill-Max's series of rugged spring pins
capable of carrying 9A continuous current at a 10C temperature rise. The
Mill-Max 0850, 0851, 0852 and 0853 spring pins are a solution for rugged
applications and for use in circuits operating at currents above signal level.
085X series has a greater mass and surface area for a lower resistance
electrical path than miniature spring pins. Because they are designed and built
with the same precision of our miniature spring pins they exhibit
signal integrity in shock and vibration environments.?
large scale spring pins feature a gold plated stainless steel spring, .050 inch
diameter solid plunger and thick wall construction to withstand the rigors of
demanding applications. Designed for through-hole mounting, each pin has a
large diameter post and flange providing for a perpendicular and secure P.C.B.
085X series provides a .045 inch mid-stroke and .090 inch maximum stroke
allowing for use in applications where stack up tolerances are great.
Applications include board stacking, docking stations, cable assemblies, quick
connects and anywhere there is a blind mate situation.?
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
