EDAC's New Magnetic Spring Loaded (Pogo Pin) Connectors

EDAC's New Magnetic Spring Loaded (Pogo Pin) Connector Cover

The connector marketplace has become one of the most diverse in the electronics industry. Even with this diversity, most connectors use a conventional plug and receptacle arrangement that might not be the perfect solution for all applications. For devices that require rapid disconnection, an alternative solution must be found.

These applications are becoming more common. Wearable technology has become a familiar part of our lives, from the latest battlefield communications to the MedTech industry which is providing advanced healthcare devices for patients. In these situations, cables must be able to release quickly to prevent damage or injury.

In the industrial arena, robots are becoming more sophisticated and versatile. Interchangeable tools allow them to perform a huge range of different tasks, each requiring a quick connection to maximize efficiency.

Manufacturers must look beyond conventional pin and socket designs to develop versatile quick-release connectors. Spring-loaded contacts, often known as pogo pins, have been used in the testing industry for many years. However, with the increasing interest in quick-release connectors, they have found a new lease on life.

The new range of magnetic pogo connectors from EDAC is designed specifically for quick-release applications. The range features two alternative arrangements. The circular design features 2, 3, and 4 pole options, arranged in a coaxial configuration. Retention is by means of strong magnets that maintain a strong positive contact, but still, allow quick release when needed. They are also quick to reconnect.
