What Are The Factors Affecting The Life Of Pogo Pin Connectors


Pogo Pin connectors are often widely used in some electronic devices such as mobile phones and computers. The key is to play the connection function, so manufacturers like Pomagtor have conducted in-depth scientific research on producing Pogo Pin connectors.

Common Pogo Pin connectors have the following five types

1. Socket type

This type of connector has a locating pin at the end of the needle tube. Therefore, in welding with the PCB board, there will be no offset or other phenomena, and it can be said that the positioning effect is very good.

2. Bending type

For curved Pogo Pin connectors, the operator has more options in terms of space usage due to the curved design of the tail.

3. Flat-bottom type

Flat-bottom products have good stability characteristics. For example, the bottom of the needle tube is usually a flat bottom design, so it is easier to sell PCB boards and other boards.

4. Double-head type

Double-ended Pogo Pin connectors are typically double-ended, double-acting, allowing the operator more space flexibility during board-to-board bidirectional connections.

5. Thread type

Generally speaking, threaded Pogo Pin connectors have some special specifications, so this type of product can meet the different needs of customers to some extent. For example, many Pogo Pin connector manufacturers can be customized according to customers’ needs.

What are the factors that affect the life of Pogo Pin connectors?

1. The size of the Pogo Pin connector and the total separation force. The larger the number of contact pairs, the larger the volume and the larger the total separation force. In some cases where the reliability is high, and the volume is allowed, the method of connecting two pairs of contact pairs in parallel can be used to improve the reliability of the connection.

2. In the plug and socket of the Pogo Pin connector, the pin (positive contact) and the pin (negative contact) are usually interchangeable. It can be selected according to the live condition of both ends of the plug and socket.

If the socket needs to be charged frequently, you can choose a socket with a jack because the live contacts of the socket with a jack are buried in the insulator, so it is relatively safe for the human body to touch the live contacts.
