Mill-Max (Oyster Bay, NY) offers a series of rugged spring pins capable of carrying 9 amps continuous current at 10 °C temperature rise. The Mill-Max 0850, 0851, 0852, and 0853 spring pins are suitable for rugged applications and for use in circuits operating above signal level. The 085X series is characterized by a greater mass and surface area, which provides a lower resistance electrical path than miniature spring pins. The spring pins feature a gold plated stainless steel spring, .050" diameter solid plunger, and thick wall construction to withstand demanding applications. They are designed for through-hole mounting, and each pin has a large diameter post and flange providing for a perpendicular and secure P.C.B. attachment. The 085X series provides .045" mid-stroke and .090" 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 solution. The series is rated at 1,000,000 cycles minimum.
