Different types of Twist Pin Connectors

Description of Twist Pin Connectors

The gold-plated connector twist contact pins contact by their design and performance enables the system to meet the most severe requirements – often significantly more so than stipulated in the MIL-DTL-83513 and MIL-DTL-32139 standards. The male Micro-D contact is made up of 10 strands of beryllium-copper and copper alloy twisted together, welded then bumped. These sprung strands are in fact compressed during insertion into the turned female contact and therefore a high number of electrical contact points are permanently assured while retaining flexibility and ease of insertion/extraction. The bulged point will be compressed inside the socket during insertion. Insertion and retention performance of the twist pin and socket mated pair. Both socket contact chamfer and twist pin hemispherical radius contribute to ensuring adequate insertion even in case of misalignment.

Sunkye gold plated connectors have teamed of twist pin technology with these custom designed insulators capable of meeting the extreme mechanical and electrical needs in the harshest environments of military/aerospace and industrial applications such as Down Hole Directional Drilling.
