PORTSMOUTH, England, 5 Dec. 2016. Harwin Plc in Portsmouth, England, is introducing the vertical Pogo Pin surface-mountspring contacts for wearable electronics like medical and fitness devices, mobile phones, car stereos, and notebook and tablet computers.

Harwin Pogo Pins are surface mountable vertical spring-loaded contact pins that can mate with any surface. Featuring rounded contact heads with a gold finish that makes the most of device life, they have a free height from 2.4 to 8.2 millimeters.

These pins also are available as multi-contact connectors in two-, three-, four-, or five-contact configurations and as individual pins in two barrel sizes, 1.03 millimeters diameter or 1.50 millimeters diameter.

The range includes Pogo Pin spring contacts with a through-hole peg that can be used for plated-through-hole soldering or as a location peg on the SMT base. The individual Pogo Pins have barbs for retention in moldings, which enables users to gang several contacts together.

For use as a mating surface for vertical or horizontal spring contacts, spring-loaded contacts and spring-loaded contact assemblies, Harwin's new circular, oval or rectangular S70 SMT contact pads feature a gold finish for maximum wear resistance.

The rectangular S70 SMT pads are available in three sizes: 2.5 millimeters by 1.6 millimeters by 0.15 millimeters thick; 3.8 millimeters by 1.8 millimeters by 0.1 millimeters thick; and 3.8 millimeters by 3.0 millimeters by 0.5 thick.

Oval or round shape S70 SMT pads are 2 millimeters long, with a diameter of 1 millimeters at the ends, with a choice of 0.1 millimeters thickness or 0.2 millimeters thickness.

The circular flat contact pads are available in one size only, 3.2 millimeters diameter, and are 0.2 millimeters thick. Harwin SMT contact pads are supplied on tape & reel for automated assembly, with between 2,000 and 5,000 pieces per reel depending on design.
