OYSTER BAY, N.Y. – Mill-Max Manufacturing Corp. Inc. in Oyster Bay, N.Y., is introducing the 878-22-00X-10-011101 and 878-20-00X-00-011000 magnetic mating connectors for field of applications that require connections to be made quickly and easily.
These attributes make magnetic connectors attractive for use in medical environments with repeated mating and un-mating of cables into devices and with portable device docking/charging stations by enabling quick connections, blind mating, and the ability to break away for emergency release without damage to the components.
This series of magnetic connectors feature self-alignment, self-location, and zero force mating. Magnetic spring-loaded and mating target pins establish an electrical connection as the magnetic force pulls and holds the connectors together; no aligning or plugging is required to mate the connectors, and no hardware is needed to keep them mated.
The connectors can be used for power or signal transmission and may be mounted in vertical or horizontal orientations. Optimal electrical and mechanical reliability is ensured using high-quality Mill-Max spring-loaded pins.
The connectors are single-row with two to six positions, with a pin-to-pin spacing of 4 millimeters. The spring-loaded connector has an above-board height of 9.6 millimeters. These connectors contain spring-loaded pins featuring 2.3 millimeters of maximum stroke, a cycle life as long as to 1,000,000 cycles, and 25 milliohms contact resistance.
The target connector is shrouded to ensure alignment and engagement with the mating spring-loaded connector and has gold plated solder cup pins that accept up to 16 AWG wire.The use of strong, long-lasting neodymium (NdFeB) magnets on both connectors provides 1.4 pounds average separation force, and enables the connectors to be pulled into alignment and connect with each other from as far away as 12.7 millimeters apart.
