OYSTER BAY, N.Y. – Mill-Max Mfg. Corp. in Oyster Bay, N.Y., is introducing the 858-22-00X-80-XX1101 and 858-22-00X-80-XX2101 solderless compression style spring-loaded connectors for situations in which a soldered connection is not desirable or may not be possible because of temperature or stack-up tolerance issues.

These connectors These connectors have two active plungers that use hardware to secure them in position. No soldering is necessary, so they facilitate easy adjustment during assembly and removal.

The 4-millimeter-pitch rugged, spring-loaded connectors incorporate spring pins with active plungers at each end to sandwich the connector between two mating surfaces using screws to compress the plungers on the base end. The opposite end plunger is ready to engage with a mating device or board.

Environments, such as in medical or research applications, where devices and mating surfaces must be wiped down and cleaned regularly are an excellent use for no-solder, compression connectors as they are easy to assemble and disassemble.
