CONTACT DESIGN
The contact consists of three parts, manufactured separately from
different base materials. This design optimises the performance
and selects the most appropriate individual production process:
• Contact body: machined brass.
• Reverse clip: stamped and formed beryllium-copper.
• Hood: deep-drawn stainless steel.
Separate electroplating processes of the body and clip allow
the best cost-performance ratio. The assembly of the three parts
is carried out on dedicated, ful ly automated assembly l ines.
ADVANTAGES AND CHARACTERISTICS
• Smaller difference between insertion and extraction forces.
• Reduced dispersion of the force values.
• By using a 6 or 8 contact finger, a superior electrical contact is
made at the point of engagement.
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
Operating temperature range from -65 to +200°C
CONTACT DESIGN
• The hoodless contact consists of two parts: the contact body
and the clip (separate pressure member) are made from differ-
ent base materials.
• The high-speed screw machined contact body is made of brass.
• The use of quality crimping brass renders the annealing opera-
tion unnecessary.
• The precision stamped and formed Eagle Grip clip is made of
beryllium-copper.
• Separate electroplating processes of the body and clip offer the
best cost-performance ratio.
• Automatic assembly lines are designed by our engineers to con-
duct the body and clip assembly.
• The clip is precisely positioned in the outer shell and firmly held in
place between a shoulder and the crimp lip.
• Eagle Grip clip hoodless contacts are presently available in sizes
16, 20 and 22.
• This PRECI-DIP proprietary technology is protected by interna-
tional patents.
ADVANTAGES AND CHARACTERISTICS
• 2-piece contact without hood.
• Fully automatic assembly process with in-line mechanical check.
• Localized finish: body and clip are plated separately.
• High surface quality with a stamped and formed clip.
• Precision rolling surface finish in the contact area.
• Better contact redundancy thanks to 3 or 4 contact fingers.
• Limited difference between insertion and extraction mating
forces.
• Narrow range of the force values.
• Swiss precision technology.
