The EloPin is a modified eye of the needle (EON) press-fit contact, developed to feature several important goals:
Rem. 1: Several users internally released different sizes of the EloPin for applications up to 170°C. Since a significant dependency on the PCB used exists, this must be tested individually.
custom sizes available upon request. New standard sizes currently in
x1: The large span in press-in-/push-out forces of the EloPin 04-06 is mostly explicable by the relatively high PTH-tolerances compared to the relatively small contact. Shown values refer to the maximum and minimum Plated-Through-Hole diameters.
x2: Current capacity is largely dependent on assembly situation. Usually, the PCB buildup is the limiting factor. Further information upon request.
press-fit contacts usually are part of an assembly, end-users usually
don't list the pin-design itself. However, the press-fit design requires
a certain amount of testing. Therefore the DIN EN 60352-5 describes
two different test cycles, one for the press-fit and one for the component
featuring the press-fit.
The EloPin is a product developed by TBS Sorig and is manufactured and distributed by several independent licensees. This leads to crucial advantages for the customer:
The provided product quality of the different manufacturers is randomly tested by TBS. Adjustments of the design by the licensee are prohibited leading to a high standard of quality.
