Spring Loaded Pogo Pins & Connectors

*


What are Pogo Pins?

Pogo pins, contact pins, or spring-loaded connectors, are key for creating temporary yet reliable electrical connections in various electronic devices. What sets them apart from other common PCB connectors is their spring mechanism, which ensures consistent contact by applying a constant force. The spring design also allows them to flex and maintain a stable connection, even if there are slight misalignments during assembly. Furthermore, pogo pins often require less board space compared to bulkier connectors,  simplifying PCB layout while potentially reducing overall device size. This makes them indispensable in applications like charging ports, data transfer interfaces, and testing environments.

The widespread adoption of pogo pins began in the mid-20th century, alongside the miniaturization of electronic components, as their design proved perfect for ensuring reliable connections in increasingly compact devices, replacing the older low-current pin models that were unstable and extremely sensitive to vibration. 

At ATTEND, we offer a comprehensive range of pogo pin types to satisfy your specific needs, from standard and magnetic options for robust applications, to waterproof variants for demanding environments. We also specialize in multi-pin connectors that efficiently handle complex circuitry, and single pin designs that provide focused connectivity for specialized tasks. 

Pogo Pin Components

A pogo pin usually consists of 3 to 4 components, including the barrel, the spring, the pin and the optional housing, which all work in perfect sync to help provide connectivity.
  • Barrel

The barrel acts as a sturdy outer casing which provides structural support and protects the delicate internal components from external impact. It also guides the movement of the pin, by keeping it centered and preventing excessive lateral movement.

  • Spring:

The spring is the heart of the pogo pin's functionality, it is typically a coiled conductive metal structure that will create a constant pressure, to ensure that the pin maintains a firm connection with the mating surface, even with slight variations in alignment. The spring can also be compressed and extended, which allows the pogo pin to absorb some shock or vibration, thus preventing accidental disconnections.

  • Pin (Plunger) 

The Pin or plunger is the conductive tip of the pogo pin that is lodged directly above the spring coil, allowing it to retract and touch the barrel when external force is applied. When the plunger comes into contact with an electric current, it will transmit the current to the other end, to facilitate the electrical flow within the pogo pin. The size of the contact area formed when the plunger touches another conductor also plays a crucial role. The larger this contact area, the lower the resistance to electrical current flow.

  • Housing 

Additionally, a housing component can be used to neatly encase and organize multiple pogo pins, to create a multi-pin connector. It ensures proper spacing between individual pins and provides a secure, unified structure for connecting to the PCB or mating surface, which is necessary to accommodate multiple connections simultaneously in complex circuitry.Pogo Pin Components

Mounting Types of Pogo Pin

Pogo pins come in various mounting configurations to suit different assembly needs, common mounting types include: SMT/SMD, Through Hole, Double-Ended, High Current, Right Angle, Bending Type, Solder Cup, Thread Screw, DIP Mounting. ATTEND currently offers SMT pogo pins, through-hole mounting pogo pins and DIP pogo pins, catering to multiple applications.
  • SMT (Surface Mount Technology): These pogo pins are soldered directly onto the PCB surface, and offer a compact, space-saving design, which is suited for modern, miniaturized electronics. Plus, SMT facilitates faster and more automated assembly processes, leading to quicker production times.

  • Through-Hole Mounting: Through-hole pogo pins have leads that pass through holes in the PCB and are soldered on the other side. This method provides a robust mechanical connection, ideal for applications requiring high durability and resistance to shock or vibration.

  • DIP (Dual In-Line Package): DIP pogo pins have plug-in mechanisms, allowing them to be easily placed onto the PCB by hand before being soldered in place. It's also easier to inspect and rework compared to through-hole mounting, making it suitable for on-site maintenance. Though this mounting method is no longer common in modern devices, they are still highly compatible across multiple vendors.


How to Select the Right Pogo Pin Manufacturers

While cost is an important consideration in choosing the right manufacturers, it shouldn't be the sole deciding factor, as pogo pins are critical components and their quality directly impacts your device's functionality and longevity. 
So, be sure to look for a manufacturer that provides competitive pricing, with a proven track record of producing high-quality, durable pogo pins, while also offering a variety of pogo pin options, including different sizes, pin amounts, and spring forces, that cater to your specific needs. 
Moreover, you should ensure the manufacturer has the capacity to meet your production volume requirements and deliver your order on time. On top of that, an experienced manufacturer can provide valuable guidance in selecting the right pogo pin for your application, so be sure to choose a company that has technical support readily available to answer your questions and address any concerns.
