Spring Contacts and Pins

Kemlon manufactures a variety of male and female contacts to be used in our connector systems. The standard contacts are frequently used in our boots and molded connectors. The solderable contacts are constructed of heat-treated beryllium copper, while the crimpable type are made of bronze for ease of crimping. All standard contacts have a protective brass or stainless steel tube covering the slotted portion of the insert. All inserts are gold plated and accept a .44 long pin. The bronze and beryllium copper spring contacts are rated for 350'F continuous and 500'F short term service. If a greater temperature rating is needed, specify Kemlon's special nickel alloy which is good to 900'F continuous. Other inserts and pins which may be useful for special applications are also listed below.

Crimping Tool

Crimping Tool

To achieve proper crimping it is recommended that crimping tool 19-A-615 be used. This tool makes a four-way crimp which will firmly hold the bared cable conductor inside the contact socket. The unique Rachet mechanism does not release until the contact is fully crimped, thus insuring a solid connection every time.
