Electrical Contacts/Electrical Connectors/Contact Pins

Contact that allows current to pass from one conductor to another. Electrical contacts are conductive devices that make or break electrical circuits. Electrical contacts can be made of metals, alloys or composites, depending on the application. It’s important in electronic devices.

Current, conductivity, resistivity, tensile strength, flexural strength, length, width, and thickness are important parameters to consider when selecting electrical contacts and contact materials. Good contact materials include brass, copper, gold, nickel, silver, and tin.
