Single-pole miniature connectors are used for the transmission of electrical measuring data, voltages and currents. They are a universal tool for prototype models in Research and Development laboratories, in test rigs and workshops; they are also used in servicing and customer service and are familiar to a large number of hobbyists. Miniature measuring equipment is used in the protection potential and low voltage ranges.
The systems use connector pin diameters of 0.64 mm and 2 mm and allow reliable connections in the smallest possible area, occupying the minimum amount of space. This makes these systems particularly advantageous in microelectronics (SMD technology). The shatter-proof flexible insulating sleeves mean that the connectors are also able to withstand significant loading.
Combination with the 4 mm system is made easy by the adapters. Ready-made and injection-moulded measuring and connecting leads provide the connection between miniature laboratory equipment and the 4 mm system.
High quality contact materials such as brass connector pins, sprung, tin-plated copper berryllium sockets and partially gold-plated contact surfaces combine with good clamping force (clamp-type test probes, crocodile clips) and the components low self-weight to guarantee high security of contact and the low contact resistances which are particularly important in microelectronics.
The insulated grip area on this miniature laboratory equipment has been designed to permit ease-of-handling and to provide the greatest safety to the user. The equipment is intended for use with low voltages. We refer in the context to the VDE Specifications VDE 0100, VDE 0105 and the Employers Liability Insurance Association's Accident Prevention Regulations.
According to VDE 0100 Part 410, the maximum voltage for direct contact is 25 V AC and 60 V DC.
