How does Twist Pin technology work?
The Twist Pin contact enables the connector system to meet the most severe requirements, often significantly more so than stipulated in the MIL-DTL-32139 standards. The male Nano-D contact is made up of 10 strands of beryllium-copper and copper alloy twisted together, welded then bumped to form a bulged point.
This area of the contact is compressed inside the turned female socket contact during insertion and a high number of electrical contact points are permanently assured whilst retaining flexibility and ease of insertion/extraction. Both the socket contact chamfer and the twist pin semispherical radius contribute to ensuring adequate insertion even in case of misalignment.
