Magnetic Connector

Magnetic Connector with Cable Assembly

We realize your magnetic connector including cable assembly. On request, we also take over the construction and development.

The trend towards an ever narrower and design-oriented construction of communication devices makes the integration of standard connectors difficult. Our customer-specific, magnetic connectors consist of spring contact pins and a magnetic connection system.

Small and Design-oriented

Pogo Pins are available in very small designs. The smallest standard pin is only 1.6 mm long (SVPC-F-F3366AA01). The arrangement of the contact pins in the so-called right-angle design is particularly space-saving. Contacting in a very small space can be implemented. The contact is not made by inserting the pins, but already when touching the contact points. Not only charging current but also all other types of signals can be transmitted. Depending on the material and internal structure of the pogo pin, currents of up to 15A per pin are possible. This is a decisive advantage, especially for the charging time of high-performance batteries.

Self-Guiding Connection

The implementation of magnets ensures a self-guiding, shock, and vibration-resistant connection between plug and device. This means that even very small plugs and sockets can be connected relatively easily in difficult installation situations. Incorrect connections can also be excluded due to the polarity of the magnets. The magnetic force can be adjusted customer-specifically using various magnets. Examples include: charging cables for smartwatches or e-bikes.

Another advantage of a magnetic release mechanism is that if the cable is pulled unintentionally, the end device will not be damaged by a fall. This can also prevent integrated sockets in walls from being torn out.
But this type of safety mechanism has also proven itself in household appliances. Pulling a cable on a kettle can lead to severe scalds from hot water if it falls over. This risk can be avoided by using a magnetic connector.

IPx7 and higher

For more demanding installation situations in which protection classes of IPx7 and higher are required, we offer various connector designs. On the one hand, the pins can be supplemented with an O-ring seal, on the other hand, there is the possibility of direct overmoulding with plastic and/or sealing with elastomer materials.

Magnetic connectors offer high functional reliability with a very high number of cycles of at least 10,000 re-attachments.

Easy for product relaunch

Magnetic cable solutions can be easily integrated into existing operating systems using customer-specific plug-in adapters. In this way, tried and tested input devices can be relaunched without any complications. We design and supply such magnetic cable solutions with plugs based on spring contacts as a complete system.

In the example, the connector consists of four spring contact pins and a permanent magnet. This ensures a quick shock and vibration-resistant connection between the plug and the device. The special shape of the plug ensures a reliable connection to the housing. For this project, N&H took on the cable assembly and the production of the housing.
