Omniball™ Spring-Loaded Contacts

The unique Omniball™ spring-loaded contact (patent pending) features a rolling ball interface, enabling mating components to engage in lateral, rotational, and angular alignments while providing optimal electrical, mechanical, and structural reliability.

The Omniball™ contact is a spring-loaded pin in which the traditional plunger has been replaced by a gold plated ball. It is designed to simplify and improve the connections made between components which are mated together in a sliding or rotational motion rather than in an axial or vertical orientation. When engaged, the ball compresses and rolls, allowing the mating surfaces to make contact and then easily slide parallel to each other while spring force acts to ensure consistent electrical contact is maintained. This rolling action alleviates the concerns of connector damage such as binding, premature wearing and structural failure that may occur when using traditional plunger style spring pins in these types of applications.
