Leadership In Waterproof Connectors for Portable & Wearable Medical Applications
Yokowo develops smaller, rugged connectors to withstand the everyday environmental hazards found in portable health care equipment. Yokowo spring-loaded pogo-pin connectors deliver the high-reliability performance required in demanding portable, mobile and wearable medical electronic applications.
Yokowo pogo-pin connectors provide IP-rated protection. In spring-loaded connectors, this is achieved by installing an O-ring between the contact pin and housing for waterproofing. For example, Yokowo S Series designs can offer IP67-, IP68- or IP69K-rated protection against liquids like water, cleaning chemicals and more.
Durability & Reliability
Yokowo’s pogo-pin contacts provide a constant mating force and can withstand the shock / vibration common in portable medical equipment. Contacts are electroplated with gold over nickel to achieve high electrical conductivity, increasing durability and corrosion resisistance required by critical clinical equipment. Advanced vaccum-plated pogo-pin contacts offer maximum durability up to 100,000 mating cycles.
To meet SWaP requirements, new waterproof pogo connectors can feature narrow terminal pitches of 2.5 mm.
Saving space and cost, pogo-pin connectors can also mate with a wide variety of surfaces.
Using advanced insulator technology, Yokowo pogo-pin connectors offer much higher current- carrying capacity, up to 10A, versus standard ball technology.
