Electrical Connector Attributes
• Consists of male/female jack and plug design
• Joins electrical terminations, ensuring
continuous flow of current & signal
• Often employs separate mechanical latching &
EMI/RFI shielding components, increasing
size/weight
• Demands repeatable, consistent performance
Slide 4
Connector Engineering Challenges
• Reduce size, weight and power consumption (SWaP)
• Fulfill multiple mechanical and electrical functions
 Latching
 Conducting
 EMI/RFI Shielding
• Manage high current in small form without
temperature spike
• Resist shock and vibration
• Consistently perform over 1000s of cycles
Slide 5
Canted Coil Springs Can Help:
• Reduce Size & Weight
 Latching + Conducting + EMI/RFI
Shielding in one component means
fewer parts & simpler designs
• Conduct More Power
 Canted coil springs achieve higher
power density through design &
material science
• Extend Product Life
 Springs are resistant to compression
for 1000s of cycles
• Highly customizable to meet
unique land, sea, and air
service requirements
Slide 6
Mechanical Latch
The canted coil spring can be used for sliding, latching,
or permanent connections
Slide 7
Electrical Contact
The canted coil spring offers
• High power density
• Cooler operation
• Compact footprint
• Individual coils ensure consistent
current/signal flow in environments
with vibration, surface irregularities
and misalignment
• Simplified installation &
maintenance
Slide 8
EMI/RFI Shield
Canted coil spring geometry and electrical properties
make it ideal for use as EMI/RFI shielding component
