2 How does a pogo pin work?
A basic spring plunger consists of 3 main parts: a plunger, a barrel, and a spring. When force is applied to the pin, the spring is compressed and the plunger moves inside the barrel. The shape of the barrel holds the plunger in place and prevents the spring from pushing it out when the pin is not locked in place.
3 How do I connect my pogo pin?
Push the pogo pins through the holes at the end of each row of the board and solder them in place. You may want to place the board on the clip by hand to make sure the pins are in a good position to make contact with the board being programmed.
4 Are pogo pins waterproof?
Like most Smconn connectors approved for use in portable and wearable medical devices, pogo-pin connectors can provide IP-rated protection against liquid ingress. In spring-loaded connectors, this sealing is achieved by installing an O-ring between the contact pin and the housing.
