The temperature resistance standard is that the current maximum working temperature of the Pogo Pin is 200 °C, The minimum temperature is -65℃, because when the Pogo Pin is working, electric current creates heat at the contact point,cause temperature rise,therefore, the general public believes that the operating temperature should be equal to the sum of the ambient temperature and the temperature rise of the junction,in some specifications,the maximum temperature rise allowed by the pogo pin under the rated working current is clearly defined.
Moisture resistance is the intrusion of moisture which can affect the insulation properties of the connection H and corrode and rust Pogo Pin metal parts. the constant damp heat test conditions are relative humidity 90%~95%, temperature +40±20℃, and the test time shall be at least 96 hours according to the product specification. the alternating damp heat test is even more stringent.
Salt spray resistance is when the Pogo Pin works in an environment containing moisture and salt, its metal structural parts and the surface treatment layer of the contact parts may produce galvanic corrosion, which affects the physical and electrical properties of the Pogo Pin. To test the ability of Pogo Pin to withstand this environment, the salt spray test is specified. It is to suspend the Pogo Pin in a temperature-controlled test box, and spray the sodium chloride solution with the specified concentration with compressed air to form a salt fog atmosphere, and the exposure time is specified by the product specification, at least 48 hours.
Vibration and shock are the important properties of Pogo Pin, and it is particularly important in special application environments such as aviation and aerospace, railway and road transportation. the shock test shall specify the peak acceleration, duration and shock pulse shape, as well as the time to break electrical continuity.
