The more mobile our society becomes, the stronger the demand for battery-powered devices. SUYIN offers the right battery connector for nearly any kind of application, from mobile phones and notebooks to portable devices for industrial, automotive, and medical device applications. And if the tremendous range of ready-to-order battery connector solutions (with well over 1,000 different variants) does not include the solution that you are looking for, SUYIN’s special strength comes into play: Fast development and production in accordance with customer specifications.
In conjunction with electronica 2010, which is taking place from 9 – 12 November in Munich, SUYIN is presenting, among other things, its strong expertise in the area of battery connectors (in hall B4 at booth 624).

SUYIN’s line of stock battery connectors can, with a few exceptions, be divided up into two basic contact categories: spring contacts (max. typical current carrying capacity of up to 5 A) and blade contacts (max. typical current carrying capacity of up to 7 A). Battery connectors with spring contacts are particularly cost efficient, and they ensure user-friendly handling, because they establish direct contact with the battery’s contact surfaces. Due to their small dimensions, they are ideally suited for compact applications with tight space constraints. The plug-and-socket systems with blade contacts feature excellent robustness and mating reliability (sliding contacts). As a result, they are also well suited for industrial applications that operate under extreme environmental conditions.

Selection of stock connectors made easy: Whether spring contacts, blade contacts or other types of contacts are needed, when it comes to finding the right contact within its huge range of offerings, SUYIN does not leave its customers alone with (web) catalogs. On the basis of the application details, SUYIN’s onsite support staff determines the ideal solution in a particularly fast manner and in a way that is simple and convenient for the customer.

Customer-specific battery connectors from SUYIN make it possible to customize the design to match the end device. The ideal miniaturization that this allows offers the greatest possible space savings for the application. Furthermore, adhering to the “design-to-cost” principle ensures consistent realization of the least expensive solution – all the way to suitable packaging for automatic assembly.

Example of custom battery connectors: Two different battery connector versions for two distinct series of devices

Several of the many advantages are illustrated by the 250097GA series of battery connectors, which was developed to customer specifications. This battery connector, which is equipped with spring contacts for surface mounting, is available in two versions for two different series of devices. They each have different connector heights and different numbers of contacts as well as a different exterior design for the connector housing. Moreover, in accordance with customer specifications, a first-make/last-break spring contact, an additional SMT soldering contact and the possibility for employing screw fastening for ideal handling of extraction forces were integrated. The contact forces were also defined to meet customer-specific requirements. Two positioning posts with different diameters safeguard against improper alignment. Last but not least, the use of identical ground (earth) contacts in the spring area and in the soldering area for two different versions offers considerable potential for reducing the design and tool costs.
