Meeting the Needs of OEM Applications: New Everett Charles Technologies Battery Probes

Four new members in the ECT BIP family – specifically designed for the OEM market

Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) recently expanded its portfolio of Battery Interconnect Probes by adding four new probes to the well-established BIP family: BIP-8, BIP-9, BIP-10 and BIP-12. These new products provide customers additional options for overall length, compliance, mounting and force.

ECT battery probes are used in a wide range of applications that include docking stations, data transmission, PCB interposers, and contacts for connector assemblies for medical, mil/aero, transportation and more. Typically battery probes are contained in modules where consistent, long-life, low-resistance, compliant electrical and mechanical connections are required.

Spring probe based solutions can maintain consistent electro-mechanical characteristics in excess of required mission cycles. When mating planar tolerances pose a challenge, or a longer reach is required, spring probes are the preferred solution. ECT’s versatile line of battery interconnect probes provides design flexibility to match performance, cost, and assembly requirements. In addition, these products can be modified or custom designed to meet specific project requirements.

BIP Battery Probes offer superior durability in high cycle life applications and feature industry leading current carrying capacity of 5.0A and probe resistance of under 50 mOhm.

Tony DeRosa, Product Manager, explains: “We understand the need of our customers for a greater range in mechanical form factors at a competitive cost point. With our design expertise and manufacturing capabilities we can help bring competitive products to market faster.”
