MICRODOT Connectors MCK and MCD High Density Microminiature “D” Connectors described in this catalog comprise a complete connector system, which is adaptable to a numerous variety of form factors. Low engaging force is achieved by the manner in which the twist pin contacts are designed. By constructing the male contact as a breathing helical spring, electrical contact is achieved at many points around the periphery of the pin bundle rather than at a few discrete points, as in conventional pin designs.
