3D CAD Drawings for Our Contact Pins are Now Available

Posted by Jill Mayer on Jul 10, 2013 12:57:00 PM


We have recently launched a new online CAD catalog, using ThomasNet's Navigator Platform. The catalog, intented to "enhance our customers' experience by increasing the level of customer support", does just that. The Navigator Platform is linked to our website so that users can pop in and out of it seamlessly. It is a comprehensive catalog that includes all of our contact pins broken down into the following categories:

Each part number has technical specifications, a sales drawing, and 2D and 3D CAD models. The user can search for the contact pin in multiple ways, such as part number, dimension, tolerance, or end type. Once they find the contact pin they need, users can download it and insert it into their design.

Users may also compare multiple contact pins to determine the best fit for their application. See below for a sample comparison. In this example, we are comparing several Square Wire Pins with various retention features.
