Compliant connectors offer superior durability in high cycle life applications.

Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) announces its new Compliant Connector Group (CCG) to provide flexible solutions for interconnect needs.

Compliant connectors offer superior durability in high cycle life applications. Pogo-based solutions can maintain consistent electromechanical characteristics in excess of one million cycles. When mating planar tolerances pose a challenge or a longer reach is required, pogo-based connectors are the preferred solution.

ECT’s CCG uses a range of innovative compliant technologies as well as conventional spring probe technologies to build custom connectors and pogos to customer specifications. The group supports both NPI and HVM applications. Machined bodies in a variety of materials are used for small run custom applications. For higher volume applications, molded bodies are used. Connector packaging can be optimized for downstream processes using tape-and-reel or other techniques. This highly interactive design phase from inception to volume presents a simplified “walk-through” approach that benefits both the customer and the end product.

ECT provides a broad spectrum of products, ranging from rugged high power solutions rated over 75 amps to dense .2mm pitch interposers. High reliability solu­tions for harsh environments and stringent specifications also are available.


Everett Charles Technologies is a subsidiary of Dover Corporation (NYSE: DOV) a leading manufacturer of electrical test products and services, including Pogo test contacts, semiconductor test products, bare-board automatic test systems, and bare and loaded PCB test fixtures.  ECT manufacturing, service, and support facilities are ISO registered with locations throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia.  The company has been awarded numerous patents and participates actively in developing industry standards.  Corporate offices for Everett Charles Technologies are located at 700 E. Harrison Ave., Pomona, California, USA, 91767.
