Beryllium Copper Contact Material Solves Automotive Electronic Connector Problems 910708

In the automobile, technology and environmental demands have evolved beyond the performance capabilities of traditionally used connector contact materials such as brass (C26000), tin-brass (C42500), phosphor bronze (C51000) and copper iron (C19400), (see Table 1). Beryllium copper alloys (C17410 and C17200) meet the performance demands of the new automotive environment. With a combination of strength, conductivity and resistance to stress relaxation, there is good reason why beryllium copper contact material is transitioning into automotive applications along with high performance electronics.
