Hyperboloid Contact Systems -Image

QA Technology integraMate® Contact Systems use high quality, high reliability hyperboloid contacts intended for a wide range of applications. Our patented design provides lower insertion force, closer connector pin spacing, and better protection from damage than competitive designs. In addition, our automated manufacturing equipment typically allows us to ship within 24-48 hours of order.

Competitive Advantages
The integraMate Hyperboloid Contact System has three clear advantages over existing hyperboloid contacts:

  • Lower and more uniform insertion and extraction forces
  • Smaller contact diameter allows closer spacing and higher connector density
  • Better protection of the hyperbolic wire cage from accidental damage, since the cage lies behind a strong tubular entrance


  • Low insertion/extraction force
  • Low electrical resistance
  • Long cycle life
  • Immune to shock and vibration
  • Positive wiping action
  • Easy contact removal using available extraction tools
  • Small external contact diameter compared to other hyperboloid contacts allowing closer spacing
  • Tubular entrance to protect spring wire cage and guide mating (closed entry)
  • Intermates with other hyperboloid contacts known in the industry
