What would you call a "Wiper"
October 30, 2011
I have searching mouser for 1/2 hour now and for the life of me, I can not figure out what to call one of these things. "Wiper" gets me nowhere. I am looking for a small copper contact, sorta springy, that would ride along an exposed trace on a PCB. Specifically, I am trying to transfer power through a rotating joint. This would involve 6 concentric rings etched on a pcb with a 6-pronged "wiper" on the rotating part above.
What is the fancy name for these things?
