What do tungsten rivet contacts do?

Tungsten rivet contacts play an important role in car horns and other electrical equipment.
The main functions are reflected in the following four aspects:


"Circuit Making and Breaking"

Tungsten rivet contacts are used as contact points in switches, responsible for making or breaking a circuit. When the circuit needs to be energized, the contacts touch each other to allow current to pass; when the circuit needs to be disconnected, the contacts separate and the current is interrupted.


"High melting point, arc resistance"

Tungsten has an extremely high melting point, allowing tungsten rivet contacts to withstand high temperatures without deforming or melting. In addition, tungsten also has strong arc resistance, which helps prevent discharge due to high voltage between contacts and ensures the stability and safety of the circuit.


"Low resistance, efficient conduction"

Tungsten has excellent electrical conductivity, allowing current to pass through contacts effectively, reducing power loss and heat generation, and improving the efficiency of electrical equipment.


"Durable and stable"

Tungsten contacts are known for their durability and long life. They can maintain stable performance over long periods of use, reducing the frequency of maintenance and replacement. At the same time, they also have good corrosion resistance and are particularly suitable for use in humid, corrosive or harsh environments, such as automotive interiors.
