I have a scientific piece of equipment that has very thin silver wire (they are 0.008'' in diameter, with teflon coating, for a total outer diameter of 0.011''). I need to connect this equipment to another, but the wire are very brittle and easy to break.
I would therefore like to create a cable (using ~22AWG copper wire) with a connector on the end, and a mating connector attached to the silver wires.
I need a connector that's fairly secure but can be connected/disconnected easily. So far, I've made do with pomona mini banana plugs, but the thin silver wires are difficult to screw in and make a good contact, and they usually break at the connector after a few cycles of connect/disconnect.
Does anyone have a better suggestion?
