1. An apparatus comprising:
a first component including a contact surface;
a second component including a housing;
a pogo-pin mounted in said housing to make resilient electrical contact with said first component via said contact surface; and
a conductive electromagnetic shield completely surrounding said pogo-pin when making resilient electrical contact with said contact surface and mounted on said housing for telescoping reciprocation into and out of said housing, said shield having an opening that, when resilient electrical contact is made with said surface, contacts said surface to complete an enclosure that completely surrounds said pogo pin, said enclosure including said contact surface, said housing and said shield, such that a totally shielded electrical connection is made between said first and second components.
