Suitable for both wiping and sliding action, the individual clips are supplied in tape and reel packaging for automated placement, and reduce manufacturing costs by eliminating time-consuming secondary assembly operations.
A significant addition to Harwin”s existing range RFI/EMI spring contacts, the new devices are available in a variety of different styles. Uncompressed heights of between 1.7mm and 7.0mm provide greater design flexibility, and good spring properties provide improved electrical connection/grounding between a PCB and various other electronic components – other PCBs, speakers, fans, aerials, shields etc – even if the equipment is subject to vibration. A variety of plating finishes, including gold and tin are offered.
Commenting Product Manager, Paul Gillam said “These EZ- Spring Contacts take up minimal space on a PCB and are mechanically strong, capable of providing a good electrical connection that can be easily mated and separated many times. More, they provide a low cost solution being auto-placeable by industry-standard equipment.”
EZ- Spring Contacts are suitable for use in virtually all industry sectors across a wide range of products including mobile and smart phones, sat navs, MP3 players, cameras and video systems, tablet PCs, laptops, PCs, brown and white goods, medical and industrial equipment.
