A range of surface mount wire management cable clips manufactured by Harwin are now available from Clarke & Severn Electronics , and are well suited for use in high volume commercial and industrial markets, as well as consumer electronics applications.
These cable clips are available in four different sizes, and are specifically designed to be automatically placed and soldered directly to the PCB, saving time and money.
Much smaller than equivalent plastic wire management clips, metal cable clips from Harwin are placed directly onto solder pads, eliminating the need to drill retaining holes in the PCB. This offers further space and cost savings.
These new clips are also ultra low profile and do no protrude through the PCB, increasing design flexibility, and are assembled at the same time as the rest of the surface mount components.
Supplied on tape and reel, and fully compatible with automated manufacturing and soldering processes, the metal cable clips offer solid mechanical performance and are available in four different sizes to accommodate a range of wires between 1.0mm and 3.0mm in diameter.
These new metal surface mount clips:
- eliminate secondary assembly processing
- provide a secure positive retention to PCB
- save space; and
- put less restrictions on the PCB layout.
