Keystone Electronics have developed a new group of low profile clips, which firmly secure inserted batteries and withstand shock and vibration.
The low profile clips feature ‘flow hole’ SMT solder tail design, which enhances joint strength and assures battery retention. At the same time, low profiles make the clips suitable for dense PCB placements.
The new SMT clips, available from NPA , are made of 0.012"(0.30mm) thickness, nickel plated steel and is available in bulk (part #53) or on tape and reel (part#53TR) with 125 pieces per 15.0 inch reel.
A 44mm wide polystyrene carrier tape, meeting ANSI/EIA-481 standards, is used as the reel with parts mounted on a 24mm pitch.
