Harwin adds larger size SMT shield clips  to handle wider range of RFI protective cans
Harwin, the leading manufacturer of connectors and interconnect solutions for high-reliability applications, has broadened the range of surface mount EMI/RFI shield clips it offers with the launch of its Maxi Clip, which handles protective cans with wall thicknesses of between 0.7 and 1mm.
The use of clips reduces assembly time and simplifies rework. Rather than hand-soldering shielding cans to a PCB as a secondary operation, cans are simply be pressed into clips which have been placed during the main automated surface mount assembly processing. Not only does this save time, it also reduces errors and scrap, and enables sensitive components to be inspected and, if necessary, lifted and replaced much more easily.

Comments Product Manager Paul Gillam: “To demonstrate the simplicity of these new clips, we have produced a short animation which shows how they enable users to realise savings during both initial production and rework.”

The new Maxi clips compliment Harwin’s Midi clips which handle cans with a wall thickness of 0.3mm and its Mini series devices which save PCB space and handle cans with a wall thickness of between 0.13 and 0.23mm. Supplied in industry-standard Tape & Reel packaging, Harwin’s EMI/RFI clips are targeted at telecoms, datacoms, data processing and in-car entertainment systems. They have proved successful in cost-effectively helping to protect sensitive ICs used in diverse applications such as the Bowman Military radio project and automotive SatNav and DVD players.
