Harwin has expanded its EZBoardware range with the introduction of three RFI shield clips suitable for small and low-profile shield cans with wall thicknesses of between 0.15mm and 1.0mm. The clips are suitable for use in markets, ranging from consumer electronics through to industrial, instrumentation and control systems.

The new additions to the range include two clips measuring 3.9mm in length, allowing users to fix smaller-sized cans to the PCB using this cost-effective method.

The range of clips now available also includes the S0961-46R, specifically designed to provide significantly higher retention forces on the shield can, typically up by 30 per cent, suitable for those users seeking to maximise retention of the shielding can to the board.

Supplied taped and reeled, EZShield can clips are designed to be automatically placed and surface mounted to the PCB, saving time-consuming, costly and potentially damaging secondary processing operations. The clips provide secure retention of RFI/EMI shield cans, resisting shock and vibration, while facilitating removal and replacement, making them suitable for adjustment, repair and maintenance purposes

According to product manager Paul Gillam, the new clips provide a cost-effective method for securing shield cans and busbars to a PCB substrate. Auto-placement of the clips allows post-assembly soldering and desoldering operations to be eliminated and leads to a reduction in PCB damage caused by local soldering operations. He added that the shield can style that matches these clips is a simple five-sided box design, rather than the more costly fence and cover types specified by some competitors.

Typical applications 

  • Radio systems
  • Wireless equipment
  • Consumer electronics
