EZ-SMT Board Sockets designed for automated production; saves assembly time and costs
Salem NH, USA... Harwin, the leading manufacturer of hi-rel interconnect solutions and cost-saving PCB hardware products, has expanded its EZ-BoardWare range of surface mount PCB hardware products with the introduction of a new SMT Board Socket which enables considerable cost savings.
Harwin's innovative EZ-BoardWare family of surface mount products improve manufacturing flexibility, reduce manufacturing costs save space and improve in-field maintenance. EZ-SMT Board Sockets are a much cheaper alternative to turned contact PCB sockets for less demanding applications, and in common with all EZ-BoardWare products, are designed for automated production processes, so they withstand surface mount assembly and come in standard tape and reel packaging.
Comments Product Manager Dave Humphreys: "It's important to choose the correct device to match the application. Harsh operating conditions may mean that turned sockets are required; however our EZ-SMT Board Sockets meet most requirements at a fraction of the cost."
