Laird Expands EMI Shielding Portfolio with Edge Guide Clip-on Strip

New Fingerstock product designed for electronic applications reduces installation labor

Laird, a global technology company and an industry leader in high-performance and cost-effective EMI Management solutions, today announced the release of a new Fingerstock product, the Edge Guide Clip-on Strip. Ideal for virtually every application where Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) need to be grounded and/or shielded, this new product reduces installation and labor costs and is available in custom lengths.

A customer installing a 10cm, or 8 finger strip, could reduce installation time by up to 80% using the Edge Guide Clip-on Strip as opposed to performing a typical installation with 8 traditional single clips. The strip is specifically designed to offer excellent grounding and/or shielding contact from the PCB to a card guide on a rack or housing inside electronics. The unique snap-in feature of the contact fingers prevents any potential snagging, allowing for bi-directional sliding contact along the edges. The strip is made from beryllium copper (BeCu), it is RoHs compliant and available with various plating options, including tin or nickel. Low compression forces allow for easy installation of the card.

“The new design of the Edge Guide Clip-on Strip offers customers flexibility in the design phase due to customizable length options,” said Manuel Klesinski, product manager for Laird. “This new product is based on one of our most popular PCB edge guide contact clips that was previously only available in single parts. We were able to address customer requests and develop a strip version that offers benefits over the commonly supplied single parts.”

Laird offers a wide range of shielding and gasket products in a variety of configurations including slot, clip-on, board-level shields, Fingerstock, strips and rings as well as custom solutions. Laird provides the knowledge, innovation, and resources to ensure exceptional grounding and shielding performance and customer satisfaction for applications in the automotive electronics, industrial, medical, IT/computing and consumer markets.
