BivarOpto(TM) Introduces 90° Locating Pin LED Holders Featuring Superior PCB Board Retention for High-Shock and Vibration Applications
IRVINE, Calif. - Aug. 30, 2002- BivarOpto(TM), the Optoelectronics Division of Bivar, Inc., has introduced a complete series of Locating Pin Holders for single, bi-level and tri-level T-1 (3mm) LED display applications. Manufactured from black 94-VO rated nylon material, the new H-LP Series Holders provide extra PCB retention and uniform elevation during processing and handling, making them ideally suited for high-shock and vibration environments such as automotive, aerospace and mobile communication applications.
LEDs are perfectly aligned on equally spaced centers and rigidity is achieved via the unit's bifurcated locating pin, which holds the LED firmly in place. Narrow widths from 0.170 inch (4.32mm) and rigid retention allow virtual side-by-side placement, saving valuable board space for station arrays. The new holders accommodate virtually any type of T-1 (3mm) LED, including RGB, white, purple, UV, and industry-standard colors to provide optimum display flexibility in design, while the single level H-180C-LP series accommodates tri-lead T-1 (3mm) LEDs for more sophisticated messaging applications.
The H-XXXX-LP Series is immediately available from stock with typical pricing in production quantities of 1000 from $85.00 each. For more information, contact Bivar, Inc. at 800-SPACERS or visit Bivar online at www.bivar.com.
