Harwin is extending its range of EZ-BoardWare surface mount cable clips that can now also be used to help reduce interference when using coax cables.
Harwin's EZ-BoardWare surface-mount PCB boardware products replace traditional components that usually require a secondary assembly process. Cable management devices, for example, are usually bulky and screwed to the board after all the other components have been automatically placed. In contrast, Harwin's EZ-Cable Clips are small and tidy and are surface-mounted along with every other standard device, thereby saving time, costs and space. A further advantage is that they do not degrade and become brittle like the plastic devices.
Originally offered in four sizes covering 1-3mm cable diameters, the range now includes devices that can manage two 0.9mm diameter wires side by side or one 1.32mm diameter mini coaxial cable. When used with coaxial cables, if the outer cover is stripped back to reveal the screening braid, EZ-Cable Clips can provide a direct path to a ground lane, thereby significantly improving EMC performance of the system.
Product Manager Paul Gillam states: "EZ-Cable Clips are not only very cost-effective, they save space, reduce interference and last longer than traditional plastic products."
