TTI, Inc. exclusively launches Harwin’s new SMD Cable Clip range as part of EZ-Boardware PCB hardware promotion
TTI, Inc., the global distributor of passive, interconnect, relay & switch and discrete components, is exclusively launching Harwin’s new range of surface mount wire management EZ-Cable Clips as part of a promotion covering the Portsmouth-based manufacturer’s EZ BoardWare range of surface mount products that improve manufacturing flexibility, reduce manufacturing costs and improve in-field maintenance.
EZ-Cable Clips have been specifically designed to be automatically-placed and soldered directly to the PCB, saving time and money. They replace plastic devices which require installation by hand – a time consuming and very costly exercise. Harwin’s metal clips are physically much smaller than equivalent plastic wire management clips. They are placed directly onto solder pads, thus negating the need to drill retaining holes in the PCB, offering further space and cost savings. More, the new clips are ultra low profile and, unlike the old, bulky plastic clips, they do no protrude through the PCB increasing design flexibility.
TTI’s promotion also covers other EZ Boardware products including EZ-Shield Clips which can be surface mounted, allowing an RFI shielding to be simply pushed into place during final assembly. EZ-RFI Fingers facilitating electrical contact between PCB and metal cases, EZ-Jumper Links enable designers to eliminate through-hole vias and multi-layer construction, and EZ-Test Points provides technicians with easy-to-see test points and minimize the risk of PCB damage by incorrect test methods.
Comments John Sandy, European Director of Supplier Marketing, Connectors, TTI, Inc.: “Harwin has designed all the products in its EZ-Boardware range to address and solve a particular production challenge, removing secondary manufacturing operations, simplifying assembly and cutting costs.” Adds Paul Gillam, Harwin’s Product Manager: “Production issues must be solved at the design stage through the use of innovative products such as our EZ-Boardware range. TTI is known for its design-in expertise and thorough product knowledge, so we are confident that they will be able to help our customers get the best solution for their requirement. ”
