Provide direct grounding path for coax cables, reduce assembly time, save space

Harwin, the leading manufacturer of hi-rel interconnect solutions and cost-saving PCB hardware products, has expanded its range of EZ-BoardWare surface mount cable clips which can now also be used to help reduce interference when using coax cables.

Harwin’s EZ-BoardWare family of 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, saving time, costs and space. A further advantage is that they do not degrade and become brittle like the plastic devices they are superseding.

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 – intriguingly – 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, significantly improving EMC performance of the system.

Comments Product Manager, Dave Humphreys: “EZ-Cable Clips are not only very cost-effective, they save space, reduce interference and last longer than traditional plastic products.”
