TBA Electro Conductive Products (ECP) has introduced new small size beryllium copper EMI/RFI shielding strips that are designed for use in applications where very narrow gaps are encountered.
The new ECP620 gaskets are ideal for bidirectional applications including sub-rack assemblies, plug-in units, front panels, backplanes and other shielding and grounding enclosure applications requiring high shielding effectiveness for narrow gaps.
ECP620 small size gaskets feature an uncompressed (free) height of just 2mm and require compression force of 16 to 50kg/m for 25 to 50% compression respectively (1.5 to 1mm). The gaskets are manufactured from 0.5mm thick beryllium copper and are supplied in 406mm long strips. Fingers are 1.06mm wide on 1.52mm pitch and strip width is 5.33mm uncompressed.
TBA ECP’s new ECP620 small size gaskets feature pressure sensitive (stick-on) mounting and soft no-snag fingers. They also meet the requirements of the RoHS and WEEE directives.
Like all TBA ECP’s beryllium copper gaskets, the new small size designs are available in a wide range of plating options including clean and bright (unsolderable) as standard, solderable unplated, gold, silver, tin lead, bright tin, bright nickel, zinc/clear chromate and electroless nickel among others.
Beryllium copper shielding strips offer excellent spring qualities and long life. Other important characteristics include low closing forces and high attenuation exceeding 100dB for many styles.
Complementing its range of beryllium copper shielding strips, TBA ECP also supplies stainless steel versions of its low-profile and pressure sensitive mounting gaskets. These extend the choice of materials available to design engineers and provide hard-wearing and long-lasting EMI/RFI shielding in a wide range of applications.
TBA ECP’s comprehensive range of standard beryllium copper fingerstock delivers cost effective EMI/RFI shielding with high attenuation. Custom shielding is also available for board-level shielding and connector gaskets.
