Keystone Electronics has introduced its latest line of surface-mount enclosure coin cell contacts. These new contacts provide a cost effective, dependable connection for coin cell batteries in self-contained battery compartments.
These contacts require minimal board space and allow easy access for installation and removal of a coin cell battery within a battery enclosure. Ultra-low profile and compact design make it ideal for small hand-held controls, key fobs, personal medical devices, digital timers, and many industrial and consumer applications.
The new entries are manufactured from gold plated phosphor bronze, offering low contact resistance and assuring easy reflow soldering for a reliable solder joint. The spring tension of the contacts will adjust to all variations in battery heights for dependable connectivity. Contacts can accommodate coin cell batteries with diameters from 16mm and larger.
The Positive contact (Part # 110) and the Negative contact (Part #112) are available in bulk or on tape and reel for use with most vacuum and mechanical pick-and-place assembly systems.
The company’s full line of battery hardware also consists of SMT and THM products including contacts, clips, holders, retainers and straps in assorted materials for coin cells and batteries. In addition to a comprehensive line of interconnect hardware and components, Keystone provides application engineering services for product modification and special design requirements, supported by pro-active stamping, machining and assembly operations.
