EMC Shielding

Board Level Shielding (BLS), innovative designs for easy assembly

Harwin’s range of EMC Board Level Shielding products are innovative designs for easy assembly. With SMT clips and separate cans, secondary soldering operations are eliminated, and rework access is simple.

EMC Shield Cans

Harwin specialize in Nickel Silver cans in a simple 5-sided shape. Designed for use with Harwin’s SMT Shield Can Clips, no soldering is required on the can for easy fitting.

  • Eliminates hot spots due to hand or selective soldering as a second operation. Cans are assembled with a simple push operation.
  • Simple to rework – just pull the can out the clips to access the board underneath. Replace the can just as easily once finished.
  • Single-piece construction saves costs over complex fence-and-lid cans.

SMT Shield Can Clips

Harwin’s wide range of Shield Can clips are all Surface Mount, supplied in Tape and Reel packaging for automated assembly placement.

  • Clips are assembled at the same time as all other SMT components on the board – eliminates secondary soldering operations.
  • Wide range of shapes to cover shield thicknesses from 1mm down to 0.13mm.
  • Low profile options for minimal height cans, small footprint options for reduced space and extra-small cans.
  • Variety of insertion force, including vibration-tested versions.
  • Improves signal integrity by eliminating through-holes that interfere with the ground plane.

Shield Can Kit

Everything you need to make your own customized size of shield can! Award-winning kit includes two pre-scored sheets, 24 Shield Can Clips and an instruction sheet. Just add a ruler and a pair of scissors.

  • Scored at 5mm intervals – simply cut the blank along the scores, then fold the 4 edges down.
  • Ultimate flexibility for developers – try out different sizes for prototyping and development work.
