These contacts are also known as Grounding / RFI contacts, Spring or Shield Fingers, or Antenna Contacts (as used in the smartphone industry). The Spring Contacts can be assembled to PCBs and used as grounding or shielding contacts or for low voltage electrical connection between PCBs, antenna feeds or similar.
They are supplied on Tape and Reel packaging and are ideally suited for automated placement. Mounted in a row, the contacts can provide an excellent RFI shielding connection for metal doors or other cabinet enclosures. The contact design ensures positive contact with the mating surface and is tolerant to both wiping and sliding action.
These spring contacts are available in a number of height variants to suit most application requirements and conform to RoHS legislation.
