RFI shielding solved by Harwin - Shield Can works with SMT clips

RFI Shield Cans from Harwin deliver excellent, cost-effective RFI/EMI screening

Harwin, the leading hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer, has expanded its popular EMC Shielding portfolio of surface mount PCB hardware components with the introduction of RFI Shield Cans which, when used with the company’s SMT RFI Shield Can Clips, provide excellent RFI and EMI protection to sensitive circuitry at PCB level.

Because the cans are mounted by simply pushing them into the surface mount clips, installation costs are minimised since there is no secondary processing required. More, cans can be easily removed for inspection/repair/rework with no fear of damage to the PCB. The clips ensure secure can retention, resistant to shock and vibration.

New RFI Shield Cans feature a mechanically-robust, simple five sided box design that saves cost when compared to fence and cover styles. Cans are made of Nickel Silver to ensure good screening and are available in a range of sizes to suit popular applications.

These cans provide a cost-effective method of delivering screening, since they enable manufacturers to optimise automated processes and eliminate expensive hand assembly processing. Beneficial for many markets, RFI Shield Cans will be used in applications including radio systems, wireless equipment and consumer electronics, where low cost, effective can retention needs to be combined with good shielding performance.
