New Coiled PC/Case Mount Battery Contacts
To support the Increasing demands for higher energy, lower weight cylindrical battery usage, Keystone has introduced our latest coil spring contacts designed to slide-into molded cases with no wire lead, direct placement onto a PCB.
Engineered with a contact design that adjusts to variations in battery length, these contacts assure low contact resistance and dependable connectivity by adjusting to variations in battery length. These new contacts also offer the convenience of being drop in replacements for standard leaf spring contacts . Contacts available can accommodate cylindrical batteries styles including A, AA, AAA and, CR2 cells virtually eliminating the need to specify brand and style
Manufactured from .024" (.61mm) thick, steel wire and supplied with nickel plating for superior performance in today's high tech devices. Supplied in a positive contact style (Cat. No 243 or 180) or negative contact style (Cat. No 242 or 179) and a dual contact style (Cat. No. 244 or 181) Availability is from stock through Keystone's global distribution network.

A new series of SMT PC Board Jumpers designed to link Circuit Board traces/tracks are the latest connectivity devices available from Keystone.
Quickly and easily set-up, these space-saving SMT jumpers are uniquely suited as alternative options where thru-hole jumper use is not feasible. As such, the new connectors are designed to provide ideal low profile circuit linkage and minimal footprint for high-density, high current PCB packages on power and aluminum backplanes. All PCB soldering applications, including reflow, may be utilized.
