November 11, 2013

Our latest innovation for 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.

Contacts 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.

Positive contact (Part # 110) and 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.
