A new, much narrower width retainer for CR2032 and CR2025 coin cells is now available as part of the extensive battery connectivity line of products offered by Keystone Electronics.
This new retainer features an extremely narrow profile and is designed for battery insertion and removal from both directions. The retainer is engineered with dual springs ensuring low contact resistance and connectivity. The retainer is clearly marked with polarity indication. This versatile design makes it ideal for high density PCB packaging particularly with single use RFID and price sensitive consumer applications.
Manufactured of phosphor bronze with solder tails located outside of the retainer body to ease solder joint visual inspections. For retainers with a nickel plating for low contact resistance and high temperature soldering packaged in bulk, request Catalog #3036. For retainers packaged in a 500-piece Tape-and-Reel, specify Catalog #3036TR. For Gold plated versions of this retainer, request Catalog #3048 (bulk) and 3048TR (500 piece tape and Reel).
The new retainer operates smoothly with vacuum and mechanical pick-and-place assembly systems. Retainers are compatible with lead free and traditional reflow processing.
