The one trend that is consistent across virtually every electronic product today is the need to reduce package size. Squeezing more electrical and mechanical components into smaller environments is a challenge faced by many of today’s design engineers. The use of industrial fasteners that are sized to meet these requirements has become increasingly common, and miniature self-clinching fasteners are now a typical choice for many products and applications. If your particular product requires a miniature self-clinching standoff, JHP Fasteners can offer you a wide selection from which to choose.
Typical properties of the miniature self-clinching standoff would include:
- Material: Available in heat-treated carbon steel and 300 series stainless steel.
- Thread: Class 2B, MIL-S-7742; (6H ISO Metric).
- Heat-treated carbon steel is finished in Zinc Yellow.
- 300 series stainless steel is finished per passivated ASTM A380.
- Suitable for use in:
- The heat-treated carbon steel standoff is suitable for use in materials with HRB-80 or less.
- The 300 series stainless steel standoff is suitable for use in materials with HRB-70 or less.
- Available thread sizes: Inches: Available in #4-40. Metric: Available in M3.
- The miniature self-clinching standoff is ideally suited for use in applications with limited space. These industrial fasteners provide secure attachment of D-sub connectors to their respective backplanes. They also provide a flush mounting surface suitable for RFI/EMI gaskets.
- The miniature self-clinching standoff is typically used in sheet materials of cold-rolled steel or 5052-H34 Aluminum.
For any application that requires the fitting of many components into a limited space while, at the same time, maintaining mechanical and electrical integrity, it is imperative that active consideration be given to selection of the most appropriate industrial fasteners.
