Cost reduction and cost-effectiveness are general objectives of entrepreneurial activity. As EMS service providers and OEMs are in global competition, these objectives also play an increasingly important role in electronics production for the consumer goods industry. That’s why Emil Otto GmbH further developed a portion of its fluxes into granulate-based concentrates. “Our new flux concentrates […]READ MORE
Current lead-free soldering temperatures can damage temperature sensitive components.
Moreover they can cause a shift in the properties of some components which can impact the functionality of sensitive electronic devices.
An easy way to solve this problem is to use a soldering alloy with a lower melting point that allows for lower soldering temperatures. Currently however these alloys have limitations in shock and vibration resistance.
Schurter expands its CSO heavy duty fuse clip family with a cost-effective tin-plated version. The CSO clip, designed for 10.3mm diameter fuses, is suitable for applications with voltages up to 1500VAC/VDC and currents to 32A. It is available at distributor Rutronik.READ MORE
