ELECTRONICS: With the introduction of a new selection of rugged, 1/3N Lithium Battery Holders for surface or through-hole mounting, Keystone Electronics Corp. continues to expand the availability of premium battery holders. These new battery holders are supplied with durable, heat-resistant, UL 94V-0- rated nylon housings ideal for all soldering and reflow operations. The SMT version (Catalog #498) features gold-plated phosphor bronze contacts. The THM version (Catalog #497) incorporates tin-plated phosphor bronze contacts and the heat-resistant nylon housings. The THM types mount directly on PCBs, securely positioned during wave soldering and placement. Both holders accept 1/3N 3-V Cell Lithium batteries from major manufacturers and are part of the company’s continuing growth selection of battery hardware specialties including contacts, holders, retainers and straps in a variety of materials for coin cell, button cell and cylindrical batteries. In addition to a broad line of quality interconnects, hardware and components, the firm maintains an application engineering group which is supported by expert stamping, machining and assembly operations.
