Self-Retaining T-1 LED Mounting Spacers

Self-Retaining T-1 LED Mounting Spacers

Keystone Electronics Corp.'s new series of self-retaining, T-1 LED mounting spacers are designed for uniform and perpendicular LED positioning and can reducing assembly costs. The self-aligning LED spacers feature internal retention "teeth" that secure spacers onto LED leads, prior to assembly on PCB's. The design also eliminates the possibility of LED lead shorting by separating and retaining component leads while inserting into a PCB. No special tools are required to preassemble LED's to spacers. The new spacers feature 0.020 inch (0.5 mm) legs incorporated into the molded Nylon 6/6 structure to serve the dual purpose of heat dissipation and easy post-solder cleaning. Overall height of the spacers range from 0.120 to 0.925 inch (3.0 to 23.5 mm). Keystone also has "Universal" and "Self-aligning" LED spacer mounts for Tri-lead and Bi-lead T-1 and T-1 3/4 LED's.
