  • Description

    Applications:

    The Series 165/166 is an economical PCB retention solution for sheet metal applications. Constructed of conductive beryllium copper, the independent spring design provides board retention for low shock and vibration applications while also providing a thermal path.

    Installation:

    Two retainers are recommended, one at the top of the PCB board and one at the bottom. Retainers can be fixed to the sheet metal enclosure with screws or rivets. Coined edges then allow for smooth insertion and extraction and prevent PCB damage.

    Note:

    From time to time, nVent may modify its product specifications to be in conformity with applicable industry, military or other relevant standards. Unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing, cancelled or superseded military specifications may be certified to the latest or superseding specifications. Products manufactured in conformity with such specifications will be deemed fully compliant whether or not you have been notified of such modifications, even if different from the original specification or those referenced by the customer.
