• Erni has released its high-current PCB Power Elements at Jacarem. The key elements of these terminals include current capability of up to 10 A per individual PCB pin and rugged construction to sustain even the most extreme conditions. To achieve these outstanding mechanical specs, the elements are attached to the PCB with Press-Fit-Technology, which has clear advantages over soldering or other methods to assemble products on the PCB.

Technical Specification

 Numerous processing advantages:

  • no tearing of the circuit paths caused by the “jet effect” during pressfit
  • minimal swarf formation during pressfit
  • less danger of delamination and therefore undesired shorts due to moisture trapped in the pcb
  • greater reliability during temperature change and vibration
  • improved process safety of the press in/out process
  • greater hole tolerance with lower cost for the pcb
  • improved pressfit force adjustment application
  • less pressfit force for high number of poles,less stress on the pcb
  • general stress minimisation of pcb
  • Sizes with Flexible Pressfit Zone: M5, M6, M8, M10
  • Sizes with massive Pressfit Zone: M3, M4, M5, M6, M8 and M10
