Würth Elektronik protection kits are available from RS Components
Engineers can test parts in a design during product prototype development, using kits created by Würth Elektronik. The kits include a selection of EMC components, for signal and power integrity (common mode chokes and chip bead ferrites), overvoltage protection (varistors) and shielding materials.
The WE-SHC design kit for shielding cabinets have an assortment of standard tin-plated parts with a shielding effectiveness of up to 60dB from 500MHz to 3GHz. Consisting of a grid frame and removable cover, the kit is available in both THT and SMT versions. The shielding cabinets prevent EMI radiation from the PCB and to keep sensitivity low for RF output stages, RF input and amplifier stages, oscillators, and EMC sensitive parts in plastic cases.
There is also Würth Elektronik’s ShielDIY design kit is suitable for fast prototyping, says RS Components. It contains a 0.2mm thick nickel-silver sheet, which offers the same performance of tin-plated steel, with lines etched every 5mm for easy bending and cutting. To build the shielding cabinet prototype, engineers can cut along the etched lines before bending to obtain the desired shape. The kit is available in both through hole and surface mount versions.
The WE-SECF SMT EMI contact finger design kit offers a selection of parts in various shapes and sizes. The copper-beryllium (CuBe) and gold-plated (Au) materials make the EMI fingers resistant to corrosion, high temperatures and wear. Contact fingers are typically used as a connection between signal and power supply boards, or PCBs and other external elements.
Würth Elektronik’s range of circuit protection design kits are available now from RS in the EMEA and APAC regions.
RS Components stocks more than 500,000 industrial and electronic products, sourced from over 2,500 leading suppliers. It has operations in 32 countries and trades through multiple channels and ship over 50,000 parcels a day.
