Accu-Post PCB mountable terminals,
with Zierick’s exclusive Accu-Lok
retentive mounting feature, outperform
all other interference fit, press
fit and compliance fit type terminals. Developed for easy PCB assembly,
Accu-Post terminals eliminate the
need for the tight mounting hole
tolerance required with traditional
press and compliant fit terminals.
|Unlike traditional press and compliant fit models. Accu-Post terminals feature a unique mounting design that improves PCB quality and reduces instances of fractured, loose or misaligned posts.
The Accu-Lok mounting leg design
enters freely within the PCB mounting
hole. It mounts without producing
stress, deformation, cracks or warpage
to the PCB. Retention is accomplished
by a controlled splitting and forming
of the terminal leg. With a mounting
hole tolerance of ±0.003" (±0.076mm),
this produces superior retentive
strength, perpendicularity and solder
joint integrity. Forces due to mating,
withdrawal, vibration, shock, or temperature
cycles are not transferred to
the PCB solder joint. The instances of
fractured, loose, or misaligned terminals
and damaged solder joints are
Accu-Post terminals are available in
reeled format, in 0.045" (1.14mm)
square and 0.031" x 0.062" (0.79mm
x 1.57mm) post sizes. PCB assembly
is accomplished with semi- and fullyautomated
- Accu-Post terminals provide
accurate, secure, PCB mounting.
- Accu-Lok mounting permits the
use of mounting holes with a
diameter tolerance of ±0.003"
- Accu-Lok mounting assures
superior retentive strength,
perpendicularity and solder
- The Accu-Lok mounting feature
improves PCB quality as instances
of fractured, missing or misaligned
posts are eliminated.
- Assembly is achieved with Zierick
semi- or fully-automatic assembly
