Würth Elektronik WE-SMGS: Surface Mount Solderable Gasket

WE-SMGS series surface mount solderable gaskets are the perfect alternatives to the WE-SECF contact finger series. If the contact fingers cannot reach the desired mechanical dimensions, the WE-SMGS series is the better solution. The WE-SMGS series can be used by a pick and place machine and reflow soldered. To keep the best performance, it is recommended to solder the gaskets during the last PCB reflow process. The gaskets are designed with a thermal resistant foam which causes high elasticity, allowing it to be compressed and then recovered to its original shape. Check out the buyer’s Guide online
