ZIF Circuit Board Retainers
ZIF circuit board retainers are self-contained thermally conductive assemblies that can be mounted to any flat metal surface to provide an effective thermal path for uniform heat transfer. The unique design applies uniform pressure along the entire length of the retainer, which avoids the PCB warping and hot spots that may occur with competing designs. CTS ZIF Circuit Board Retainers have unmatched thermal performance of up to 0.9 deg. C-in/W.
ZIF retainers employ proven thermally conductive materials, including aluminum housings and a beryllium-copper spring. They support circuit boards from 1.5 to 12.0 in. in length and feature ¼ turn quick locking action with visual indication of locked condition for ease of installation.
