 PEM Aluminum and Stainless Steel MicroPEM® TackSert® Pins for Compact Electronics
 Aluminum and stainless steel microPEM® TackSert® pins from PennEngineering® provide cost-effective alternatives to micro screws for attaching top panels to base panels or chassis in compact electronic assemblies. They will attach top panels of any material to a base or chassis manufactured from common cast metals (such as magnesium and aluminum) or plastics (such as ABS and printed circuit boards). The pins ultimately eliminate many of the costs and issues associate with screws and integrate unique design features promoting reliable and effective performance.
TackSert® pins offer multiple advantages over screws by eliminating needs for mating threads from tapped holes or inserts and the rework frequently required due to screw cross-threading and driver bit “cam-out”. Patches intended to prevent fastener loosening in service are unnecessary.
Among design features, a tapered tip assists in pin location during the installation process, a specially engineered diagonal broaching knurl (instead of threads) creates a firm interference fit without hole-tolerance issues, and a low-profile head minimized protrusion on the top panel.
The TackSert® fastener family includes TK4™ pins (400 Series stainless steel) fro broaching into castings, brittle materials, printed circuit boards, and plastics and TKA™ aluminum pins for broaching into printed circuit boards and plastics. The fasteners are available in a variety of lengths to accommodate a range of top panel thicknesses. Press-in installation without heat or ultrasonics is achieved simply by preparing properly sized mounting holes in the top sheet and base panel or chassis, placing the pin through the hole in the top sheet and into the through or blind mounting hole of the base panel, and then applying sufficient squeezing force using punch and anvil until the head of the pin contact the top sheet. Pins can even be installed automatically for high volume jobs.

These new standards will impact medical device manufacturers as well as the power supply manufacturers.  Although the transition date is now set for December 31, 2018, UL Medical EMC experts advise that FDA’s publication “Design Considerations for Devices Intended for Home Use –Guidance for Industry and Food and Drug Administration Staff” suggests using the 4th edition of IEC 60601-1-2 for Home Healthcare environments now to cover test levels which may not be appropriately addressed in the 3rd edition.

Following are the details on the updated standards:

Key Changes

Following are some of the key changes in the 4th edition.
Use environments are split into three areas:
• Professional Healthcare Facility Environment
• Home Healthcare Environment
• Special Environment

Small clinic and Home Use Equipment

  • Need CISPR 11 Class B emission, IEC 61000-3-2 Class A harmonic distortion, and IEC 61000-3-3 voltage fluctuation and flicker.
  • The home use equipment needs 10 V/m, 80 MHz to 1 GHz immunity.

Equipment installed in an aircraft or an ambulance

  • Additional testing per ISO 7137 and CISPR 25 applies.

For an EUT with auto ranging power supply

  • Most tests are required to be performed at one nominal voltage only.
  • Only voltage interruptions need to be performed at maximum and minimum voltage if the rated voltage range is >25% of lowest rated input voltage.

Immunity Test Levels

Immunity test levels increase:
• The range of testing for radiated immunity harmonized up to 2.7GHz (up from 2.5GHz in the 3rd edition)
• Magnetic immunity at 30A/m
• Conducted immunity at 6V in ISM bands
• ESD at 8kV contact and 15kV air (up from 6kV and 8kV in the 3rd edition)
• Voltage dips and interruptions at additional phase angles

In addition to these Immunity changes:
• Immunity levels harmonized with IEC 60601-1-11
• Immunity testing now follows the same port-by-port convention of the IEC 61000-6 series of Generic EMC standards
• Immunity to proximity fields from RF wireless communications equipment is now included, and is based on a minimum separation distance of 30cm
• There is a procedure for continuing to test a product that is damaged by an immunity test signal

And risk management is expanded:

  • Manufacturers will be required to submit a test plan and the risk analysis document before testing
    • Operating modes are based on risk analysis
    • Reasonably foreseeable electromagnetic disturbances (Annex F) shall be taken into account in the risk management process
    • The risk management process is used to determine whether subsystem testing is allowed
    • The minimum separation distance are considered in the risk management process
    • Reduced test levels (e.g. based on the intended use of the product) must be justified in the risk management file

PEM TY-D Self-Clinching Cable Tie Mounts and Hooks-

Learn more about some of the new and innovative products we represent.

PEM® TY-D® Self-Clinching cable tie-mounts and hooks create secure metal attachment points for mounting wires and cables to electronic chassis or enclosures. The hardware installs quickly and reliably in thin steel or aluminum panels, eliminates any need for screws or adhesives and can be positioned permanently at specified locations and angles to promote optimized layouts. On the reverse side of hardware installation, panels remain smooth without protrusions to enhance the appearance of an assembly, maintain clearance requirements, and protect against potential EMI / RFI interference or contamination of electronics by dirt or dust.

PEM® TY-D® hardware includes TD™ cable tie-mounts and TDO™ hooks. Both types are RoHS compliant and offered in several sizes for installation in metal panels as thin a .040″ / 1.02mm and as thick as .125″ / 3.18mm.

TD™ tie-mounts allow users to slide ties easily through the hardware’s “eye” for fast cable mounting. TDO™ hooks enable users to attach, remove, and return tie-bundled wires at their mounting points when components need to be accessed for service or when wires or cables must be replaced.

Insul-Fab’s Interface Materials-

With increased miniaturization of electronic components and increased circuit density, today’s electronics generate more heat than ever, and this trend continues at a rapid pace. Typical examples included handheld computing equipment, user interface devices, medical and lighting devices, and power inverters. The basic solution is to transfer heat from the heat source to a frame, chassis, heat sink or other type of heat spreader for diffusion. The important material property is thermal conductivity, which enables heat and energy transfer. But ease of installation and rework are also important considerations.

The Problem-

If heat is not carried away from an electronic device, the reliability and operational lifetime of the component can be significantly reduced. Heat sinks and fans are standard mechanical solutions, but interface materials between the heat source and the heat sink can play a significant role in efficiently removing heat as well. There are several different types of materials than can be used, based upon the application. Thermal greases, glues and adhesives are one set of solutions. However, they can be messy and difficult to apply. Also, they often yield inconsistent results based upon the variability in their application.

The Solution-

Often referred to as Thermal Gap Pads, these flexible sheet products are typically made of silicone based materials with fillers. They vary in thickness and other dimensions in order to be precisely fit between the heat producing device (e.g. the heat source) and the heat dissipation device (e.g. the heat sink) Due to dimensional stability of these solid materials, they can provide a more consistent, measurable solution over their more viscous counterparts. Due to their compressibility, they offer complete surface-to-surface contact.

TE Connectivity introduces Single Wall, Flame Retardant Heat Shrink Tubing-

TE SWFR single wall heat shrink tubing is offered in two very flexible types. X2 is a thin wall tubing, and X4 is a very thin wall tubing. The thicker wall of the X2 offers better protection, while the space-saving thinner wall of the X4 permits denser packing of protected components and a faster shrink time to better protect against thermal damage of temperature-sensitive components.


Both types are halogen free, permitting their use in enclosed spaces where toxic gasses from burning materials containing halogens are undesirable. SWFR heat shrink tubing’s high degree of flame retardancy allows it to carry UL VW-1 and CSA OFT flammability ratings.



  • High flame-retardant, it is an excellent candidate for applications in appliances, motor vehicles, commercial electronics, and consumer electronics given the increased focus on consumer safety.
  • Environmentally friendly. Emits minimal amounts of toxic or acidic gasses when burned, making it appropriate for use in enclosed areas.
  • Electrically insulates and mechanically protects components and other electrical connections and termination.
  • Low shrink temperatures permits quick installation and reduces the risk of damage to temperature-sensitive components. The X2 thin wall version shrinks quickly, and the X4 very thin wall version can shrink more than twice as fast as the X2.
  • With sizes from 0.8mm to 30mm and two different wall thicknesses, this very flexible tubing is suitable for use in a range of applications.

touch screen
touch screen
Touch screens are frequently used in conjunction with LCDs as data input devices in a variety of medical, industrial and military applications. Most commonly used touch screens include:
Resistive Touch Screens – most widely used due to cost and reliability. Typically constructed using layers of conductive polyester film and glass. Requires activation pressure to make physical contact between the conductive layers to generate an XY axis point. Inherent internal reflections may reduce high ambient light performance. Sunlight readability can be improved via antireflective coatings and layers of linear and circular polarizers to minimize internal reflections. Common configurations and include 4-, 5-, and 8-wire.
Surface Acoustic Wave – SAW uses ultrasonic waves that register where the touch is located. As a portion of the wave is absorbed, it sends a signal to the controller. Because it requires very low activation pressure, a SAW touch screen can be susceptible to surface contamination or damage.
Projective Capacitive Touch Screens – PCT is becoming increasingly popular due to its very high resolution. Projective capacitive technology relies on a capacitance change that occurs when touching near or on the sensor surface. A conductive grid is patterned on the glass surface and forms an XY array. Applying voltage to the array creates a grid of capacitors. The array is connected to a controller that converts analog to digital signals and locates the exact contact point. PCT’s excellent resolution enables multi-touch applications.
Infrared Touch Screens – operate using an array of infrared light emitting diodes (LEDs) and photo sensors to locate X and Y coordinates. The touch location is identified by the interruption of the IR beam. IR touch screens provide very good optical clarity and can accommodate very large displays. Resolution is dependent on spacing of the IR sensors; false activation can occur due to surface contamination. High ambient light that produces IR radiation may reduce the sensitivity of the IR sensors and, therefore, touch screen functionality.
Optical Imaging Touch Screens – a relatively new technology that uses optical sensors on the corners of the touch screen and infrared backlights to create a two-dimensional field. Touches are detected as shadows, and interpolation occurs to pinpoint the location of the field disruption. OI technology is scalable to large display sizes.
Enhanced Touch Screen / Display Assembly touch screen
Touch screens used in demanding environments often require:
Linear or Circular Polarizers – reduce internal reflection to less than 2% by orienting reflected light to separate it from light emitted by the LCD.
Glass Front Resistive Touch Screens – to improve surface durability to abrasion and chemicals for touch screens used in rugged environments.
Chemically strengthened glass touch screens – to provide impact protection
EMI/RFI Shielding – using conductive coatings and optical, fine wire conductive grids
IR Blocking Filters – to reduce the thermal loading on liquid crystal displays (LCDs) or optical enclosures used in direct sunlight
Transparent Heaters – for low temperature operation and antifogging of touch screens
Antireflective coatings – applied to front and/or rear surface of touch screen to improve viewing in high ambient light
Optical bonding of the touch screen to LCD to improve sunlight readability and impact durability

EMI Shielding Compatibility

Electromagnetic Compatibility EMI/RFI Shielding Products are designed to either keep out or keep in electromagnetic interference. Shielding reflects and absorbs incident radiation. The higher the attenuation of the shielding, the more effective it is at keeping in or out the undesired electromagnetic interference. Electrochemical Compatibility To avoid galvanic action between contacting metals refer to this chart. Materials in adjacent groups may be safely used together. Choosing materials from within a single group in the table will provide the least corrosion due to galvanic action when the materials are in contact for an extended period of time with appropriate protective finish.

EMI Shielding Attenuation

For maximum attenuation of a gasketed gap, the contact resistance of the mounting joint and closing joint must be very low and remain so throughout the life of the product. While a gasket may have the potential for very high attenuation under ideal conditions, over time oxidation, corrosion and dirt at the mounting and closing joints may reduce effectiveness. Factors influencing contact resistance over the life of the product are pressure (closing force), plating, and wiping action. Our engineers can help you determine the optimal specifications to ensure sustained attenuation.


The purpose of shielding is to occupy and thereby shield the gap that exists between two adjoining surfaces. In order to be effective, shielding gaskets must be able to occupy both the maximum and minimum gaps, which exist due to fabrication tolerances, misalignment of surfaces, or irregular surfaces. Proper compression management is essential to ensure effective EMI shielding. Tech-Etch will be pleased to assist you in specifying the most effective gasket for your requirements. Compression data provided is for reference only.

EMI Shielding gap

  • At the maximum gap the gasket should be compressed approximately 25%.
  • Gaskets may be compressed to 50% of their height or more.
