Hi-temp surface-mount test points from Aerco

Aerco stocks and supplies on quick delivery the Oxley SMOX, a unique high temperature PCB test terminal that provides accurate line tests during PCB assembly.
SMOX is designed specifically to be used with ROHS compliant lead-free solders such as 96S (re-flow at 220°C) and is supplied loose or on tape and reel for ease of assembly.  Its unique retention mechanism enhances reliability through low stress contact.
The SMOX connection system is the only surface-mount ball and socket test point available on the market and has a specially designed socket for easy low contact resistance and gentle detachment.
Requiring a minimum pad size of only 2mm and being a single pole device, SMOX can be placed accurately by hand or any pick and place machine even when space is restricted.



Enhanced Oxley BA9 LED lamps from Aerco

 Oxley BA9 LED bulbs Now available from Aerco is a new version of the popular Oxley BA9 LED bulbs that incorporates the latest surface mount technology to improve performance and expand capability.

Designed as a fit-and-forget replacement for traditional filament panel lamps, these enhanced lamps achieve the required intensity levels while avoiding the ‘hot spot’ issues and the inconsistencies in light spread inherent in discrete flat-topped LEDs.

In addition to increased intensity, these new lamps provide enhanced colour uniformity, even illumination, sealing to IP66 and increased reliability, particularly at the higher end of the voltage range.  Also, a reduction in overall length simplifies assembly and widens the range of potential applications.  Available in white, warm white, yellow, blue, green and red, the bulbs have a cut-out diameter of 9.8mm and a voltage range of 12 to 60VAC.
