New Ultra Low Profile Coin Cell Holders Introduced

MPD has invented CR2016 low profile coin cell battery holder. While other CR2016 holder solutions often rise more than 8.5 mm above the PCB, the BLP2016SM-GTR rises 3.1 mm with an installed CR2016. This directly saves more than 5 mm in board height when compared to typical CR2016 battery holders available on the market.

Built with reliability as the first ideal, gold-flashed, nickel-plated phosphor bronze contacts that resist corrosion. The contacts offer low electrical resistance and resistance to intermittent connections, while the recurved positive contact provide extra retention on the coin cell battery. The lightweight LCP base piece of the holder is extremely strong, and can easily withstand temperatures like 260°C for modern, lead-free reflow soldering. LCP replicates metal by offering a tensile strength and modulus close to aluminum.

Additionally, the LCP has excellent chemical resistance and can withstand repeated sterilizations by standard methods used in medical device assembly, including gamma and electron beam, ethylene oxide, and hot steam or hot air processes.
