PCB Mounting Blocks
PCB mounting blocks are devices used to mount small panels and PCBs (printed circuit boards) to chassis within equipment modules.
How do PCB mounting blocks work?
A PCB mounting block is used for interconnecting solderless connectors to a PCB. The mounting block provides electrical as well as mechanical connections between the chassis and the board. PCB mounting blocks are usually fitted with screw holes to ensure a steady and secure fit. They’re available in several different materials such as brass, nylon, and plastic.
There are multiple types of mounting blocks, used for varying purposes. A vertical mounting block, for example, will help to attach a PCB vertically at a right angle to a chassis within the equipment. Boards are designed for various self tapping screw sizes to suit different applications.
Applications for PCB mounting blocks
PCB mounting blocks are used in a wide range of industries that use PCBs as the basic building blocks of their products, including:
- Consumer electronics
- Restaurant applications
