BivarOpto, the Optoelectronics Division of Bivar Inc., announced the immediate availability of its new family of self-retaining LED mounts that provides a Pb-free material per Directive 2002/95/EC for Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS).

Molded from a new U.L. rated 94V-O Nylon, the SRM series also provides an effective solution for assembly problems where stress on LED leads is typically a problem during LED installation onto PCBs. Leads are guided through dividers within the mount to prevent possible shorting.

"This new SRM series marks the first use of new compounds that will meet the growing focus on providing RoHS compliant electronic products globally," said Anthony Vilgiate, VP for Strategic Business Development.

"Through our recently established manufacturing of these and other Bivar products in our BivarAsia facilities in China, we have aligned our efforts to integrate the WEEE initiatives (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) with our recycling program globally," Vilgiate added.

Members of the SRM series accept T-1, T-1 > and rectangular LED devices, and are available in 18 elevations from 0.100-inches to 0.520-inches, providing a fixture capable of precision controlled device elevation and perpendicular installation for optimum LED illumination where intended. Integrally molded standoffs enable removal of process residues that may accumulate during assembly and facilitate solder joint inspection by raising the mounted LED away from the solder joint, added the company.

Prices of the SRM series start at 2 cents each in production quantities. These devices are immediately available from stock.
