Keystone Electronics (Astoria, NY) has introduced a series of self-retaining, T-1 LED mounting spacers designed to assure uniform and perpendicular LED positioning. The spacers feature internal retention “teeth” that secure spacers onto LED leads, prior to assembly on PCBs. The design also eliminates the possibility of LED lead shorting by separating and retaining component leads while inserting into a PCB. The spacers feature 0.020" legs incorporated into the molded Nylon 6/6 structure to serve the dual purpose of heat dissipation and easy post-solder cleaning. Overall height of the spacers ranges from 0.120" to 0.925".
