Two Piece Surface Mount Shields

Two-Piece SMS Surface Mount PCB Shield

Leader Tech SMS – Surface Mount Shields offer a highly reliable, cost effective, off-the-shelf solution for most surface mount shielding applications. Our SMS shields are supplied in tape & reel packaging and are suited for any volume application including automated pick and place assembly operations.

Leader Tech has more sizes and heights of standard off-the-shelf shields than any other supplier.

Our two piece SMS style PCB Shield can be specified for applications that require inspection, tuning or repair of shielded elements. If tuning or inspection is not required try our cost saving one piece SMS shields.

If you would like a detailed drawing of any of the SMS series just click on the part number and a full drawing will appear with the recommended solder trace dimensions.

Custom One Piece Shields

Decades of engineering and manufacturing experience provide you with the ultimate board level shielding flexibility. From 3D modeling, material selection and prototype to high volume production, we are with you every step of the way. Our one piece shields can be designed to mate properly with our tech clips.

Slot-Lok Standard

Quick-Turn, Near Custom Shielding Solutions

Slot-LokTM shields from Leader Tech represent a proprietary manufacturing process that increases shield design flexibility while reducing lead time and total product cost. Slot-LokTM Circuit Board Shields achieve this by applying standardized manufacturing methods to produce what would traditionally be a custom manufactured product. The proprietary Slot-LokTM manufacturing process has helped many companies reduce their design-to-delivery time by a factor of four without incurring tooling charges.

An added feature of the Slot-LokTM design is an audible click that confirms secure retention of the cover.

A Low-Cost, Multi-Cavity Alternative

The proprietary and extremely cost-effective Slot-Lok™ design and
manufacturing process can accommodate virtually any multi-cavity shielding application requirement. This circuit board shield uses a flexible manufacturing technology that increases design options while reducing lead time and total product cost.

CBS2

CBS2

Engineered 6-sided Shield Enclosure

The versatile 6-sided CBS2 Shielding Box can be mounted on any side or orientation. We recommend the use of GRIP-SERT style threaded inserts.

These inserts are completely threaded, enabling them to be utilized both as a method of exterior box attachment and for PCB attachment inside of the shielding box. This allows the use of CBS2 shielding boxes in a wide variety of unique mounting applications.

These highly versatile inserts deliver high torque-out resistance and high pullout values in our standard .015’’ pre-tin plated steel or pre-tin plated Phos Bronze (P).

Design

The Leader Tech CBS2 consists of the following:

(1) fence using proven cover retention fingers on both sides

(2) covers with height and features to be specified
