Advancements In Card Lok Technology to Satisfy SWaP and Second Level Maintenance RequirementsWhitepaper
February 19, 2020
nVent SCHROFF's NEW High Thermal Sawtooth (HTS) Card Lok is evolving the traditional card lok to better satisfy industry requirements for defense and aerospace.
Military equipment—such as shipboard, surveillance, mobile artillery and control stations, combat aircraft and unmanned air vehicles—often consists of highly technological and sensitive electronics. It is likely that these electronics could be exposed to harsh environments, including extreme heat, dust, moisture, shock and vibration. Within these harsh environments, Card or Wedge Locks are used for printed circuit board retention and thermal management to ensure continued reliability and performance. nVent SCHROFF has worked with leading engineers in the industry to develop innovative board retention and cooling products to satisfy requirements for SWaP and Second Level Maintenance.
