Abstract

Resistor mounting brackets 10 provide an advantageous way of mounting a resistor 11 onto a printed circuit card or board 12. Each metal bracket 10 includes fingers 13 that will compress when pushed into the opening in the end of the resistor 11, thus holding the resistor 11 on the bracket 10. A slot 14 is formed in each bracket 10 for mating with the electrical leads 15 of the resistor 11. These leads 15 can be soldered to the brackets 10 prior to attachment of the resistor/bracket assembly to the printed circuit board 12. Tabs 16 formed at the lower ends of the brackets 10 are adapted to be inserted into holes 17 in the printed circuit board 12. This bracket assembly may then be wave-soldered to the printed circuit board.

Resistor Mounting Bracket

Resistor mounting brackets 10 provide an advantageous way of mounting a resistor 11 onto a printed circuit card or board 12. Each metal bracket 10 includes fingers 13 that will compress when pushed into the opening in the end of the resistor 11, thus holding the resistor 11 on the bracket 10. A slot 14 is formed in each bracket 10 for mating with the electrical leads 15 of the resistor
11. These leads 15 can be soldered to the brackets 10 prior to attachment of the resistor/bracket assembly to the printed circuit board 12. Tabs 16 formed at the lower ends of the brackets 10 are adapted to be inserted into holes 17 in the printed circuit board 12. This bracket assembly may then be wave-soldered to the printed circuit board. The use of these brackets 10 simplifies the mounting of the resistor 11 and also enables the placement of other circuit components 18 on the circuit board in the area under the resistor 11.
