Bivar Conductive Insert™ Card Guides


The Low Cost Solution to Grounding Problems

Bivar Conductive Insert card guidesBivar's new patent-pending Conductive Insert card guides are ideal for grounding all computer peripherals, accessories, and removable media, including hard drives. Conductive inserts work with all of Bivar's standard snap-in card guides (including Deep Channel, Narrow, Antistatic and Interchangeable) by adding a fully conductive stainless steel insert down the center PCB channel. The insert fully attaches to the guide via a spring loaded retainer, assuring complete contact with PCB circuitry.

It's an excellent way to answer growing concerns about EMI (electromagnetic interference), RFI (radio frequency interference) and EMC (electromagnetic contamination) grounding applications. Bivar's Conductive Insert card guides offer a very efficient and cost-effective alternative to metal and metalized card guides. Stainless steel won't corrode, won't oxidize, has a long shelf life, and will not react with most chemicals and solvents used in the assembly process.

  • Stainless per PIL-S-5059 301 SS 1/2 Hard, Rockwell Hardness 36.0
  • Fully conductive - Less than 10 ohms resistance over 8.0" (.203mm).
  • Works with Bivar: Econ-O-Gide, Temp-O-Gide, Grip-O-Gide, Comp-O-Gide, Narr-O-Gide, and Stat-O-Gide.
