PCB supports are typically required to safely work with printed circuit boards (PCBs) to prevent a short circuit and shock. PCBs are used in almost all electronic objects, from smartphones to common kitchen appliances. Their thin plates communicate signals between various circuit components so that electronic devices function correctly.
What types of PCB supports are there?
PCB supports are typically made from nylon. This is because nylon doesn't conduct electricity from the circuit or corrode over time, the material being less responsive to chemicals and solvents. PCB supports can vary in terms of hole diameter, thickness, and chassis thickness, depending on the size of the PCB in use, so they can be used to work with different types of electronic objects.
How to use PCB supports
You will be able to insert PCB supports manually without any need for specialist equipment or other materials such as screws. PCB supports can also be easily released as and when required.
