'[EE]:Electrode clips'

Any ideas where in NZ I could find electrode clips like
these

http://home.clear.net.nz/pages/joecolquitt/spring_clip.html

I need to get trace wires with low-profile connectors into a
machine. Crocodile clips, EZ-hooks or banana plugs a
little too bulky

Tried medical suppliers, hostipal technicians and usual
catalogues. They can be bought attached to a $60 EKG
lead. I think not

Thought I may be able to use a small magnet heat-shrunk
onto the end of a wire, but would prefer the clips. Packet
of 10 for $5 would be great ;-)

I don't really know Jinx, but if you find some, please let me know! I
like the idea. Have you thought about using a snapper, like on some
static wristbands? Or what about good old miniature pin jacks? I can get
them here for cheap, and they are fairly small. Perhaps a bit more
information? Do you need a low profile connector on the leads or on the
board?

You've probably got more chance where you are. Only ones I can
find here are on imported leads. Broken leads are repaired when
possible because of the expense, and it has to be in a pretty sorry
state before it goes in the bin, but then it's often because the clip
has broken ;-)

Being generally for medical electrodes they prefer not to take
chances - any doubtful ones are not used on real patients, but
they are used nonetheless

> Have you thought about using a snapper, like on some static
> wristbands?

Yes, but they aren't always the best connection. Ever had a
wonky 9V battery clip ? Not sure if they'll work on this board
without mods

> Or what about good old miniature pin jacks?

Open to suggestions. Thought the spring clips would be around
somewhere, possibly an off-the-shelf industrial version. But ain't
it always the way ?

> Do you need a low profile connector on the leads or on the board?

The gap between the PCB and the mechanism is very narrow. The
board has fattish stumpy test point pins, but I think these may have
been of more use for bench testing rather than in situ

Not that style but HP now Infineon) have some of the smallest and beautiful
test clips around. Expect to pay HP dollars though.

I would at least try Chris at Elekon (Auckland 833 9600) as he sometimes has
interesting stuff.

Yes, the doubtful ones are used on the fake patients ;-)

Nothing apparent at the web site. I'll give him a ring Monday

Have they moved ? New phone number (401 2225)

Possibly - seen the price of EZ-hooks lately ?

Couple of thoughts: the little 'hair pin' clips used to secure washers or
bearings on a shaft; metal snap buttons (as used on shirts or coats).  I
think the best thought might be the hair pin clips - think of a small
version of the clip that attaches the ground wire to a scope probe.

Two possibles

If you're good at making delicate things you can make a very small wire
clip using the insulation from solid wire (0.6mm ext.dia.), a 0.2mm steel
wire, a spiral spring, and two solderable washers.

Form the steel wire like the shape of tweezers (V) and feed into insulator
tube. Bend exiting 2 wires into more than half circles each so they close
towards each other when you pull the other end of the wire and can't go
back into the insulator all the way. On the other end of the insulator,
slip one washer onto the doubled steel wire so it rests on the insulator,
then the spring, then the last washer.  Push the last washer against the
spring until adequate gripping force is acheieved and solder it in place.
It works like a 'Pomona' clip. The smallest I've made (a long time ago)
was 50mm long and fitted contacts inside wristwatches ;-).

hope it helps,

Peter
