Which screws/rivets can I use for fastening of powerCON chassis connectors?

SCREWS

Screws for chassis connectors depend on panel material and thickness. We suggest the following:

Metal panel (Steel, Aluminum, Zinc)

  • Flat head thread forming screws, Pozidriv, DIN 7500 M, zinc plated, M3 x length (drilled hole ~ 3.1 mm)
  • Flat head metric machine screws, Pozidriv, DIN 965A, zinc plated, M3 x length (thread M3)

Plastic Panels
PT-flat head screws, WN 1413, zinc plated, KA30 x length (depends on material, ~ 2.4 mm)

RIVETS

It is possible to use any aluminum 1/8” or 3.2 mm 90° countersunk blind rivet.

We suggest drilling a hole diameter of 3.3 mm for the panel. It is possible to use pneumatic, electrical or hand riveting tools.
