ACT200
The ACT200 is an ultra miniature surface mount Watch Crystal with a low power consumption making it ideal for
portable applications. Its small footprint renders it suitable for high density circuit boards or applications where
space is limited. The tape and reel packaging means that it is ideal for automatic placement machines (loose product
is also available).
The heart of the device is a heat resistant cylinder type crystal which provides for high stability characteristics
sufficient to allow reflow soldering.

ACT200 TAPE AND REEL
SOLDERING of SMD WATCH CRYSTALS
Reflow oven should be set up to emulate or better the maximum reflow profile shown in the diagram below. Note it is just as
important to conform to the times given as well as the temperatures.
Pre-heat should not exceed 180°C ±5°C Maximum time 120s
Peak soldering temperature should not exceed 260°C.
Time at peak temperature should not exceed 10 seconds.
Total reflow time above 120°C should not exceed 6 minutes.
WASH PROCESSES and SMD WATCH CRYSTALS
In order to achieve the optimum performance of plastic packaged watch crystals the plastic normally used is a polymer plastic
which is porous.
With some wash processes (Involving total immersion of the unit) the moisture ingress causes an impedance across the internal
crystal unit connections to stop it oscillating. In time (shortened by a drying process) the crystal will recover to its original
characteristics. The performance with regard to damp heat (humidity) is not effected by the use of this plastic.
Devices using an epoxy plastic are an option to overcome this problem should it cause any inconvenience. But this type of
package is increasingly becoming more difficult to obtain due to environmental problems with the use of epoxy plastics.
