Expanded connector range features 4.5 to 1.1mm profiles
Extending the company's popular Spring Contact Connector range, Harwin has introduced thirteen models offering design engineers more options to select the best design for each application. The new range includes extended C and Positive Stop models in nine heights, ranging from 4.5 to 1.1mm above board level, enabling smaller, lighter, low-profile PCB designs.
Harwin Spring Contact interconnects suit a wide variety of applications and markets, including antenna contacts in wearable and mobile applications, RFI screening, LED lamp connections, RF ID tags, vision systems, PCB grounding and board-to-board contact.
The connectors maintain a positive force against a mating surface and are available in different widths to offer a choice of spring contact forces. Tolerant to significant mating misalignment, the new design incorporates 'positive stop' to prevent damage caused by over compression. A contact anti hook up feature is a also included. Specifications include gold-plated contacts and current rating up to 1.0A. Reliable and durable, Harwin Spring Contacts can withstand up to 10,000 mating cycles and operate over a temperature range of -40 to +85°C. Supplied on tape and reel, the Spring Contact Connector range enables low-cost assembly with automatic pick and place machines.
Graham Cunningham, Product Manager, Harwin, commented: “The extended Spring Contact range builds on an already enormously popular product line and now brings even wider choice to design engineers. Today, the pressure is on to fit ever more functionality into less space, and our ultra-low profile 1.1mm Spring Contact in particular helps designers meet 'smaller and lighter' demands.”
