Harting – Straight D-sub surface-mount connectors complement angled portfolioAug 24 2012 - Switches, Relays & Onboard [More Switches, Relays & Onboard Articles]
Harting has launched a range of straight D-sub surface-mount connectors to complement its established angled product portfolio.
The new connectors feature an optimised design that ensures a high level of dependability and optimal processing characteristics. Their surface-mount capability significantly simplifies PCB assembly and broadens their range of applications. Through the use of stamped contacts and a specially designed insulator, 100% co-planarity is achieved. This robust solution is capable of withstanding all normal handling processes.
Two variants are available: a connector for standard applications with flat solderable pads to withstand plug-in and withdrawal forces and a variant for more demanding requirements with a solderable assembly pin in addition to the flat pads.
The black insulator, which is designed for improved camera detection, includes two positioning pegs for improved pick-an-place process reliability. Also included is a large removable cover for a 10 mm vacuum pipette.
All connectors are available with 9 to 37 contacts and are supplied with the option of M3 and 4-40 UNC threaded inserts and fixed female screw locks. Performance levels 2 and 3 are standard, and PL1 can be delivered on request.
In addition to 140-piece reels suitable for automatic assembly, the products can be delivered in other special packaging depending on customer requirements, says the company.More news from Harting
