Proven high-reliability and high performance, three-row Datamate connectors, from Harwin, are now available as commercial off the shelf (COTS) products.
Stocked in five different configurations of PCB and cable variants and in six standard ‘most popular’ sizes from 18 to 96 ways, the 2mm pitch, 3A per contact connectors are ideal for use in board-to-board or cable-to-board applications where a high number of contacts is required in a small space. The three-row design provides a smaller PCB footprint saving real estate on the PCB. The compact cable version saves space within the equipment.
Product manager, Graham Cunningham, said: “Eliminating the lead time problems often associated with special ‘made to order’ products and enabling a cost saving over special design products. These new standard 3-row Datamate connectors are well suited for use in many markets, including industrial, medical and in particular the aerospace and military market where COTS products are preferred to bespoke designs for cost and lead time reasons.”
A high-density connector system, three-row Datamate connectors feature up to 96 high performance signal contacts in standard sizes of 18, 27, 36, 54, 60 and 96 signal contacts arranged in 3 rows. Designed for mating with 22 AWG and 24 – 28 AWG wire sizes, the devices are available with vertical or horizontal PCB tails.More news from Harwin
