Female power contacts for 2mm pitch connectors can support elevated currents

10-01-2018 | Harwin | Connectors, Switches & EMECH

Harwin has introduced a new female contact for its Datamate connectors that enables significant increases in power delivery levels to be realized. Employing a unique, proprietary six-finger design, machined from a single piece of beryllium copper, the T-Contact increases the current capacity on compact 2mm pitch interconnection systems, offering up to 8.5A per contact being supported. As a result, it further improves the size, weight and power parameters of the company’s popular offering, and addresses the increasing need for engineers to increase the power in modern space-constrained designs.

Among the company's main target applications are defence, avionics (control systems, radar, UAVs, etc.), motorsport (navigation systems, sensors, telemetry equipment), industrial automation (drives/controls, robotics, motion control systems) and satellites.
