Hirose has extended its SignalBee wire-to-board connector product porfolio with an ultra-reliable 1mm pitch version. Offered in two thru eight positions, the KW30 Series miniature single-row connector provides enhanced reliability through a two-point contact design together with crimp contact deflection prevention. Also, a rib design offers a secure fit when mating the plug and receptacle creating high vibration resistance. A centre lock stops incomplete mating, mis-insertion, and lock damage.

Providing design flexibility, the series is offered in multiple variations including straight or right-angle interface types; 28, 30 or 32 AWG; and gold plating.

It is an excellent choice for a broad range of applications including home appliances/white goods, medical devices, FA controllers, office equipment, industrial robots, servo motors and more.

“Hirose continues to expand the SignalBee product family to meet the need of customers,” said Mark Kojak, chief marketing officer and senior vice president of sales and operations for Hirose Electric USA. “The KW30 Series wire-to-board version delivers rugged and reliable performance in a miniature 1mm pitch.”

The series has a current rating up to 3A, a voltage rating of 100VAC/DC and an operating temperature range of -55C to +105C.
