New off-the-shelf solutions having stainless steel jackscrews incorporated for extra secure mating and vibration resistance
Harwin has strengthened its connector cable assembly offering, with additional variations for its 2.00mm pitch Datamate high-reliability (Hi-Rel) connector assemblies enabling greater customer convenience.
Immediately available from stock via Harwin’s supply chain partners, there are 61 new variants added to its cable assembly portfolio. The additional cable assemblies cover male and female connections, with numerous contact count and cable length options available. These come in both single-ended and double-ended configurations and 150mm, 300mm and 450mm cable lengths can be supplied. Contact options also include high-performance T-Contact, which is capable of up to 8.5A. For assemblies with extended rear wall housings, epoxy resin backpotting is included to provide added strain relief. All connectors have stainless steel jackscrews incorporated for extra secure mating and vibration resistance.
In line with all products in the Datamate series, these cable assemblies have the mechanical robustness required for Hi-Rel deployment. As well as supporting 500 mating cycle lifespans, they exhibit superior resilience to both shock (100G within a 6ms period) and vibrational forces (10G for 2 hours on each axis). They also offer a broad working temperature range of -55°C to +125°C.
“An increasing proportion of our customers need access to cable assemblies, but taking on such work themselves can prove challenging. Heavy investment in tooling and training can be difficult to justify for small volume production runs or prototyping activities, and there can be deadline pressures too,” states Ryan Smart, New Product Manager at Harwin. “By offering a broad array of different cable assemblies as part of our Datamate product line, we can help customers avoid all these complications. They can choose the option that best fits their needs, and source it from stock without any lead times to worry about. Customers also have the assurance that these assemblies have been constructed and thoroughly tested by a highly experienced team of qualified engineers.”
