Harting is launching the har-flex connector series of space-saving, rugged and versatile PCB connectors for board-to-board and board-to-cable applications. This product family includes a number of straight connector models as well as compatible insulation displacement connectors and angled models.
Designed to offer PCB designers greater flexibility in the use of increasingly size-sensitive and cost-intensive PCB resources, the har-flex connector series is based on a 1.27-mm grid, with all even-numbered models available from six to 100 pins.
For mezzanine applications, the series has straight models in four different stack heights that allow parallel PCB distances between 8 and 13.8mm to be bridged. For surface-mount applications, the har-flex connectors are delivered in tape-and-reel packaging. All devices undergo 100 per cent coplanarity testing, and are designed for standard fitting with pick-and-place pads to guarantee a simple, fully automatic and reliable assembly process.
