Harwin is adding a wide range of compact jumper sockets/shunts to its popular 1.27mm pitch Archer pin header range. The jumpers can be used to eliminate switches from PCBs to save money and increase reliability.
The product range includes closed top sockets with and without handles (both styles are end-stackable); the devices with handles are also side-stackable. A choice of bright colours – blue, black and red – provides for manufacturing flexibility and simplifies programming if varying models within a product family are being produced at the same time, such as motherboards with different processor options.
Paul Gillam, the Product Manager, comments: "Archer is a cost-effective system offering good electrical and mechanical performance. Current rating is 1A and devices employ a twin-beam contact design for cost-effective reliability, enabling sockets to be used for up to 300 operations."
Available ex-stock for rapid delivery, Archer jumper shunts/sockets are suited to applications including test and measurement, robotics, marine, industrial, handheld products and medical equipment.
