Harting is launching of a range of straight D-Sub surface-mount connectors to complement its established angled product portfolio. The new connectors feature an optimised design that promises a high level of dependability and optimal processing characteristics. Their surface-mount capability simplifies PCB assembly and broadens their range of applications.
100 per cent co-planarity is achieved through the use of stamped contacts and a specially designed insulator. Harting describes this as a robust product capable of withstanding all normal handling processes.
Two variants are available: a connector for standard applications with flat solderable pads to withstand plug-in and withdrawal forces, and a variant for more demanding requirements with a solderable assembly pin in addition to the flat pads.
The black insulator, which is designed for improved camera detection, includes two positioning pegs for improved pick & place process reliability. Also included is a large removable cover for a 10mm vacuum pipette.
All connectors are available with 9 to 37 contacts and are supplied with the option of M3 and 4-40 UNC threaded inserts and fixed female screw locks. Performance levels 2 and 3 are standard, and PL1 can be delivered upon request.
In addition to 140-piece reels suitable for automatic assembly, these products can be delivered in other special packaging depending on customer requirements. For further details about the new straight D-Sub surface-mount connectors, visit the website at www.harting.co.uk.
