SALEM, N.H.

Harwin, the leading hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer, today launched a range of standard layout, multiport coaxial Datamate connectors with 6GHz, 50Ω contacts, suitable for hi-rel applications. Suitable for RG178 cables, the ganged connectors are available from stock with two, four, six or eight contacts.

Based on Harwin’s proven high-reliability Datamate connector family, the new coax connectors are designed with a single body moulding to resist extremes of shock, vibration and temperature in challenging application environments such as defence, aerospace, satellites, UAVs, undersea and more. Devices are equipped with hexagonal slotted jackscrews for secure fixing to the PCB, and mouldings are polarised to facilitate quick, error-free mating. Vertical and horizontal orientation styles are available and devices Harwin offers a choice of products to suit two PCB thicknesses, 3.5 and 5mm.

Comments Harwin Hi-Rel Product Manager, Scott Flower: “These new ganged coax connectors are durable enough to withstand 500 mating cycles and feature a 1.3mm contact wiping distance to ensure secure mating even under the harshest of operating conditions. Like all other members of our Datamate connector family, devices are designed to be deployed in applications where failure is not an option.”
