1.27mm, 2mm and 2.54mm pitch connector range extended
Hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer, Harwin, has extended the number of models available in its Industry Standard Connector ranges, including Harwin’s Archer M50 (1.27mm pitch), M22 (2mm pitch) and M20 (2.54mm pitch) interconnects. The extended range offers different connector pin counts and soldering methods to suit a variety of PCB layouts and provides customers with more flexibility. All the new surface mount connectors are available in tape and reel packaging, for use with automated pick and place assembly.
The connectors, based on 1.27mm pitch, include a complete range of single-row pin headers and sockets, both available in through-board and surface mount options. The M22, 2mm range now has single and double row SMT horizontal sockets, plus a double row vertical SMT pin header with location legs for precise board placement. Harwin’s extended M20, 2.54mm pitch range has seen the addition of single and double row SMT horizontal sockets, a double row vertical SMT pin header with location pegs, plus a low-profile dual-entry vertical SMT socket.
Applications include industrial drives, transformers and control systems, test and measurement equipment, navigation systems and marine displays and Internet of Things’ applications such as smart meters, sensors and tracking. LED light strips also benefit from the increased design and production flexibility of these interconnects.
All these connectors conform to current conventions for pin header and socket systems.
