Datamate cable assembly from Harwin includes 61 new variants
Off the shelf cable in the Datamate high reliability connector assemblies from Harwin are available directly from stock and with no lead times. Harwin has added 61 new variants to its cable assembly range, which include variations for its 2.00mm pitch Datamate high-reliability (hi-rel) connector assemblies.
The cable assemblies are immediately available ex stock via Harwin’s supply chain partners. The additional cable assemblies cover male and female connections, with a range of contact count and cable length options available. Both single-ended and double-ended configurations are available in lengths of 150mm, 300mm and 450mm. Contact options include the T-Contact, which is capable of delivering up to 8.5A. For assemblies with extended rear wall housings, epoxy resin back potting is included to provide added strain relief, says Harwin. All connectors have stainless steel jackscrews incorporated for extra secure mating and vibration resistance.
All cable assemblies in the Datamate series are mechanically robust for high reliability applications. They support 500 mating cycle lifespans and resilience to both shock (100G within a 6ms period) and vibrational forces (10G for two hours on each axis). They also offer a broad working temperature range of -55 to +125 degrees C.
“Heavy investment in tooling and training can be difficult to justify for small volume production runs or prototyping activities, and there can be deadline pressures too,” said Ryan Smart, new product manager at Harwin. “By offering a broad array of different cable assemblies as part of our Datamate product line . . . customers . . . can choose the option that best fits their needs, and source it from stock without any lead times to worry about,” he said.
Harwin specialises in high reliability interconnect solutions. Its connectors are used in modern avionics, defence, space, motorsport, oil & gas, medical and industrial systems. For almost 70 years, the company says it has been setting new benchmarks in terms of innovation, through investment in the latest equipment and comprehensive staff training.
Its engineering team has developed an array of hi-rel products, which include Gecko, Datamate, Mix-Tek and M300 product lines. Recent additions include the Archer Kontrol industrial connectors and the 60A-rated high current Kona. There are also EMI/RFI shielding solutions, PCB hardware and a selection of industry standard connectors.
Harwin has sales offices and manufacturing facilities in the UK, the USA, Germany, France and Singapore.
