Harwin adds female contact to Datamate Mix-Tek options
Different elements of Harwin’s 4mm pitch Datamate Mix-Tek connectors can be sourced separately and the latest element to be introduced is a female contact option. The M80-310, like all Mix-Tek coax contacts, is designed for data carrying, with support for frequencies reaching up to 6GHz. It can be fitted with a 1.19mm / 0.047-inch diameter semi-rigid coaxial cable. The 90 degree orientation means that it is suitable for use where there is limited room available above a cable-to-board connection.
Target applications are integration in robots, industrial equipment, military / aerospace hardware and satellites / CubeSats.
The M80-310 contacts are suitable for use with the complete range of different Mix-Tek high-reliability (Hi-Rel) housing types – from two to 12 position versions. Housings come with a variety of jackscrew styles to ensure mated connections capable of resisting up to 10G vibration and 100G shock. They are also fully compatible with all existing male coax contacts in the Mix-Tek portfolio, giving a 50 Ohm impedance connection. Constructed with gold plated contacts and outer shell, these contacts can withstand a minimum of 500 mating cycles, says Harwin.
The contacts are stocked and available through Harwin’s global distribution network.
Harwin specialises in high-reliability interconnect products for challenging applications; its connectors are used in modern avionics, defence, space, motorsport, oil and gas, medical and industrial systems.
