Readymade cable assemblies add convenience to Datamate connectors
Readymade cable assemblies have been introduced by Harwin to accompany its Datamate series of high reliability connector components.
Available in a single- or double-ended format, they have a set cable length of 150mm (6.0 inches). Harwin says that these time-saving assemblies will give companies the quick and trouble-free access they need to the cabling without having to rely on their own in-house resources or make major investments into an expensive custom-built arrangement.
The assemblies are available direct from stock, ready to order from Mouser eliminating long lead times. They cover both signal (Datamate J-Tek/L-Tek) and power (Datamate Mix-Tek) configurations. They are cost effective and particularly well suited to one-off prototyping work or small-batch projects.
Each assembly is produced in accordance with IPC-A-620 standard concerning wire harnesses and cabling. They undergo electrical testing and go through a comprehensive inspection process both during and after production. The cables used are PTFE-insulated. The signal cables have a 24AWG gauge equipment wire, while the power cables are provided with either 10AWG or 12AWG gauge wire, with 40 or 20A current supported.
The Datamate connector components are resilient to shock (100G for 6ms), vibration (10G for six hours, two hours/axis) and extreme temperatures (-55 to +125 degrees C). They can cope with up to 500 mating cycles, confirms Harwin.
The readymade assemblies are rugged enough for deployment in the harsh environments including space, avionics, industrial drives/controls, robotics and motorsport, says Harwin.
Harwin produces high reliability interconnect products for the defence, aerospace, space, industrial, oil/gas and motorsport sectors. Established for 65 years, the company has invested in advanced equipment and staff training.
Harwin’s team of highly skilled engineers has developed the Gecko (1.25mm pitch), Datamate (2.0mm pitch), Mix-Tek (combined signal, power and coax) and high temperature M300 (3.0mm pitch) product lines. Harwin also offers EMI/RFI shielding, a portfolio PCB hardware (spacers, links, bridges, terminals, test points) and a range of industry standard connectors.
Harwin has sales offices and manufacturing facilities in the UK, the USA, Germany, France and Singapore.
