SALEM N.H., 28 April 2011. Officials at Harwin in Salem, N.H., announced that versions of their Datamate Mix-Tek mixed power and signal 2 millimeter connector family will be available as standard off-the-shelf products for avionics and military electronics systems.
Harwin's Datamate Mix-Tek connector range can be user-specified in a large number of configurations of signal, power, and coax, enabling users to design their own Datamate connector, specific to their application, by mixing and matching the required contacts up to a maximum of 50 low frequency contacts or 12 special (coax and power) contacts.
Power contacts are rated for use at as much as 20 amps, signal contacts are rated at as high as 3 amps and coax contacts are rated at 50 ohms. They are available in male pc tail, female crimp, male crimp and female pc tail options. Mouldings are polarized and have a UL94V-0 rating. Mix-Tek connectors comply with the following standards -- BS9525-F0033 and CECC 75101-008.
"Design Engineers love the flexibility of Datamate Mix-Tek, but sometimes require very fast turn–around, especially for new product development. With this new program they can immediately benefit from the size, weight, performance, and cost advantages offered by this high-rel interconnect system," says Bill Neukomm, vice president of sales and marketing at Harwin North America
Currently 41 variants of Mix-Tek Datamate are available as standard items. Configurations include power only from two to 10 power contacts and mixed contact from 2 signal/2 power through to 12 signal/4 power. The standard range focuses on the most popular male PCB contact styles mated with female crimp options. Hexagonal slotted jackscrews are offered across the range.
