Posted by John McHaleSALEM N.H., 2 April 2011. A new horizontal female version of Harwin's high performance Datamate 2 millimeter high-reliability connector was introduced for applications such as military and avionics systems. The reverse gender right angle hi-rel connector enables boards to be connected in parallel or side by side. The dual row connectors are available in 6, 12, 14, 20, 26, and 34 positions with a 3 millimeter pc tail. For complete mating security, there is also a range of jackscrews. Longer (4.5 millimeter) and SM solder tails will be released shortly."The Datamate hi-rel interconnection system is already a very wide product family and a horizontal female style further strengthens this range," says Bill Neukomm, vice president sales and marketing at Harwin North America. "It increases the possibilities open to creative and innovative design engineers who are continually looking for ways to optimize performance and reduce system size and cost."For more information visit www.harwin.com.
