SALEM, N.P.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer, Harwin, has extended the number of models available in its highly successful Industry Standard Connector ranges, including Harwin’s Archer M50 (1.27mm pitch), M22 (2mm pitch) and M20 (2.54mm pitch) interconnects. The range extensions bring greatly increased choice to design engineers, with the extended product offerings adding new orientations, different connector pin counts and soldering methods. Harwin expanded its choice of connection systems to suit an increased variety of PCB layouts and offer customers more flexibility. Additionally, all of the new surface mount connectors are available supplied in Tape & Reel packaging, for use with automated pick and place assembly.
Harwin’s Archer M50 connectors, based on 1.27mm pitch, now include a complete range of single-row pin headers and sockets, both available in through-board and surface mount options. The M22, 2mm pitch Industry Standard range has been extended with the addition of single and double row SMT horizontal sockets, plus a double row vertical SMT pin header with location legs for precise board placement. Harwin’s extended M20, 2.54mm pitch Industry Standard Connector range has seen the addition of single and double row SMT horizontal sockets, a double row vertical SMT pin header with location pegs, plus a low-profile dual-entry vertical SMT socket.
There are applications across many markets for the new model variants, including: industrial drives, transformers and control systems; test & measurement equipment; navigation systems and marine displays; IoT applications such as smart meters, sensors and tracking. LED light strips also benefit from the increased design and production flexibility of these new Harwin interconnects.
