Harwin Introduces Ultra-Compact Fine Pitch Cable-to-Board Connector Offering

Portsmouth, UK, 9 April 2018 – Continuing to extend the breadth of its interconnect solutions, Harwin has announced the latest addition to the M40 series. ( www.harwin.com/product-highlights/m40-cable-to-board/ ) With phosphor bronze contacts that are rated for currents of up to 1A, these lightweight, low profile 1mm pitch units are the smallest in the company’s portfolio of cable-to-board connectors. They have been developed specifically to attend to the needs of modern electronic designs, where densely populated PCBs are stacked closely together.

M40 connectors are available in both single and double row options, with vertical and horizontal surface mount configurations for the shrouded male headers. This means they are versatile enough to serve a wide array of different layout requirements. Pre-cabled female contacts are available off-the-shelf, with complete cable assembly layouts on request, enabling customers to avoid making heavy investment on crimp tooling (plus all the training and procedural planning that goes with it). As a result, these connectors will prove particularly attractive for prototyping or small volume runs.

Supporting 50 mate/un-mate cycles, these components have an insulation resistance of 100MΩ and cover an operational temperature range of -25°C to +85°C. Located within an attractive price bracket, they are targeted at industrial control/monitoring, communications infrastructure, industrial drives and consumer electronics. They are supplied in either tube packaging or a tape-and-reel format, thus making them very well suited to automated production processes.
