Archer Kontrol

1.27mm Pitch durable industrial connectors

1.27mm pitch durable, rugged board-to-board connectors, offering designers a robust and flexible connection choice for a wide scope of industrial and other related applications. With a fully shrouded design, these connectors are suited for blind-mating applications. They can withstand lateral and twisting forces, and tolerate a significant amount of mis-alignment.

About Archer Kontrol

  • Current rating of 1.2A per contact.
  • Vertical and Horizontal options in both male and female connectors – board-to-board connection for parallel/mezzanine, motherboard to daughterboard, or coplanar/edge-to-edge PCB layouts.
  • Variable stacking height options from 8mm to 20mm board-to-board with multiple connector sizes in both genders.
  • Enhanced durability of 500 mating cycles minimum. Additional strain relief with retaining SMT tabs.
  • Fully shrouded and polarized – helps with blind mating or angled connection, handles lateral and twisting forces that can be suffered during vibration and manual operation.
  • Increased operating temperature range: -55°C to +125°C.
  • Up to 3 Gbit/s data rate.


The Archer Kontrol range is ideally suited for a number of industrial applications:

  • Industrial equipment – Factory equipment, production line controls, drive units for large-scale installations, other drives and controls systems
  • Handheld equipment – IOT markets, portable monitoring equipment, data collection
  • Large scale monitoring and control – mobile maintenance and display control systems, trackside and roadside monitoring

Products are fully RoHS and REACH SVHC compliant, and are all supplied on tape and reel for automated assembly.
