Datamate Connectors

2.00mm & 4.00mm Pitch High-Reliability Connectors

Harwin’s Datamate (M80 and M83 series) connectors provide an extremely flexible interconnect solution, ideally suited for a wide variety of testing environments and conditions. Connectors are available in single, double and triple row configurations. Vibration and shock resistant, ultimately flexible with power/coax options.

About Datamate

  • 3A per signal contact (all electrically loaded; 3.3A per individual contact) at 2mm pitch
  • Proven 4-finger contact design to maintain electrical contact through high vibration and shock
  • Beryllium Copper contact for improved temperature range: -55°C to +125°C (testing in progress to confirm higher)
  • 500 Mating cycles durability
  • Mixed Technology options – Up to 40A per power contact, 6GHz / 50Ohm coax contacts on 4mm pitch
  • World-class quality from the Original Designers of Datamate – published test reports and proven track record
  • Many popular products available from stock – 20-day leadtimes on extended ranges. Stock availability visible online.

Heart of the Connector

The compact design of a 2mm pitch connector (for signal), the global availability of a product range stocked in depth, the established high-reliability of a COTS connector system. Datamate has become the connector range of choice in many demanding applications on land, sea and air.
