Highly Durable 1.27mm Pitch Industrial Connectors from Harwin Now Accompanied by Cable Assemblies

Harwin has expanded its Archer Kontrol board-to-board industrial connector portfolio to meet cable-to-board requirements. Based on customer feedback, the company has just introduced off-the-shelf IDC cable assembly options to accompany the existing discrete connector components. These are available now direct from stock through Harwin’s global network of distributors.

On each of these assemblies, a ribbon cable is fitted with female connectors at either end, making it easier for engineers to implement Archer Kontrol units into systems. Cable lengths of 150mm or 300mm are available off-the-shelf, with other lengths available to leadtime upon request. The IDC design offers engineers a low profile, highly flexible solution which will bend considerably to fit into tight spaces. The horizontal cable exit orientation also saves significant headroom above the connector.

Archer Kontrol cables

The new cable assemblies support all existing contact counts in this connector family (12, 16, 20, 26, 32, 40, 50, 68 and 80). To deliver greater durability, the contact areas have a gold flash finish deposited on them. A highly effective latching mechanism assures cable retention, resisting vibration and accidental disconnection. The components are optimized for modern industrial settings as they can handle data rates of up to 3Gbits/s.

Archer Kontrol connectors have seen a great deal of traction over the last two years, and are used in industrial drives, factory automation systems, IIoT, robotics, rugged handheld equipment as well as other applications. They exhibit strong resilience to the vibrations, mechanical shocks, high humidity levels and extreme temperatures often found in modern industrial settings. Furthermore, their shrouded contacts prevent potential damage from mismating and ensure continued interconnect integrity.
