PCB Sockets

Individual Board Sockets, IC Connectors

Board-mounting sockets for individual placement or odd-form components. Using these sockets to mount other components or modules removes the risk of heat or mis-handling damage during the soldering process, and adds the flexibility of upgrading or field-replacement of worn out or damaged elements.

Turned Body Throughboard

A range of two-piece construction sockets – inner spring finger contact with outer shell. Using the same contacts as the Datamate and M300 connectors, proven high-reliability technology.

  • Design to accept nominal mating pin sizes of Ø0.50mm, Ø0.80mm, Ø1.00mm or Ø2.00mm
  • Proven 4-finger and 6-finger contact designs to maintain electrical contact through high vibration and shock
  • Beryllium Copper Contact for improved temperature range: -55°C to +125°C
  • Minimum of 500 mating cycles durability
  • Variants include knurls for mechanical PCB retention, and open-ended sockets for longer pins
  • Vertical construction, throughboard mounting

Stamped SMT Sockets

Harwin’s experience in connector design and SMT hardware products enabled the development of twin-beam and 3-beam contacts (SYCAMORE Contacts), designed to accommodate a wide pin range.

  • Ultra-low profile on the PCB – maximum 0.43mm above the board
  • Designs accommodate mating pins 0.80mm to 1.90mm, square or round
  • Supplied in Tape and Reel packaging, ideally suited for high volume automated assembly
  • SYCAMORE Contacts (3-Beam) made from Beryllium Copper for increased operating temperatures -50°C to +125°C
  • Twin-beam made from high-quality Phosphor Bronze material for -40°C to +105°C operating temperatures
  • Rated between 5 Amps and 9 Amps (design-dependent)
  • Reduced component and machine placement costs

Horizontal Test Sockets

A selection of dual entry horizontal sockets with insulating housings, that accept Ø2.03mm test probes.

  • 5 Amps, 1,500V
  • Color-coded options available in the Throughboard style
  • Surface Mount version available in Tape and Reel packaging for automated assembly
  • Double-ended entry design

IC Sockets, Modular Socket and Header Strip

A selection of legacy 2.54mm pitch turned socket and header connectors.

  • Single Row Throughboard Socket strip, accepts mating pins Ø0.40 to 0.56mm.
  • Single Row Throughboard header strip, with Ø0.69mm mating pins.
  • Dual Row IC Socket throughboard range – 6 to 64 contact, with row pitches at 7.62mm (0.3″), 10.16mm (0.4″), 15.24mm (0.6″) and 22.86mm (0.9″).
