Harwin Archer Kontrol board-to-board connectors

Friday, 03 April, 2020 | Supplied by: Clarke & Severn Electronics


Harwin has confirmed that its Archer Kontrol 1.27 mm pitch board-to-board connectors support data rates of up to 3 Gbps. Compatible with Ethernet speeds up to 2.94 Gbps, the connectors are optimised for modern industrial infrastructure.

Targeting the industrial drives and controls market, the series is effective in monitoring and data acquisition equipment. Mated connectors withstand 20G of vibration, coping with the demanding conditions of automation and mechanised processes. The fully shrouded and polarised design handles strong lateral and twisting forces, and surface mount hold-downs lighten the strain on the soldered connections.

Blind mating is easy to do, due to the chamfered front edges that allow up to 0.7 mm offset. The gold-plated phosphor bronze contact areas enable the connectors to handle up to 500 mating cycles. With operating temperatures reaching 125°C, they are suitable for small to large industrial equipment connections.

The series covers pin counts of 12 to 80 contacts, and variable vertical connector heights allow board-to-board spacings of 8 to 20 mm. With both vertical and horizontal connectors in male and female designs, all mating configurations are possible — edge-to-edge co-planar, parallel board-to-board and right-angle mother-to-daughterboard. Easy blind mating along with right-angle connection means these components are well suited to backplane connections. Up to 1.2 A current per contact is supported.

The combination of a 3 Gbps data rate with mechanical robustness should ensure the long-term integrity of high-speed industrial data. The product is designed to help maintain system responsiveness and minimise downtime to keep production lines running.
