Harwin offers a low insertion force version of its Datamate connector family, currently offering up to 96 contacts. The M83 three-row connectors incorporate specially designed female contacts that require a mating force of only 0.2 to 1N, yet delivers the same high-reliability performance as existing Datamate versions.
Datamate connectors conform with British Standard 9525-F0033 and can withstand high levels of shock, acceleration and vibration in addition to a large number of mating cycles, all without loss of performance. Datamate 3-Row Off-The-Shelf features a selection of signal connectors in male Vertical and Horizontal PC Tail, with female Vertical PC Tail and Crimp versions stocked as standard.
Targeted at applications such as industrial control systems, head-up displays, air-to-air missiles, military communications, and military and passenger aircraft, all connectors are fitted with jackscrews as standard for secure mating and board mounting, to achieve maximum reliability.
A selection of custom versions are also available, which can feature other contact counts or mixed contact technologies including signal, power, and coax, and a wider variety of jackscrew options.
