Harwin is expanding its popular high density 1.27mm pitch Archer M50 connector portfolio with the addition of four new product series, including IDC cable connectors, plus associated cable assemblies. Two ejector headers in both through-hole solder tail and surface mount options are available; surface mount devices are Tape and Reel packaged for fast, reliable, automated placement. Additional IDC DIP transition-style connectors and IDC socket connectors complete the enhanced connector line up. Designed to provide fast, reliable and cost effective connection using fine pitch 0.635mm ribbon cable without the use of special dedicated tooling, IDC connectors are good for medium to high volume cable-to-board connection. Complementing the range extensions, Harwin is also offering a number of different 150 & 300mm long off-the-shelf cable assemblies. All connectors are available in 2x5, 2x10, 2x13, 2x17, 2x20 and 2x25 positions. Archer connectors employ a twin beam contact system with gold-plated copper alloy contacts and are mechanically very strong.
