HARTING is now offering the connector styles M inverse from DIN 41612. These connector styles are especially suited for combined connections between circuit boards in which signal, coax, high current up to 40A or glass fiber transmissions need to be combined in one connector. This spells greater flexibility for users.
The new connector styles are available with the pole numbers 78+2, 60+4, 42+6, 24+8 and 6+10, where the first number indicates the number of signal contacts and the second the number of special contacts. The 6+10 connector style in particular is all new and enables up to 10 special contacts to be integrated in one connector. Users can combine their connectors flexibly. For all applications, diverse contacts both with cable, as well as circuit board connections are available.
Together with the M connector that has been available for many years, mezzanine connections (two parallel circuit boards) and extender card connections (two circuit boards lying side by side) can be implemented with the various combinations. The new angled female connectors are available in solder technology, and the straight male connectors (headers) in solder, press-in or wire-wrap technology.
The signal contacts are compactly premounted in a 2.54 mm grid and can carry a load of up to 2 A per contact. They are tested in conformity with the IEC 60 603-2 standard.
