Harwin Expands 1.27mm Pitch Connector Family with New IDC Parts

Competitively-priced, high quality Archer range stocked in depth

SALEM, N.H. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 9, 2015 — Harwin, the leading hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer, is expanding its’ popular 1.27mm pitch Archer M50 portfolio with the addition of new IDC connectors. The Archer family is distinguished in three ways: price, parts are several percentage points more cost-effective than the competition; instant availability, devices are stocked in depth for immediate despatch at Harwin and its distribution channel; and reliability and high quality.

The new dual row Archer connectors that have been added to the existing IDC range are 12, 14 and 16 position connectors. Configurations include PCB mounted ejector headers in both through-hole and SMT format, male IDC DIP transition-style and female IDC socket connectors for use with ribbon cable. Surface mount devices are packaged on tape and reel for easy auto placement.

Key benefits of the Archer family are cost-effective, rapid termination which minimises installed cost, and secure cable retention featuring positive locking of the mated pair. Parts are mechanically strong and have a high contact density.

Comments Product Manager, Vera Wijtvliet: “Archer connectors are designed to facilitate easy, cost effective connection between PCBs where significant quantities of interconnects are required, combined with a secure, quick connection method. Applications will be found in many markets, ranging from Consumer Electronics through to the Industrial, Instrumentation and Control Systems environment. An example would be in marine navigation instrumentation, where good reliability needs to be combined with low cost and high connection density.”
