Featuring a 1.27mm pitch, the Archer Kontrol series from Harwin delivers data rates of up to 3Gbits/s to support the industrial drives and controls market. The Archer Kontrol series is also highly effective in monitoring and data acquisition equipment. Mated connectors can withstand vibration up to 20G, making it well suited for with the demanding conditions of automation and mechanized processes. The fully shrouded and polarized design handles strong lateral and twisting forces, and surface mount hold-downs lighten the strain on the soldered connections.
Blind mating is easy thanks to the generously chamfered front edges – allowing up to 0.7mm offset. The gold-plated phosphor bronze contact areas enable these connectors to handle up to 500 mating cycles. With operating temperatures reaching 125°C, they are a safe choice for small to large industrial equipment connections.
The Archer Kontrol series covers pin counts of 12 to 80 contacts and variable vertical connector heights allow board-to-board spacings of 8mm to 20mm. 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 1.2A current per contact is supported.
The combination of 3Gbits/s data rate with mechanical robustness ensures the long-term integrity of high-speed industrial data. Archer Kontrol helps maintain system responsiveness and minimize downtime to keep production lines running.
