Mix-Tek available off the shelf
Published: 11 December 2011 - Joe Bush
Harwin has announced that certain configurations of its Datamate Mix-Tek connector family have been made available as standard off the shelf products, thus reducing lead time.
Harwin’s Datamate Mix-Tek connector range can be customer specified in a large number of configurations of signal, power and coax, effectively allowing the customer to design their own Datamate connector specific to their application, by mixing and matching the required contacts up to a maximum of 50 low frequency contacts or 12 special (coax and power) contacts.
Power contacts are rated for use at up to 20A, signal contacts are rated at up to 3A and coax contacts are rated at 50ohms. They are available in Male PC Tail, Female Crimp, Male Crimp and Female PC Tail options. Mouldings are polarised and have a UL94V-0 rating. The connectors comply with BS9525-F0033 and CECC 75101-008.
Currently 41 variants of Mix-Tek Datamate are available as standard. Configurations include power only from 2-10 power contacts and mixed contact from 2 signal/2 power through to 12 signal/4 power. The standard range focuses on the most popular male PCB contact styles mated with female crimp options.
