ELGIN, Ill. — As the packaging requirements for electronic components on PCBs continue to increase, the PCBs and associated components are decreasing in size. This trend leads to requirements for smaller connectors. To meet this need, HARTING now offers new types of solutions within the 3B and 3C DIN 41612 product range. These connectors are ideal for small PCBs as they require less space.
The new 3B and 3C DIN 41612 products complement the existing type 2B and 2C HARTING product ranges. The connectors with 20 or 30 pins are based on 0.1 inch (2.54mm) contact spacing and can carry 2 A per contact. They are tested according to the IEC 60 603-2.
Both the male and female connectors can be ordered with or without fixing flange, which decreases further the required space. The connectors are available for press-in termination, wave soldering and Surface Mount Compatible (SMC) processes. For the SMC versions, high temperature material is used which makes them ideally suited for reflow soldering. In addition to the standard versions, HARTING also offers customer specific assemblies.
