New 10A hi-rel power connector from Harwin handles up to 175degC

Extremely durable, designed for harsh environments

Harwin, the leading hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer, has launched a family of high density power connectors that can handle currents up to 10A. Based on a 3mm pitch, the new M300 connectors are designed for rugged environments and withstand twice the number of operations as older generation products.

Comments Scott Flower, Hi-Rel Product Manager, Harwin: “An increasing number of customers in applications such as defence and commercial aircraft, industrial, oil and gas exploration, satellites and UAVs are demanding a durable power connector system that delivers high performance and extreme temperature tolerance in the 5 – 10 amp range.”

M300 connectors feature a 4-fingered Beryllium Copper female contact which delivers superb electrical and mechanical performance. Devices suit 18 to 22AWG applications and are designed for use in temperatures of between -65 and +175degC and are rated for 1000 operations. They pass shock (EIA-364-27: 100g 6ms No Discontinuity >1µs and vibration (EIA-364-28 10g No Discontinuity >1µs) testing. Jackscrews are available for extra security.

Other features include keyway polarisation and identification of the #1 position, and the connector bodies are moulded in environmentally-friendly material.

To aid design activities, Harwin provides CAD models and test reports, and live technical support is always available.
