At Southern Electronics 2013, the Harting Technology Group will be featuring its broad range of electrical and electronics interconnection solutions, including a number of innovative new products. The Harting Technology Group’s electronics assembly operation – Harting Integrated Solutions (HIS) – will also be demonstrating its backplane and sub-assembly capabilities.
A major new product on show is har-flexicon®, a miniature individual conductor connection technology with 1.27 mm spacing for field-assembly. Consisting of a pluggable SMD terminal block, with IDC wire connection, it allows the rapid, toolless termination of single wires directly on to a PCB, with the benefits of low processing costs, compatibility with automatic SMT mounting and reflow soldering process, and a high level of rigidity with large-area SMT fixings.
Also new are a number of enhancements to the Harting har-flex® robust circuit-board connector family which extend its versatility in a wide range of board-to-board and board-to-cable applications with a contact pitch of 1.27 mm.
The different har-flex® variants can be freely combined and enable modular device configurations. The spatial requirement on the circuit board is minimised thanks to the variable number of contacts from six to 100. har-flex® data transmission meets the requirements of modern transmission protocols, such as Gigabit Ethernet and PCI Express.
Other electronic interconnection solutions being featured include D-Sub, 2 mm metric, DIN 41612 and IDC types as well as MicroTCA card edge connectors that are capable of handling the high-speed and ultra-high-speed data rates employed in mobile telecommunications networks.
In the field of industrial connectors, Harting is showing its industry-leading Han® heavy-duty connector family, which sets a worldwide standard for electrical connectors in sectors ranging from factory automation and machine manufacturing to transportation and wind energy. The Han® industrial connectors are supplemented by RJ industrial connectors and a wide range of Industrial Ethernet devices. Harting’s industrial networking portfolio includes interfaces between industrial automation equipment and sensors and monitoring systems, communications within machines and control systems, and links between the industrial and office computing environments.
Harting Integrated Solutions is featuring its electronics assembly capabilities, along with its expertise in project development, prototyping, test and evaluation. The company is an ISO9001 supplier, and its Northampton based manufacturing facility designs, manufactures and tests high-speed multi-layer backplanes and integrates them into card frames and enclosures. Cable assemblies from simple ribbon to advanced wiring looms are also offered.
