Harwin Plc Key Developments

Harwin Expands Range of EZ-Spring Contacts with Different Contact Styles and Heights

Harwin Plc has expanded its range of EZ-Spring Contacts with different contact styles and heights. Part of the EZ-BoardWare range of PCB hardware products, the surface mount Spring Contacts - also known as Spring Fingers or Grounding Contacts -- are now available in 15 different sizes, ranging from 1.7mm to 7.25mm free height (1.20mm to 6.35mm minimum working height), and are suitable for both vertical and horizontal contact actions. Designed for easy assembly onto PCBs, EZ-Spring Contacts are used as grounding or shielding contacts in contact with metal frames or shields, or even for general electrical connection between PCBs or similar. Mounted in a row, the contacts can provide an excellent RFI shielding connection for metal doors or other cabinet enclosures. The contact design ensures positive contact with the mating surface, and is tolerant to both wiping and sliding action. Individual clips are supplied in tape and reel packaging for automated placement, and reduce manufacturing costs by eliminating time-consuming secondary assembly operations.

Harwin Adds New Datamate Options for Extra Design Flexibility

Harwin has increased the flexibility of its 2mm pitch Datamate hi-rel connector family with new versions. The company now offers its single-in-line, surface mount version in vertical configuration, while the recently-announced extra-small bore product is now available with jack screws for extra mating security. The vertical SIL Datamate connectors will suit any application where PCB space is at a premium. Devices come with three mating options - friction latch, locking latch or without latches. Harwin launched its 28-32 AWG extra small bore contact last year targeting avionics, aerospace, industrial, and robotic applications. The addition of jack screws will ensure contact is maintained even in environments with are subject to severe shock and vibration.

Harwin Plc Expands EZ-BoardWare Range of PCB Hardware Products with Nine New EZ-Spring Contacts

Harwin Plc has expanded its EZ-BoardWare range of PCB hardware products with nine new EZ-Spring Contacts. Also known as Spring Fingers or Grounding Contacts, these devices are designed for easy assembly onto PCBs, and are used as grounding or shielding contacts, in contact with metal frames or shields. Suitable for both wiping and sliding action, the individual clips are supplied in tape and reel packaging for automated placement, and reduce manufacturing costs by eliminating time-consuming secondary assembly operations. A significant addition to the company's existing range of spring contacts, the new devices are available in a variety of different styles. Uncompressed heights of between 1.7mm and 7.0mm provide excellent design flexibility, and good spring properties enable excellent electrical connection/grounding to be made between a PCB and various other electronic components - other PCBs, speakers, fans, aerials, shields etc -- even if the equipment is subject to vibration. A variety of plating finishes, including gold and tin are offered. These EZ- Spring Contacts take up minimal space on a PCB and are mechanically strong, capable of providing a good electrical connection that can be easily mated and separated many times. More, they provide a low cost solution being auto-placeable by industry-standard equipment. EZ- Spring Contacts are suitable for use in virtually all industry sectors across a wide range of applications including aerospace and defence equipment, white goods, medical and industrial products.
