Harting is expanding its space-saving har-link metric connector range with a version equipped with solder bucket contacts.
Up to now, these connectors were supplied with an insulation displacement termination on the cable side only. The addition of solder bucket contacts now makes it easy to assemble harnesses for prototyping and test purposes without the use of special tooling.
With this new contact style, wires of sizes from AWG 30 to AWG 24 can be mounted on the cable side of the har-link connection, providing high flexibility and compatibility with a large range of cables available on the market. har-link is manufactured in accordance with IEC 61076-4-107 and is a compact, robust cable connector with 2.0mm spacing which guarantees excellent data transmission to the PCB in high-frequency networks and telecommunication applications. It can transmit data at speeds of up to 2Gbit/s on each twisted conductor, and is screened to deliver reliable performance in areas subject to high electromagnetic interference.
