Harting has expanded its family of DIN 41612 connectors by adding devices in the M inverse style. This type is especially suited to implementing combined connections between circuit boards in which signal, coaxial, high-current (up to 40A) or optical fibre transmissions need to be combined in one connector for greater flexibility.
The new connector style is available in configurations with pole numbers of 78+2, 60+4, 42+6, 24+8 and 6+10, where the first number indicates the number of signal contacts and the second the number of special contacts. The 6+10 connector style in particular is completely new and enables up to ten special contacts to be integrated in one connector.
Users can combine connectors in a range of different configurations including both cable and circuit-board connections. The new devices allow the implementation of mezzanine and extender-card connections.
