UK connector maker Harwin has launched a high reliability Datamate connector with larger 17.15mm connection height to provide more room between boards.
The female connector gives the significantly larger 17.15mm connection height when used with the existing Datamate J-Tek connector range which has a 7.3mm board-to-board height when mated.
Providing more space between PCBs allows designers the flexibility to use larger board-mounted components or cabling options.
The Datamate range has temperature, vibration, and shock resilience for high reliability, and the J-Tek connectors are fitted with jackscrews for secure mounting. As a result, they provide reliable long-term operation even when located in the most demanding environments and support safety-critical applications. In addition, the board mount jackscrews give strain relief for the solder terminations, and guideposts help with mating.

The extended height Datamate connectors benefit engineers developing high-end industrial, aerospace, defence systems and heavy-duty portable equipment. They are available in double-row layouts of 10, 20, or 30 contact versions and are compatible with the existing through-board male connectors. All mating contact surfaces are finished in gold, and terminations are either gold or tin.
“Feedback from our client base has shown that there are times when a greater board separation is necessary,” says Ryan Smart, Head of Product Marketing at Harwin. “These new extended profiles of Datamate connectors offer the stacking heights needed for such applications while maintaining high degrees of mechanical robustness and reliability.”
