Harwin Inc, a leading manufacturer of hi-rel connectors and SMT board hardware, will be showcasing its latest products at AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems North America from August 16-18 in Washington, DC. The company’s high-reliability connector ranges have already appeared in a number of products for the unmanned systems market, including NASA’s Robonaut program and Warwick Mobile Robotics’ award-winning rescue robot.
Comments Bill Neukomm, VP Sales and Marketing, Harwin North America: “Engineers designing for the unmanned systems market face unique challenges, including ensuring system integrity under conditions of shock, vibration and temperature extremes and are continually looking for ways to optimize performance and reduce system size and cost. Our high-reliability connector ranges include the Datamate high-reliability/high performance 2mm pitch connector system, which has a proven track record under the most extreme conditions, being resistant to 100G shock, 40G bump and 10G vibration and able to operate under temperatures as extreme as –55 degrees C to +125 degrees C. We recently added a horizontal female style to the product range to further increase the options available to designers. Our Mix-Tek range offers a wide variety of signal, power and coaxial contact combinations within one compact connector housing, further increasing design flexibility. As Mix-Tek is a high performance/high reliability connector series, it is ideally suited to applications where safety is critical. An additional advantage is that our advanced manufacturing technology enables us to produce both small and large quantities to order.”
