Harwin introduces ready-made cable assemblies for its Datamate connectors

Harwin has introduced a range of off-the-shelf cable assemblies to accompany its popular Datamate series of high reliability connector components.

Supplied in single- or double-ended format, with a set cable length of 150mm (6 inches), these assemblies are intended to give companies quick and trouble-free access to cabling without having to rely on their own in-house resources or make major investments into an expensive custom-built arrangement.

The assemblies are available direct from stock, ready to order from Mouser eliminating long lead times. They cover both signal (Datamate J-Tek/L-Tek) and power (Datamate Mix-Tek) configurations and are well suited to one-off prototyping work or small-batch projects.

Each assembly is produced in accordance with IPC-A-620 standard concerning wire harnesses and cabling. They are given rigorous electrical testing and go through a comprehensive inspection process both during and after production.

The cables used are PTFE insulated. The signal cables come with 24AWG gauge equipment wire, while the power cables are provided with either 10AWG or 12AWG gauge wire, with 40A or 20A current supported.

Industry-leading resilience to shock (100G for 6ms), vibration (10G for 6 hours, 2 hours/axis) and extreme temperatures (-55°C to +125°C) are all exhibited and they have been designed to cope with up to 500 mating cycles. As a result, the Harwin ready-made assemblies are rugged enough for deployment in challenging application environments, including space, avionics, industrial drives/controls, robotics and motorsport.
