Harwin launches ultra-reliable, durable three-point SMT contact for advanced automated assembly

The hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer Harwin has unveiled the SYCAMORE surface-mount socket providing both superior pin retention and durability for high-volume applications manufactured using advanced automated systems.

The hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer Harwin has unveiled the SYCAMORE surface-mount socket providing both superior pin retention and durability for high-volume applications manufactured using advanced automated systems.

SYCAMORE’s design features three points of contact, providing continuity and robustness previously only available from two-piece assemblies which are rarely available on Tape & Reel.

Key markets for SYCAMORE include domestic and commercial gas detection systems, fire alarms and metering systems, plus many other applications which require modules and devices such as field-replaceable parts or temperature-sensitive components to be mounted to a PCB.

SYCAMORE is a proprietary Harwin contact design with patents pending. It is a single-part SMT socket design featuring a low profile of only 0.3mm above the PCB.Available in top and bottom entry versions, it accepts 1.0mm or 1.50mm diameter pins and is open-ended, so mating pin depth is not limited.

Manufactured from Beryllium copper, contacts are gold-plated to ensure high conductivity and durability over a temperature range of -50°C to +125°C.
