HARTING features new interconnection solutions

At Southern Electronics 2013, the HARTING Technology Group will be featuring its broad range of electrical and electronics interconnection solutions, including a number of innovative new products. The HARTING Technology Group’s electronics assembly operation – HARTING Integrated Solutions (HIS) - will also be demonstrating its backplane and sub-assembly capabilities. On show will be the har-flexicon, a miniature individual conductor connection technology with 1.27 mm spacing for field-assembly.

Consisting of a pluggable SMD terminal block, with IDC wire connection, it allows the rapid, tool-less termination of single wires directly on to a PCB, with the benefits of low processing costs, compatibility with automatic SMT mounting and reflow soldering process, and a high level of rigidity with large-area SMT fixings. Also new are a number of enhancements to the HARTING har-flex robust circuit-board connector family which extend its versatility in a wide range of board-to- board and board-to-cable applications with a contact pitch of 1.27 mm. The different har-flex variants can be freely combined and enable modular device configurations. The spatial requirement on the circuit board is minimised thanks to the variable number of contacts from six to 100. har-flex data transmission meets the requirements of modern transmission protocols, such as Gigabit Ethernet and PCI Express.

Other electronic interconnection solutions being featured include D-Sub, 2 mm metric, DIN 41612 and IDC types as well as MicroTCA card edge connectors that

are capable of handling the high-speed and ultra-high- speed data rates employed in mobile telecommunications networks.

In the field of industrial connectors, HARTING is also showing its industry-leading Han heavy-duty connector family for sectors ranging from factory automation and machine manufacturing to transportation and wind energy. HARTING’s industrial networking portfolio includes interfaces between industrial automation equipment and sensors and monitoring systems, communications within machines and control systems, and links between the industrial and office computing environments.

HARTING Integrated Solutions is featuring its electronics assembly capabilities, along with its expertise in project development, prototyping, test and evaluation. The company is an ISO9001 supplier, and its Northampton based manufacturing facility designs, manufactures and tests high-speed multi-layer backplanes and integrates them into card frames and enclosures.

Cable assemblies from simple ribbon to advanced wiring looms are also offered.

Stadium Group is a provider of integrated electronic technologies to the professional electronics market with manufacturing sites in the UK and Asia. The recent acquisition of IGT Industries, a long established leader in HMI solutions, combined with their existing power supply manufacturing and EMS businesses , means Stadium can now offer customers a fully integrated design and build solution from a single supplier source, creating added value throughout the product life cycle and reducing time to market. Visitors to Southern Manufacturing will be able to meet the new-look company together in one place for the first time and explore opportunities
