har-flex®: Compact, versatile and rugged

har-flex®

expand the design options for industrial devices

HARTING's har-flex® product family connectors with 1.27 mm contact pitch are expanding the design options for industrial devices. The flexibility and performance requirements for controllers and drivers have grown rapidly in recent years. At the same time, miniaturization is advancing unabated. har-flex® accommodates both trends.

Straight and angled connectors are available as PCB models. Together with the connectors for flat ribbon connection, PCBs can be combined into complex systems perfectly adapted to their surroundings. All har-flex® connectors are available with from 6 to 100 contacts, in increments of two. In addition to the connectors for flat ribbon connection, HARTING also offers assembled cables.

The compact but rugged design of har-flex® also guarantees reliable operation under adverse conditions. Two large holders ensure that the connectors are firmly held in place after the soldering. A low-wear insertion and withdrawal procedure is achieved by a very smooth contact point between the male and female contacts. This is the result of special follow-up treatment during the punching process which HARTING applies based on its extensive experience with punching technology.

For an uninterrupted production chain, the connector is delivered in packaging suitable for machines and can be processed in the SMT solder process. In spite of the rugged design, har-flex® connectors are also suitable for high data rates, which means that they can handle modern transfer protocols such as Gigabit Ethernet or PCI Express.
