Harwin Introduces Multiport Coaxial Connectors that Operate up to 6 GHz

Harwin has introduced a new range of standard layout, multiport coaxial connectors that operate up to 6 GHz, suitable for hi-reliability applications. Designed for use with RG178 cables, the ganged 50 ohm connectors are available from stock with two, four, six or eight contacts.

Expansions to the range now include ready-made ganged multiport coax cable assemblies, with a length of 150 mm. The cable harnesses are supplied with female / jack coax connectors assembled on either one or both ends of the wires. RG178 coax cable is used in these assemblies, constructed at Harwin’s Cable Assembly facility in the United States. Based on Harwin’s proven high-reliability Datamate connector family, the coax connectors are designed with a single body molding to resist extremes of shock, vibration and temperature in challenging application environments such as Defense, Aerospace, Satellites, UAVs, Undersea and more.

The female connectors are equipped with hexagonal slotted jackscrews for secure fixing between connectors, and moldings are polarised to facilitate quick, error-free mating. Vertical and horizontal orientation styles are available for the male connectors, and offer a choice of termination lengths for 1.6 and 3.2 mm PCB thicknesses.

The new ganged coax connectors are durable enough to withstand 500 mating cycles and feature a 1.3 mm contact wiping distance to ensure secure mating even under the harshest of operating conditions. Like all other members of Harwin Datamate connector family, devices are designed to be deployed in applications where failure is not an option.

New to this range, the PCB fixing options for the male PCB board mount connectors are sold separately:

  • M80-2130000B: Slotted Nut for Vertical PCB board mount
  • M80-2430000B: Hexagonal Nut for Vertical PCB board mount
  • M80-2260000B: Slotted 3.5mm long Bolt for Horizontal PCB board mount
  • M80-2270000B: Slotted 5mm long Bolt for Horizontal PCB board mount
  • M80-2320000B: Hex Socket 5mm long Bolt for Horizontal PCB board mount
