HARTING's 3B and 3C DIN 41612 product range are a line of smaller connectors ideal for small PCBs. The new 3B and 3C DIN 41612 products complement the existing type 2B and 2C HARTING product ranges. The connectors with 20 or 30 pins are based on 0.1 inch (2.54 mm) contact spacing and can carry 2 A per contact. They are tested according to the IEC 60 603-2.
Both the male and female connectors can be ordered with or without fixing flange, which further decreases the required space. The connectors are available for press-in termination, wave soldering and Surface Mount Compatible (SMC) processes. For the SMC versions, high temperature material is used which makes them ideally suited for reflow soldering.
The density of the electronics on modern PCBs is steadily increasing, while both circuit boards and components are becoming smaller. This trend is driving demand for smaller connectors with the well-known robustness of DIN 41612. Therefore we have developed new tooling for smaller DIN41612 connectors. These smaller DIN41612 connectors fulfill the trend we see towards miniaturization.
