optimized its surface mount assembly version of the D-Subminiature connector to provide reliable processing and long-term usage, company says. It allows surface mounting of this standard connector, simplifying printed circuit board (PCB) assemblies and broadening its range of application.


Harting makes a rugged surface mount assembly version of the D-Subminiature connector.

Robust design includes stamped terminals and specially designed insulator. Die cast brackets offer a large solder area on each side of the connector to add significant physical mounting resiliency. The brackets also control the center of gravity to secure stability of the connector along the reflow process. The insulator includes two “no insertion force” positioning pegs for pick and place process reliability and a large flat surface for a vacuum pipette. Riveted nuts are designed so that their square rear side is inserted into the matching square hole in the brackets, so they do not loosen, Harting says. Nine and 15 pole versions are delivered in 120 piece reels. For larger sizes, packaging can be made according to customer equipment.

The product range includes 9 to 25 positions, standard angled with a large choice of mounting hardware. Performance levels 2 and 3 are standard; for other requirements, please contact Harting. A low profile range is planned.
