DIN 41612 connector with shell housing

Harting has expanded its range of DIN 41612 products with a new type 2C/2R crimp female connector with a shell housing.

Tested according to IEC 60603-2, the connector can be populated with up to 48 contacts. Because of its space-saving half size, the connector is ideal for use with compact PCBs or assemblies.

Special consideration has been given in the design to incorporate features that simplify the cable assembly process. The hood features three different cable entry options with predetermined breaking points, allowing them to be easily opened according to customer preference.

The locking levers are moulded into the top half of the shell housing, avoiding the need to fit separate levers. The pre-moulded design offers the additional benefit of fewer individual piece parts, thereby reducing the risk of lost components.

Secure and reliable strain relief is realised with a cable tie that fixes the cable to the shell housing.

The compatible crimp contacts are available on reels with 500 or 5000 contacts for series production or as single contacts for repair and maintenance. The appropriate crimp tools are available as a hand tool, a semi-automatic or a fully automatic tool, depending upon quantities and degrees of automation.

The new DIN 41612 type 2C/2R crimp female connector mates with straight or angled male connectors as well as with shrouds. The shell housing or the female connector can be fastened with screws or locking levers. The new connector exhibits the same degree of robustness as the full-sized models in the range.
