Blade-on-beam connectors survive rough use

Honda Connectors has introduced a range of connectors that feature blade on beam contacts based on 1.27mm pitch. The applications for PCR series is in the main I/O although Honda has included within this range a small selection of connectors with blade on beam contacts for internal applications. The benefit over conventional pin and socket style contacts is there robustness to contact damage through normal everyday use. Another plus that blade on beam offers is low insertion forces which are a benefit for high pin count applications.

The PCR series starts from 20 positions up to 96 positions and 20 positions through to 128 positions for internal applications. The range includes straight and right angle PCB mount. Through hole and SMT. the cable side connectors are available in IDC and solder contacts. The back shells are available with latch lock and screw lock fixings all with EMC shielding.

Typical applications for there PCR series is: Machine tool, vending machines, microscopic and science equipment and industrial computing equipment.
