Don’t get cold feet on rugged connections

Designed to ensure reliable connection in demanding conditions, Harwins Hot Shoe connectors employ spring loaded contacts to maintain contact force against the mating half of the connector. Fabricated using durable plastics, the connectors are said to withstand dust, water and chemical ingress.

Hot Shoe connectors are said to feature low mating forces for rapid connection. They can tolerate mating misalignment and can also be polarised to reduce mis-mating. Robust construction makes the range ideal for use in defence applications and harsh environments or for use in portable equipment, for data transfer docking stations and for battery charging and data communications equipment.

Harwins in-house manufacturing capabilities include design to full production, which is said to result in controlled costs.
