Harwin Archer Kontrol Board-to-Board Connectors 

Harwin’s Archer Kontrol series is durable, robust, and compact board-to-board connectors that provide designers flexibility and reliability in industrial, handheld, and transportation systems. The 1.27 mm pitch Kontrol series are fully shrouded and polarized, making them ideal for blind mating and increasing resilience to lateral and twisting forces experienced in high vibration environments. The connectors are available in male and female vertical or horizontal surface mount options with various stacking heights and up to 80 pins. They’re packaged in tape and reel for use in automated assembly and have location pegs to improve placement during assembly, while solder tabs provide PCB strain relief to further enhance reliability.
