New Stacking Heights for the Miniaturised PCB Connectors


HARTING adds two new stack heights to the compact har-flex 1.27 mm pitch board-to-board connectors for optimally using space in PCB and device designs

hartingNew stack heights are making the har-flex PCB connector family the right choice for optimizing the use of space in PCB and device design. They complete the range of 8-20 mm spacings in the har-flex family. The 1.27 mm interface offers a uniquely wide range of pole counts, fixings, design heights and reliable parameters for soldering.

New stacking heights of 4.85 mm and 13.65 mm enable continuous spacing of 8 – 20 mm

In order to space one or more PCBs correctly in a device, HARTING is extending the har-flex family by straight male connectors (stack height 4.85 mm) and female connectors (stack height 13.65 mm).


These complete the range and from the first quarter in 2019 will allow PCB spacing from 8 to 20 mm. The har-flex IDC Ribbon Cable connector assemblies are available to provide wider spacing between PCBs, said the firm.

This extensive variety is required as every instance of industrial device design is unique. Each piece of housing needs to allow for different sizes, formats and requirements. The PCBs inside the device must always offset other space factors.

Every PCB must include a defined position for interfaces to the housing wall or other electronic components and these will vary according to the device and its application. In har-flex, HARTING is offering a miniaturised interface that is without parallel in its flexibility.

A compact pitch of 1.27 mm, pin counts ranging from 6-100 as required, finely graded stack heights of male and female connectors from 8-20 mm and fixings with SMT or THR hold-downs satisfy every conceivable requirement.

Cost Effective Power Modules For Space Critical Applications

“In the har-flex range, device developers have the right interface in any dimensions at their fingertips. har-flex fits in almost any application, no matter how small, but at the same time is very robust”, said HARTING.

Fully pick & place enabled for automatic processing

To fit into an increasingly automated manufacturing process, the har-flex is pick & place compatible and suitable for reflow soldering. In order to support users during the processing.

HARTING is presenting the har-flex family at the “electronica” trade fair.
