Connector’s pre-leading contacts protect sensitive electronics

HARTING Angled male versions of firm’s miniaturized har-flex SMT connectors can be ordered with pre-leading contacts, an option for manufacturers to protect sensitive electronics from damage during operational plugging and unplugging. This special-order variant addresses a particular risk associated with modifying modular electronic systems. Devices contain contacts of two different lengths, which are 0.3mm longer in the mating face and ensure that functions like the grounding contact are the first to connect during insertion and the last to disconnect during unplugging. http://www.HARTING.ca
