Miniature connector

Hirose has expanded its miniature connector offering to include a version with blind mating ability. Constructed with self-aligning elements, the HR34P Series panel mount connector guides itself into the correct mating position. Commonly used for rack-to-panel connectivity in base stations, industrial machinery, medical equipment and more, the blind mating connector is designed for applications where the electrical receptacle is recessed or hidden in a way.

Further simplifying assembly, the HR34P Series circular connector features a unique floating screw design that offers a degree of play to absorb misalignment when mating. A gap between the panel and the screw enables floating of ±0.5 mm in X and Y directions. The screws are pre-coated with anti-loosening agent ‘Nylok’. This also reduces assembly time and contributes to reducing the incidence of malfunctions due to variations in the application process, such as vibration and shock impact.
