Harwin To Showcase Hi-Rel Datamate Ranges for Unmanned Systems and Robotics Applications At AUVSI Unmanned Systems 2011

Harwin Inc, leading manufacturer of hi-rel connectors and SMT board hardware, will be showcasing its latest products at AUVSI's Unmanned Systems North America from August 16 - 18 in Washington, DC.

SALEM N.H--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Harwin Inc, leading manufacturer of hi-rel connectors and SMT board hardware, will be showcasing its latest products at AUVSI's Unmanned Systems North America from August 16 - 18 in Washington, DC. The company's high-reliability connector ranges have already been proven in a number of products for the unmanned systems market, including NASA's Robonaut programme and Warwick Mobile Robotics' award-winning rescue robot.


Comments Bill Neukomm, VP Sales and Marketing, Harwin North America: "Engineers designing for the unmanned systems market face unique challenges, including ensuring system integrity under conditions of shock, vibration and temperature extremes and are continually looking for ways to optimize performance and reduce system size and cost. Our high-reliability connector ranges include the Datamate high-reliability/high performance 2mm pitch connector system, which has a proven track record under the most extreme conditions, being resistant to 100G shock, 40G bump and 10G vibration and able to operate under temperatures as extreme as -55deg.C to +125deg.C. We recently added a horizontal female style to the product range to further increase the options available to designers. Our Mix-Tek range offers a wide range of signal, power and coaxial contact combinations within one compact connector housing, further increasing design flexibility. As Mix-Tek is a high performance/high reliability connector series it is ideally suited to applications where safety is critical. An additional advantage is that our advanced manufacturing technology enables us to produce both small and large quantities to order."

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
