Rugged, reliable Hot Shoe connector technology designed for ease of use

25 April 2006

Harwin’s new Hot Shoe technology connectors employ spring loaded or compliant contacts, which maintain a positive contact force against the mating half of the connector, ensuring reliable connection even under the most demanding conditions. Fabricated using highly durable plastics, the connectors are designed to withstand dust, water and chemical agent ingress.

Featuring low mating forces, the Hot Shoe range enables rapid and simple connection. The connectors tolerate mating misalignment and are often polarised ensuring no possibility of mis-mating. The robust nature of the range ensures continued reliability throughout a product’s entire lifecycle, whether on the combat arena or in less harsh environments. Hot Shoe connectors are also suitable for use in portable equipment where separate battery modules are used, for data transfer docking stations, and for battery charging and data communications equipment. Other applications include thermal imaging cameras, in-vehicle detachable equipment, and hand held scanners


Harwin leads the market in this field and has in-house manufacturing capabilities ranging from initial design consultation to full production, resulting in close control of costs. The company works together with customers to fully understand what is required and offers a fast turnaround on prototypes.
