Harting distributed in ANZ by Soanar, have released the new MicroTCATM connector that complies with the requirements of the “Rugged MicroTCA” specification. The HARTING MicroTCA connector was tested according to the requirements of the “Rugged MicroTCA” PICMG specification under development and passed these tests successfully.

The HARTING con:card+ connector for MicroTCA backplanes and the Plug Connector for AdvancedMC modules passed the vibration sine and shock test of the MTCA.1 “Rugged Air Cooled” specification without contact interruptions.

The contact test according to the MTCA.3 “Hardened Conduction Cooled” specification and the related 40g shock test in accordance with MIL-STD-810 were passed by the con:card+ connector successfully.

The HARTING MicroTCA con:card+ connector with the patented Guidespring contributes to this result and hence supports the further development of the “Rugged MicroTCA” specification.
