Designed to protect the pins of the har-bus HM connector protruding from the rear side of a backplane from irregular mating tolerances, the har-bus HM Shroud ensures a quality connection for rear I/O solutions. To accommodate pc board thickness from 1.6 to 4 mm nominal, the shrouds have integrated standoffs of corresponding height. The shroud can be mounted without the additional requirement of spacers to ensure the desired pin lengths on the rear side of the pc board. Fixing of the component is carried out on the rear post via a smooth friction fit process. For ease of assembly, the same tooling is utilized for assembly as for the press fit connectors on the front side. The shroud is priced starting at $0.85 each.
