Harwin’s Gecko 1.25mm pitch connector series of low-profile, dual row cable-to-board and board-to-board interconnects present now the new Gecko Screw-Lok series featuring ruggedized screw fixings for increased security and repeated mating cycles without damage. Up to 45% smaller than Micro-D connectors and up to 75% lighter, Gecko-SL delivers high reliability with a smaller footprint and increased flexibility for design engineers.
Withstanding high vibration, shock and extremes of temperature ensuring optimum electrical performance and durability under harsh conditions. Available in female and male vertical through-hole and surface-mount variants for the PCB, and cable connector housings and contacts. Gecko-SL contacts are rated to 2.8A individually, 2.0A for all contacts simultaneously. Able to withstand 1,000 mating cycles, they are ideal for long life or “fit and forget” applications, in operational temperatures of -65°C to +150°C. Gecko-SL connectors are rated to withstand 20g vibration and Z axis 100g 6m/s shock, with no discontinuity greater than 1µs, Z axis 100g. Gecko-SL connectors are manufactured from environmentally-friendly materials and are lead, phosphate and halogen free.
Shielded options with machined aluminium backshells are available to deliver enhanced electrical continuity and effective EMI/RFI shielding in affected applications. The backshells are designed to accommodate flexible metal braiding and are strong and lightweight. Flexible cabling options include complete cable harnesses in customised lengths, loose mouldings and pre-crimped wires and loose mouldings and crimp contacts.
