Harwin has expanded its range of ready-to-use cable assemblies for the high reliability range of Gecko connectors with the addition of cable assemblies for the Gecko-SL connectors which feature Screw-Lok (SL) jackscrew fixings.
Gecko is a 1.25mm pitch High-Reliability connector range from Harwin, the Gecko (G125 series) connectors provide a low profile, dual row interconnect solution, ideally suited for stacking and cable mating in areas where PCB real estate is at a premium. Improving on the popular 2mm pitch Datamate series, and harnessing the modern technology of micro-machining, the Gecko range brings the best of the high-reliability specifications to a smaller size. Gecko provides a low-profile, dual-row solution for all variations of cable-to-board, board-to-board and cable-to-cable interconnect requirements. With up to 50 contacts per connector, but still capable of 2A per contact, Gecko gives both significant weight and space-saving advantages over Micro-D connections. The Gecko range offers either latching connectors, for maximum weight and space-saving, or Screw-Lok connectors for maximum mating strain relief.
Gecko connectors are available in three product styles.
The robust build quality and high reliability of the Gecko connectors make them suitable for a wide range of demanding applications including Aviation, Radar, UAVs, Motorsport & Transport, Tracking, Communications, Telemetry, Satellites and Launch systems, Defence & Security, Rugged Vehicle Electronics, Handheld Portable Equipment, Renewable Energy, High-End Industrial and Robotics.
Gecko-SL (Gecko Screw-Lok) Cable assemblies
Accelerating project completion, without tooling expense or allocation of engineering resources
Leveraging Harwin’s considerable expertise, customers now have access to simple and cost-effective interconnect solutions via Harwin’s portfolio of ready-made high-reliability cable assemblies. The award-winning Gecko-SL 1.25mm connector family builds on the options already available with the popular Datamate products. A wider range of cable assemblies can be supplied, avoiding any upfront investment in equipment and staff training costs to carry out such work in-house.
Available in both single- and double-ended arrangements, the Gecko-SL cable assemblies fully comply with the established IPC-620 cable and wire harnessing industry standard. They can be specified for either cable-to-cable or cable-to-board implementations. Each cable has a 26AWG wire gauge PTFE construction, and comes in 150/300/450mm (6/12/18 inch) lengths. The assemblies are fully compatible with existing metal backshells, for both added mechanical robustness and strong EMC resilience. Thanks to the hexagon-slotted screw fixings and mate-before-lock mechanism, these rugged assemblies are straightforward to deploy, especially in space-constrained environments. They benefit from the inherent resilience that Gecko-SL connectors exhibit to high degrees of shock/vibration and extreme temperatures, as well as their relatively strong current carrying capacity (2A per contact, despite the narrow pitch).
Customers can choose from 6 to 50 pin arrays for their assemblies, reducing lead times and simplifying production processes. The necessary fixing hardware is provided – either directly or as part of the backshell kit. All supplied assemblies are 100% continuity checked. This significantly streamlines the system integration process, saving customers time and effort.
