New Gecko connectors save space; deliver high performance at commercial price levels

Hi-Rel just got smaller – new 1.25mm connectors from Harwin suit demanding applications

Harwin, the leading manufacturer of Hi-Rel interconnect solutions and cost-saving PCB hardware products, has introduced a new high-reliability connector family based on a 1.25mm pitch. Named Gecko, the new connectors have benefited from Harwin's exceptional track record of manufacturing high-reliability connectors for safety-critical applications.

Harwin's low profile G125 series connectors are designed to offer high performance in a miniature package. The 1.25mm pin spacing results in a 35% space saving over other high-performance connectors such as Micro-D. The connectors are rated to handle 2A per contact. Tested and proven to allow high performance in extreme conditions, the G125 family can operate within a wide temperature range (-65 to +150degC) and under extreme vibration (Z axis 100g 6m/s). This high performance is made possible by Harwin's four-finger patented Copper Alloy contact.

Offering up to 50 contacts per connector and available in dual row cable-to-board and board-to-board configurations, Gecko family connectors include a wealth of features including polarization points that prevent mis-mating, easy identification of the No 1 position for fast visual inspection and optional latches that allow simple and fast de-latching that requires no special tooling. Cable connectors feature a rear potting wall adding an extra level of strain relief

Comments (Andrew McQuilken, Harwin's CEO): "There are millions of our Datamate connectors being used today in harsh environment applications. We have incorporated all the features that we have developed over the years thanks to user feedback on that 2mm connectors series within the new Gecko 1.25mm pitch products, so we can confidently expect a wide market uptake in applications including; UAVs and Aerospace, medical, motor sport, robotics, defense, oil and gas exploration and instrumentation – in fact anywhere where performance and safety is paramount."

G125 Connectors are manufactured to withstand high numbers of mating cycles but also feature low insertion and extraction forces. Moldings are manufactured from RoHS-compliant, environmentally friendly materials, eliminating harmful chemicals even before they are added to restricted substances lists. Pre-assembled cable configurations are available in a variety of layouts featuring male and female single and double ended in a variety of standard lengths. Connectors are packaged in tape and reel format.
