1.25mm micro signal high-reliability connectors now with 20, 26, 34 and 50 contacts
These sizes are available in all the existing connector designs including vertical PCB through-board and SMT in both male and female, horizontal PCB through-board in male, cable housings in both male and female, and metal (aluminium) back shells for both male and female cable housings.
The total number of new options added to the range is 36. As with the existing Gecko Screw-Lok products, the new additions feature ruggedized ‘mate before lock’ stainless steel screw fixings for increased security with inbuilt corrosion resistance against salt spray and humidity. Pivotal to the success of the Gecko product family are Harwin’s patented single piece 4-finger beryllium copper female contacts. These can withstand up to 1,000 repeated mating cycles without any loss of performance. The connector design is also optimized to withstand high vibration, shock and extremes of temperature, thereby ensuring optimum electrical performance and durability when placed under the harshest of operational conditions, even in these larger size envelopes.
Throughout the range, contacts are rated to 2.8A individually and 2.0A for all contacts simultaneously. Gecko-SL can cope with operating temperatures spanning from -65°C to +150°C, as well as enduring 20g vibration and Z axis 100g 6m/s shock, with no discontinuity greater than 1µs.
