Harwin’s range of Gecko-MT 1.25mm pitch mixed layout connectors is in stock at Powell Electronics. Gecko-MT connectors are claimed to be the smallest, lightest mixed-layout connectors currently available for high-performance applications where size, weight and power matter such as aerospace, defense and motorsports. The connectors are offered with two or four power contacts and eight signal contacts, with 10A and 2A per contact for each type and a 1.25mm signal pin pitch to minimize size and weight.
With operating temperature range of -65 to 150°C, Gecko-MT devices offer 1,000 mating cycles, a four-finger patented contact design that maintains electrical contact through high vibration (up to 20G for 6h) and shock (up to 100G for 6ms), plus stainless steel locking screws.
The components provide up to 50 contacts per connector and are available in a wide array of configurations. The connectors also meet NASA and ESA outgassing requirements for use in space.
