Harwin Gecko-MT mixed-layout connectors

Harwin has introduced Gecko-MT connectors — mixed-layout versions of its Gecko-SL series. By complementing the data contacts with two or four power contacts (in power/data configurations of either 1+8+1 or 2+8+2), the products are designed to enable space and weight reductions in electronic hardware. This means they address modern system designs where major constraints can be placed on these parameters. The respective power and data current ratings are 10 and 2.8 A max per contact.

The initial release comprises female and male cable connectors, plus female vertical and male right-angle PCB connector options. These components are fitted with sturdy, stainless steel screw-lock fixings (in both conventional and reversed formats), to ensure ongoing interconnect integrity in challenging application environments. They have 20G vibration and 100G shock resilience and their operational temperature range spans from -65 to 150°C. Low outgassing properties are also exhibited.

By encompassing both data and power in a single compact and lightweight solution, the connectors are optimised for avionics, defence, space and motorsport. Among the key target applications are robotics, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), battery management and satellites.

The connectors should enable engineers to streamline their designs, improve size and weight profiles and reduce bill-of-materials costs by using a smaller component than comparable Micro-D connectors. By combining power and signal in one robust mating pair, Harwin says savings can be made in both weight and space, without any compromise in performance or longevity.
