Added orientation for Hi-Rel 1.25mm pitch connector family facilitates mother & daughter-board configuration

Added orientation for Hi-Rel 1.25mm pitch connector family facilitates mother & daughter-board configuration

Gecko - Horizontal male connectors added to range

Gecko Horizontal shown in four fixing variants: with or without latches, with barbed hold-downs or SMT hold-downs.

Harwin has introduced a horizontal version of its 1.25mm pitch hi-rel Gecko connector, reducing the height above PCBs to just 5.6mm. Available in the standard eight positions – 6, 10, 12, 16, 20, 26, 34 and 50 – the new style also facilitates mother & daughter-board configurations.

High Performance

G125 series connectors 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.  Connectors can handle 2A per contact and function within a wide temperature range (-65 to +150 degC) and under extreme vibration (Z axis 100g 6m/s). Other features common to the Gecko connector family include 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 un-mating. Special tooling is available to assist un-mating in confined applications. The horizontal style connectors feature an optional mechanical hold-down latching system for additional connection security.

Increased Design Flexibility

Comments Product Manager, Scott Flower: “Gecko’s high performance is made possible by our patented four-finger Copper Alloy contact which ensures data integrity under extreme shock and vibration conditions. The new styles increase design flexibility, and suit UAVs, space, robotics, subsea and autosport applications.”

Gecko connectors are available on tape and reel packaging for automated assembly processing.
