Harwin Gecko-MT 1.25mm Mixed Layout Connectors

Harwin’s Gecko-MT 1.25mm mixed layout connectors combine signal and power contacts in a lightweight and compact housing that can be used in extreme environments, such as aviation, defense, motorsports, and others. 

The connectors are offered with 2 or 4 power contacts and 8 signal contacts, with 10A and 2A per contact for each type, and a 1.25mm signal pin pitch to minimize size and weight. Gecko-MT connectors can operate at extreme temperatures, can withstand high levels of shock and vibration, and have stainless steel locking screws to secure the connection. 

The connectors also meet NASA and ESA outgassing requirements for use in space. Cable housings are compatible with Gecko backshells, and PCB connectors are offered in vertical or right-angle versions.
