This episode of Tech Specs is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

Harwin Gecko-MT Mixed Layout Connectors

The Gecko-MT series adds power contacts to the popular Gecko-SL series, and the mixed layout lets you reduce the size and weight of your design. Gecko-MT is available in a variety of configurations with 8 signal contacts and 2 or 4 power contacts — with power contacts rated for 10A and signal for 2A of current.

The connectors are compact, with a 1.25mm signal pin pitch and lightweight plastic housing. They also feature stainless steel screw-lok fixings and Harwin’s patented four-finger contact design, delivering 20G vibration and 100G shock tolerance to ensure interconnect integrity. 

Harwin’s Gecko-MT series can be used at temperatures from -65°C to 150°C, and their combination of size, weight, power, and rugged performance make them ideal for aviation, space, EVs and other applications.
