This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

Harwin Gecko Screw-Lok Connectors

Harwin Gecko Screw-Lok Connectors have ruggedized screw fixings for increased security in high vibration and high shock applications. 

The captive stainless steel fixing hardware also resists corrosion caused by salt spray and humidity. The connectors have a 1.25mm pitch and are up to 45% smaller and 75% lighter than Micro-D connectors. 

Screw-Lok connectors are easy to mate due to the “Mate-before-Lok” mechanism, which allows full mating of the connectors before engaging the screws. Male and female through-hole, surface mount, and cable connectors are available in through-hole or surface-mount variants with up to 50 contacts. 

Individual contacts are rated for up to 2.8A, and the connectors can operate from -65°C to +150°C.
