Harwin adds Gecko Screw-Lok to its portfolio

1 min read

Harwin has broadened the scope of its portfolio of ready-made high-reliability cable assemblies.

The Gecko Screw-Lok (Gecko-SL) 1.25mm connector family is now available, which the company has said gives customers rapid access to simple and cost-effective interconnect solutions.

Available in both single- and double-ended arrangements, the Gecko-SL cable assemblies comply with IPC-620 cable and wire harnessing industry standards. They can be specified for either cable-to-cable or cable-to-board implementations.

“We have already seen a big of uptake of our Datamate-based off-the-shelf cable assemblies, and received a lot of positive feedback on their convenience, so bringing this capability to other connectors that Harwin manufactures was clearly a valid course of action,” commented John Brunt, High Reliability Product Manager at Harwin. “Gecko-SL is the preferred high-reliability connector in situations where there are multiple mating operations involved. By offering these cable assemblies, we are now better able to address a more extensive spectrum of customer needs, so they can source the optimal solution.”

Each cable has a 26AWG wire gauge PTFE construction, and comes in 150/300/450mm (6/12/18 inch) lengths. The assemblies are fully compatible with existing metal backshells, for both added mechanical robustness and strong EMC resilience.

Harwin has explained that all supplied assemblies are 100% continuity checked to help streamline the system integration process.
