Reliability Just Got Smaller
Harwin Range of micro Miniature connectors. Gecko is the new high-reliability; high performance connector from Harwin that is small, withstands extreme temperatures and is unshockable!
Harwin's Gecko range is the winner of Passive and Electromechanical Product of the Year 2013.
The Heart of the Connector
At the heart of the connector is the four-finger copper-alloy contact.
The precision-turned contact ensures no discontinuity of signal under extremes of shock and vibration, is highly durable and is capable of carrying 2.0A per contact. The contacts are designed to withstand high numbers of mating cycles but also feature low insertion and extraction forces.
