Harwin has widened the scope of its portfolio of ready-made high-reliability cable assemblies. The Gecko Screw-Lok (Gecko-SL) 1.25mm connector family grows on the options already offered employing the company’s Datamate products. A more extensive range of cable assemblies can be sourced, circumventing any upfront investment in equipment and staff training costs to carry out this work in-house. Offered in both single and double-ended arrangements, the cable assemblies fully comply with the set IPC-620 cable and wire harnessing industry standard. They can be defined for either cable-to-cable or cable-to-board implementations. Each cable has a 26AWG wire gauge PTFE construction and is offered in 150/300/450mm (6/12/18″) lengths. The assemblies are completely compatible with current metal backshells, for both added mechanical robustness and strong EMC resilience. Due to the hexagon-slotted screw fixings and mate-before-lock mechanism, these strong assemblies are straightforward to deploy, particularly in space-constrained environments. They benefit from the inherent resilience that the connectors display to high degrees of shock/vibration and extreme temperatures, including th...
