High-reliability connector solutions enable engineers to push SWaP boundaries

24-11-2022 | Mouser Electronics | Industrial

Mouser provides a wide range of high-reliability connectors from Harwin. Created to supply robust performance in harsh environments, these high-reliability interconnect families support demanding aviation, defence, medical, and high-end industrial applications. These durable connectors are proven to perform in extreme conditions of shock, vibration and temperature.

These high-reliability connectors permit engineers to examine new boundaries of SWaP optimisation. The company interconnect includes the Gecko series, a range of 1.25mm-pitch connectors with the durability of 1,000 mating cycles and added power contacts at 10A max. It offers a patented four-finger contact design, providing electrical contact even during periods of high vibration and shock.

These high-reliability connectors include the 2mm and 4mm Datamate connectors and the M300 3mm connectors. Constructed to withstand extreme conditions, they feature an operating temperature range of -55C to +125C, while M300 resists a temperature range of -65C to +175C. The Kona family offers 8.5mm pitch connectors and delivers a maximum voltage rating of 3kV with 60A per contact.
