Harwin’s Gecko family of 1.25mm pitch hi-rel connectors won the 2013 Elektra Product of the Year Award in the Passive & Electromechanical category. Harwin’s Scott Flower, Product Manager for Gecko Connectors, who is also the chief designer of the Gecko family, received the award, saying: “We are delighted that Gecko has been received so positively in the market. Winning an Elektra is a validation of Harwin’s policy of keeping all key design and manufacturing processes in the UK.
To win against such stiff competition makes this award even more special and I would like to thank Electronics Weekly on behalf of all my colleagues at Harwin for putting on such a wonderful event.” Harwin’s low profile G125 series connectors are designed to offer high performance in a miniature package. The 1.25mm pin spacing results in a 35% space saving over other high-performance connectors such as Micro-D.
