Small, lightweight mixed-layout connectors support 10A

Small, lightweight mixed-layout connectors support 10A
Harwin has continued to extend the scope of its high-reliability (hi-rel) connector portfolio through the introduction of mixed-layout versions of the company’s popular Gecko-SL series. By complementing the data contacts with two or four power contacts (in power/data configurations of either 1+8+1 or 2+8+2), the Gecko-MT products enable significant space and weight reductions in electronic hardware.

Ultra-compact shield clips for space-constrained designs

Ultra-compact shield clips for space-constrained designs
Covering a surface area of just 2.3x1.2mm and with a two millimetre height, Harwin’s S0911-46R shield can clip is the smallest surface mount EMI/RFI shield clip currently available on the market. Consequently it is much better at addressing the demands being set by the latest generation of high-density electronic systems.

Supporting ongoing robotic innovation

Supporting ongoing robotic innovation
Exciting new opportunities for greater proliferation of robotics in modern society are emerging all the time. Robots are now capable of performing a wide array of different tasks. They are revolutionising the factory floor by dramatically boosting production throughput. In the form of collaborative robots (or cobots), they can work directly alongside humans in manufacturing facilities, as well as helping with the education of our children and providing care to the elderly.
