Compact High-Reliability Connector/Cabling Solutions from Harwin Highlighted at Space Tech Expo Europe
19 October 2023
Space Tech Expo Europe is due to open its doors soon. The event, which comprises a tech-focussed conference plus an exhibition, takes place from 14th to 16th November, in Bremen, Germany. Advanced interconnect supplier Harwin will be participating, with the company’s performance-optimised solutions aimed at handling the exacting demands of space deployment on display at its stand (R10).
Harwin’s rugged connector components have been designed to withstand the vibrations that space-bound hardware is subjected to during launch. They maintain an extended operational lifespan within the vacuum of space (with industry-leading outgassing characteristics), as well as being able to cope with extreme temperatures. They take up minimal board real estate and are lightweight despite their robustness. Among the options available are:
- The streamlined 1.25mm-pitch Gecko family.
- The Gecko-MT family with both signal and power contacts incorporated.
In addition to the standard products it produces, Harwin also provides custom prototypes and small production runs for cable assemblies. As a result, complete interconnect solutions can be delivered.
“From small start-ups to international house-hold names, Harwin has significantly grown its base of space customers in recent years,” states Ryan Smart, VP of Product at Harwin’. “ In particular, we have expanded our presence in the private industry, ‘New Space’ sector where the critical need for competitive advantage drives the choice of innovative, commercial technologies that are not necessarily formally certified to space-grade standards but that still deliver the performance, reliability, small size and low weight needed in space applications.”
