Molex has introduced 8- and 20-circuit mid-power versions to the MultiCat Power Connector System with Precision-Machined Contacts. This system provides durability and can be mated quickly and ensures proper connection via connector position assurance, making it effective in multiple industry categories. With this connector system, customers will be able to use a reliable connector in a smaller space while minimising costs.
This new connector system offers a lightweight and compact wire-to-wire or wire-to-board configuration; a UL1977 finger-test-certified receptacle; an operating temperature from -40 to +150˚C; a two-piece hermaphroditic back shell; a visual connector position assurance feature allowing you to see the connector is properly engaged and two keying options. The mid-power version also offers low contact resistance and solid mass contact.
"We are always striving to create value for our customers," said Michael Gonzalez, Global Product Manager, Molex. "With this product, we open up possibilities for those needing lightweight, small-form factors appropriate for high temperature and high cycle applications."
The MultiCat High-Power and Mid-Power Connector Systems provide connector position assurance and a positive lock that are activated by hand, making it easy to mate and unmate. This decreases assembly and maintenance time compared to competing products in the market.
