Molex has released the Micro-Lock Plus Wire-to-Board Connector System as a suitable solution for customers seeking high performance, compact size and retention security. Featuring a 1.5A current rating, small footprint and positive latch, Molex has developed a comprehensive terminal solution for OEMs working in space-constrained environments.

Designed for industries such as automotive, consumer, and industrial automation, the Micro-Lock Plus Connector System is suitable for a variety of applications, including vehicle switches, robotics, drones, home appliances, and power tools.

Offered with 2-42 circuits, single and dual rows, and vertical and horizontal plug configurations, this Molex product was designed with flexibility in mind. It is one of a few 1.25mm pitch compact connector systems rated at a 105˚C operating temperature and 1.5A current rating suitable for use in general market applications. Connectors are offered in a variety of colours to aid assembly via colour coding.

To ensure connectors are fully mated and avoid end-product failure in applications subject to shock, vibration and rough handling, the Micro-Lock Plus Connector System features a wide positive latch that delivers an audible click, providing assemblers added peace of mind.

“Oftentimes, designers have to forgo a positive lock on a connector due to space constraints, sacrificing retention security,” said Kazuhiko Ishikawa, Global Product Manager, Molex. “Molex Micro-Lock Plus Connector System is the smallest connector currently on the market with a positive lock, so engineers no longer have to choose between compactness and retention security.”

Secure contact and terminal retention are also achieved via the robust metal solder tabs and a dual-contact terminal design. Tin-bismuth terminals provide a clean and uninterrupted signal without the whiskering associated with tin plating and added cost of gold plating.
