LISLE, Ill. -- April 16, 2013

Molex Incorporated has released several new versions of its Brad® mPm®
external thread, field attachable DIN valve connectors for hydraulic,
pneumatic and electromagnetic devices. Now available in DIN Form B, C and
Micro versions with electronic circuitry, the Brad mPm valve connectors
feature standard circuitry options, including LED and bi-polar LED indicators,
blocking diodes and voltage-dependent resistors (VDRs) to protect against
over-voltage or peaks, plus built-in circuit protection and LED indicators.

“The addition of these new versions, combined with extensive standard
circuitry options and protective features, makes the Brad mPm DIN valve
connector line the most extensive within the industry to meet the most
challenging valve applications,” says Gilberto Rizzo, global product manager,

Brad mPm ^ DIN valve connectors conform to industry standard EN 175301-803
(formerly DIN 43650) for electrical connectors used with solenoid valves in
hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Compared with other products on the market,
the internal volume of the Brad mPm DIN Form C housing is increased by 30
percent with no change to the external dimensions of the connector. This
improves overall handling, wire routing and speed of assembly, with no impact
on the space required, and makes it suitable as a drop-in replacement for
internal nut versions. The ergonomic external nut design on the mPm DIN valve
connector provides greater and consistent torque for a more uniform seal
between connector and cable, and 20 percent greater cable-retention force over
internal nut designs for increased reliability.

The mated mPm DIN valve connectors achieve IP67 sealing performance to enable
a greater range of application opportunities in rugged environments. Brad mPm
DIN connectors ship ‘ready-to-use’ in single sets or as bulk components to
save time per part and costs. Pre-terminated and overmolded mPm DIN valve
connectors are available in standard lengths. They can accommodate PG9 and
PG11 cable and up to 9mm cable outer diameter.

“Known industry-wide for performance and reliability, the expanded range of
mPm DIN valve connectors delivers superior Brad quality, with even more ‘one
size fits all’ options, so customers benefit from reduced connector inventory
and labor costs,” adds Rizzo.
