Molex, LLC Key Developments

Molex's Custom Optical Fiber to be Used on NASA Satellite and in Ground Support Equipment

Molex announced that its Polymicro Technologies™ optical fiber is being used to build NASA’s Ice, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2). The satellite, slated to be launched in 2017 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, will measure changes in Earth features, from melting ice sheets to thinning sea ice to growing trees. The specialty optical fiber from Molex will be used onboard ICESat-2 and in Ground Support Equipment (GSE) assemblies that enable integration and testing. The custom fibers are composed of high OH glass/glass fiber, including a glass core, glass cladding layer, acrylate buffer and a protective Nylon outer jacket. The Mars Rover Curiosity includes an armor jacketed fiber optic assembly built with Molex Polymicro Technologies FVA300330500 (High OH) fiber. The assembly connects to the body-mast unit on the vehicle’s ChemCam active remote sensing instrument. ICESat-2’s photon-counting laser altimeter will measure the round trip time of individual laser photons reflecting off the ground and returning to the satellite’s receiver telescopes at a rate of 10,000 laser pulses per second. By matching those times with the satellite’s precise location in space, the mission will determine the elevation of features on Earth.

Molex Introduces Woodhead LED Tube Light

Molex has launched the Woodhead LED Tube Light. Improving on an established, extremely durable tube light design, the new light replaces fluorescent lamps with LEDs and can be used in critical construction and maintenance applications. The durability of industrial light fixtures has long been a pain point for construction and maintenance workers in industrial and aerospace/defense industries. Also, insufficient lamp life leads to burn-outs and elevated lamp replacement costs. Due to their mercury content, disposal of fluorescent lamps can be complex and expensive. The ballast-free Woodhead LED Tube Light is composed of four 4-foot LED T10 lamps, which shorten and lighten the fixture compared to a fluorescent fixture. A 16/3 SOOW output cord utilizes a NEMA 5-15 Watertite Connector with closure cap for enhanced durability on feed-through versions. The light comes with Velcro straps to enable custom mounting.

Molex, LLC Introduces Brad M12 Power F-Coded Cordsets and Receptacles

Molex, LLC has introduced Brad M12 Power F-Coded cordsets and receptacles, featuring an current carrying capacity of up to 16A per pin with a blind-mate key design. While the products were developed to meet the growing power requirements of motors, solenoid-operated valves, actuation equipment and 24V DC auxiliary power systems in automation control systems, they are also well suited for LED lighting and commercial vehicle applications. The F-Coding mating interface prevents accidental usage with other M12 connectors being used for input, output, signal or industrial network connections. Also, the blind-mate key design significantly reduces the chance of mis-mating, especially in restricted access locations where visibility is limited. To eliminate the chance of electrical shock, connector pins are recessed in a contact carrier. An enhanced receptacle design more efficiently dissipates heat generated by the higher current-carrying capability while maintaining its compact size. The four-pin, M12 connectors accommodate wire sizes up to 14 AWG/2.5mm2 and are rated for 300V AC/DC operation with a dielectric withstanding voltage of 1,600V. Operating temperature range for the connectors is -20 to +90ºC and an IP67 seal interface makes them ideal for use in harsh and wet industrial environments. The connectors are dust proof and can be temporarily submerged in up to 1m (3' 3.37") of water. In addition to panel mount male /female receptacle cordsets, the F-Coded series includes single-ended and double-ended cordsets, with straight or 90° male or female connectors.
