Molex, LLC Key Developments

Molex Launches the MXMag Gigabit Single-Port RJ45 Connector

Molex has introduced the MXMag Gigabit Single-Port RJ45 connector. With options suitable for automated reflow-solder assembly, the integrated magnetic jack provides OEMs with a high-speed assembly solution without compromising the robust and reliable through-hole PCB connection. Other key features of the MXMag Gigabit Single-Port RJ45 connector are its robust design and compact size, with a depth of just 21.56mm (0.85"). Many OEMs are looking to transition to automated assembly processes in order to increase productivity and reduce costs, and the MXMag Gigabit Single-Port RJ45 connector offers multiple packaging options to support that process. Those options include tape and reel packaging for pick-and-place and tray packaging for standard assembly.

Molex Introduces the Micro-Fit™ TPA Single Row Receptacle

Molex has introduced the Micro-Fit™ TPA Single Row Receptacle, which offers a TPA integrally molded with the housing. The integrated TPA (terminal position assurance) feature ensures terminal seating. The reduction in terminal back-out is made possible by ensuring proper terminal seating and providing a secondary terminal retention feature. For example, assemblers cannot close the TPA unless the terminal is properly seated. Also, the receptacles provide backward compatibility with existing Micro-Fit 3.0™ connectors and terminals, eliminating the need for customers to make major revisions or investments in their applications and enabling running change implementation to incorporate the new TPA receptacle. Applications for Micro-Fit TPA Single Row Receptacles include consumer and home appliances, data/computing (desktops, workstations, power supplies and UPSs) telecommunications/networking (servers, routers and switches) and automotive/commercial vehicle (harnesses, non-sealed applications and inside devices). Single-row, wire-to-wire and wire-to-board configurations are available immediately with 2 to 7 circuits. For 8 to 12 circuit configurations, contact Molex.

Molex Introduces Brad M40 Overmolded Cordsets

Molex has introduced Brad® M40 Overmolded Cordsets, which are designed for high-power applications such as servo motors. The Molex circular-connector overmolded cordset portfolio now ranges from M5 to M40 sizes, and the M40 offering is extended to include field-attachable connectors and panel-mounted receptacles. Brad M40 Overmolded Cordsets are available in standard lengths of 2, 3, 5, 7 and 10m, and in 6-pole (3+2+PE) and 8-pole (4+3+PE) connector configurations in the defacto industry standard. Power pins are each rated at up to 37A with signal pins rated at 16A. With a connection time of less than one minute, machine downtime is minimized and maintenance costs reduced. The cordsets come pre-assembled, which mitigates wiring errors. When mated, Brad M40 Overmolded Cordsets have an IP-67 rating and are sealed to protect against dust ingress and temporary submersion in water to depths of 1m.
