Molex Announces Opening of Silicon Valley Technology Center

Molex has announced the official opening of a new technology center located in Fremont, California. The dedication ceremony, held on October 24, 2017, was attended by Molex employees, the Molex Board of Directors and global leadership team, and local and regional dignitaries. Completion of the new building represents a significant investment by Molex to expand support for customers in the Silicon Valley. One of the largest San Francisco Bay area cities, Fremont boasts a vibrant backdrop and expanding area for technology innovators and industry leading companies. The technology center is one of the main innovation hubs for Molex Optical Solutions business and home to sales and customer development teams serving all of Molex customers in the region. Joining these groups are design and application development teams from many other technology businesses, enabling Molex to more rapidly provide solutions for a wide variety of platforms including data centers, telecommunications, and enterprise networks. The new technology center expands the scope and breadth of Molex design resources for Silicon Valley developers of medical devices, autonomous vehicles and other transportation technologies, as well as innovators in industrial automation. The 108,000-sq. ft. building features over 50 miles of Molex Optical and Copper Cable Assembly Solutions, patch panels, adapter panels, modular office electronics and wire management tools. Advanced building capabilities include an intelligent, low-voltage Molex Transcend Network Connected Lighting System using a Power over Ethernet (PoE) LED lighting network to enable energy savings through sensor feedback.

Molex Adds Sealed Versions, Additional Plating Options to Its Compact Mini50 Connector System

Molex has added three new terminals plus the Mini50 sealed connector following the launch of its highly popular Mini50 Wire-to-Board Connector System. Designated as TAK50 terminal, CTX50 unsealed gold terminal, and CTX50 sealed terminal, these new terminals enable vehicle manufacturers to take advantage of miniaturized interconnect systems in both interior (unsealed) and exterior (sealed) applications. The new Mini50 sealed connector features a rounded shape for through hole harness routing and a vertical independent secondary lock (ISL) that is shipped pre-assembled, thus reducing the number of individual components. Approximately 50% smaller than the USCAR 0.64mm interfaces, the 0.5mm automotive approved Mini50 connector system's range addresses a growing demand from vehicle manufacturers for smaller components solutions due to the growth in on board electronics and installation space restrictions. The new models also provide reduced overall harness weight savings by allowing wire-harness customers to crimp and process smaller wire gauges versus traditional 0.64mm terminal systems. Ideal for applications such as infotainment and body control lighting modules, the new TAK50 terminal from Molex features a two beam design and is AK blade and cavity compatible. Environmentally tested and validated to GMW3191 (2012) with temperature ratings of 85sC to 105sC and LV214 (2010) featuring 105sC and 130sC, the TAK50 terminal accepts 0.13mm² to 0.35mm² cables. Offering superior performance over equivalent competitor products in areas such as contact engage and disengage force, crimp interface and current rating, the TAK50 terminal benefits from a pin alignment feature for connection accuracy and an anti-stub feature. The new variant can also be used in areas around the vehicle that require interconnects that are able to cope with high vibration. The CTX50 unsealed female terminals are now available with a gold option for low current, safety, and high mating cycle applications. They are also ideal for deployment in corrosive environments. Accepting cable sizes of 0.13mm² to 0.35mm², CTX50 gold terminals, as compared to 0.64mm alternatives, deliver the benefit of weight and space savings, better conductivity, lower insertion force, and are more resistant to oxidization. Molex has also developed a sealed variant, namely the CTX50 sealed, IP68 without optional back shell and IP69 with optional back shell, for use in exterior vehicle electronic systems that are liable to encounter moisture. Available in either tin or silver plating, the new terminal accepts 0.95 to 1.4mm² diameter cables. The polarization of the cable is achieved by terminal shape, thus maintaining seal integrity and the service and/or probe holes are distinct from the mating pin hole to ensure the risk of accidental insertion is minimized.
