Advanced sealant design reduces cost and simplifies wire-to-board connections in high temperatures.

Molex Incorporated has unveiled high performance MX150 single-row and dual-row headers for use in high-temperature automotive and commercial vehicle applications.

Complementing MX150 receptacle connectors (series 33471 and 33472), the MX150 sealing interface has been optimised to meet IP6K7 and IP6K9K sealing requirements.

“Designed for automotive and commercial vehicles, recreational vehicles, construction equipment, and marine applications, MX150 headers expand on the Molex portfolio of automotive and industrial solutions,” states Corey Schroeder, Industry Marketing Manager, Molex. “In wire-to-board configurations, the pre-assembled, submersible MX150 system simplifies device tooling by incorporating USCAR-specified interface geometry directly into the sealed headers.”

The connector system features all-in-one plug and receptacle housings with pre-assembled, wire and interfacial connector seals. The solder-tail and compliant-pin electrical interfaces provide module design flexibility and lower applied costs by eliminating the need to purchase, handle and crimp individual wire seals.

Integral terminal position assurance (TPA) and optional connector position assurance (CPA) components allow simple terminal insertion and secure seating to prevent accidental disengagement during high vibration and severe shock applications. Plastic seal plugs facilitate sealing of unused circuits. Easy terminal extraction and insertion enable quick, low-cost field repairs.

Integral, two-way matte and interfacial Molex MX150 header seals conform to IEC IP67 and SAE USCAR-2, Rev 4 standards and are rated for use in on-engine, high vibration, under-bonnet and under-chassis environments at class 3 (-40 to +125°C) operating conditions.
