Molex Micro-Lock Plus Wire-to-Board Connector System
By Mario Cywinski
Molex’s Micro-Lock Plus Wire-to-Board connector system is for customers needing a compact wire-to-board connector with a high-current rating up to 3.0A.
The system comes in two sizes, 2.00mm pitch and 1.25mm pitch. The 2.00mm pitch version offers two to 16 circuits in a single row with vertical and horizontal configurations; a connector with a positive lock that has an audible click when it latches; an outer lock to provide extra strength; SMT terminals to prevent whiskering; metal tabs that reduce strain on solder joints; and dual contact points in an expanded terminal and lance area. The 1.25mm pitch version includes a variety of colors; up to 42 circuits in single and dual rows; and an inner lock for dual connections and an outer lock for single connections.
“The new features included in this connector system will make our customers’ lives easier,” said Kazuhiko Ishikawa, global product manager, Molex. “They provide reliability in rugged environments, remain secure in compact applications, and audibly latch to avoid improper mating, a common problem with other micro miniature wire-to-board systems.”
The system meets automotive, industrial and consumer applications requirements and is rated at a 105˚C operating temperature.
