LISLE, Ill. ‚â€“ Molex Incorporated (NASDAQ: MOLX and MOLXA) is expanding its CMC (Connectors Modular for Controllers) product line. Available in standard and power versions, Molex‚â€™s CMC product line can be used for several modes of transportation vehicles, including cars, trucks, busses and motorcycles as well as marine and agricultural equipment. These wire-to-board, hybrid connectors are a cost-effective solution for power train and body electronics applications, such as engine-control units, gearboxes, electronic-park brakes, junction boxes and suspension controllers.
Molex CMC connectors are secure and reliable, using a high-performing matte seal with multiple sealing lips. Additional features include a terminal position assurance. An integrated locking lever provides a safe and low mating force while mating with the header. Color-coded to match mechanical keying for easy visual installation, Molex‚â€™s CMC hybrid connectors are available in multiple terminal sizes to support low, medium and high-current data requirements. Various backplate configurations and plug seals provide ultimate flexibility and reliability when terminal cavities are not used. A wire cap guides the wires away from the connector.
The CMC hybrid connector family is a modular system that fits with various headers. Several circuit sizes are available for any customer application: Its standard hybrid version runs with Molex CP terminal 0.635mm (.025‚â€) and CP 1.50mm (.059‚â€) in 22-, 24-, 32-, 36-, and 48-circuit versions. Its power hybrid version runs with Molex CP terminal 0.635mm (.025‚â€), 1.50mm (.059‚â€) and 2.80mm (.110‚â€) in 28- and 53-circuit versions. Both versions operate at temperatures between -40 and +125‚ÂºC. Plans to further extend Molex‚â€™s CMC connector and header products are in development.
