The MX123 is a sealed interconnect system that maintains low and stable contact resistance under severe temperatures and vibrations. It uses interfacial and matte-seal technologies to reduce package size and harness-assembly complexity. This technology allows closer-to-center terminal spacing and eliminates the need for crimping individual cable seals. The interfacial seal is interior to the connector shroud, protecting it from damage during harness handling. Plus, the header pins are protected from scooping by a center wall that extends longer than the terminal length.
Based on 064- and 280-size terminal systems, the system is for use in high-vibration applications such as small diesel and turbo engines. The lever receptacles mate with the vertical headers, and offer two mounting-style options, three PCB electrical strategies and multiple-plating options. They can be vertically mounted from the top or bottom of a casting. The headers are available for through-hole solder processing, compliant-pin, or wire-bonding technologies with precious gold or silver plating.
