Molex Expands CMC Product Line with 32-Circuit Wire-to-Wire Connection System
“The 32-circuit wire-to-wire system enables the customer to implement one female connector and CP terminal system throughout the entire vehicle,” says Selvan Wilhelm, global product manager, Molex. ”By using one connection system, the customer benefits from economies of scale promoting cost-efficient purchasing and optimized production processes, thus reducing overall costs.”
The new Molex 32-circuit, wire-to-wire sealed, high-density, modular connection system is primarily used in powertrain and body electronics applications in cars, trucks and buses. By adopting a complete CMC connection system throughout the entire vehicle, harness makers need only one female connector and terminal system for both their wire-to-board and wire-to-wire applications. For additional flexibility, the 32-circuit wire-to-wire male plug is designed for either bracket or clip mounting to accommodate the specific space and application requirements of each customer.
“Molex carries a comprehensive line of off-the-shelf connection systems that adhere to the CMC industry standard, enabling customers to save on tooling costs and benefit from reduced lead-time,” adds Wilhelm.
