Molex Inc. has expanded its high-performance MX150 sealed connector system portfolio for on-engine applications in construction equipment, commercial vehicles, and automotive. Supporting low-level signal and power applications, the new MX150 panel-mount and twist-lock sealed bulkhead connectors and backshells are designed to meet or exceed requirements for USCAR-2 Class 3 operating environments: -40 to +125°C (-40 to +257°F). They are claimed to have a reduced package size vs. traditional USCAR connectors. MX150 panel-mount connectors employ a gasket seal technology for simple, reliable mating and assembly. MX150 twist-lock sealed bulkhead connectors eliminate the need for additional fasteners. Utilizing a ring-seal technology, the twist-lock latching design provides audible, tactile, and visual feedback to ensure reliable mating and locking. MX150 backshells provide added protection from road debris and other contaminants. The new backshells cover the wire harnesses, helping to prevent electrical issues while addressing “engine beautification trends,” according to Molex.
