TTI stocks Molex’s high-density power connectors
For smaller package size, Molex’s Ultra-Fit Power connectors are claimed to occupy 50 per cent less PCB space than similar power interconnects. They are now available from electronic component distributor, TTI.
The Molex Ultra-Fit Power connectors are streamlined in design for smaller, more efficient packaging, yet still provide up to 14A, while taking up less than half the PCB footprint of comparable devices, claims Molex.
Multiple mechanically-keyed colour coded options enable same-circuit, multiple connector use with virtually no chance of cross mating. There are optional terminal position assurance retainers which guarantee the terminal is fully seated in the housing, reducing terminal back out. Housings have a positive lock design with an anti-snag feature, ensuring that mated connector assemblies will not accidentally disengage. The low mating force terminals have six independent points of contact at the interface and terminals are fully isolated.
Electrical specifications include 400V maximum voltage, current 14A in tin options and 12A in gold plated options, dielectric withstanding voltage 1800V, and insulation resistance 1000MOhm.
The Molex Ultra-Fit power connector family is suitable for use in consumer appliances such as washing machines and refrigerators, industrial applications such as assembly line equipment, telecommunications/networking hubs and servers; transportation applications including automotive infotainment; lighting ballasts and lighting fixtures, aerospace and defence applications and medical devices including patient care devices.
TTI is a Berkshire Hathaway company and is an authorised, specialty distributor of interconnect, passive and electromechanical (IP&E) components.
