Wire-to-wire connector offers cost-efficient protection

21 March 2017

Molex has introduced The ValuSeal wire-to-wire connector system from Molex is an IP65-rated, integrated wire-and-ring seal system capable of 11.0A power – suited to use in consumer, non-automotive transportation and lighting applications.

IP67-rated connectors are often to costly for use in OEM applications so, often unsealed connectors are specified which can lead to product malfunctions and failures in harsh, wet environments.

The one-piece design of the ValuSeal system provides a sealed connection at a more economical price, enabling OEMs to lower TCO while increasing product quality and reliability. It features built-in seals moulded into the connector, protecting against water and dust ingress. Crimp-and-poke insertion simplifies wire assembly for added cost efficiency, and the integrated wire strain-relief in the connector body prevents leak-paths. The compact 4.00mm pitch offers design flexibility in limited space environments. The 2-circuit connector is currently available, and a 4-circuit version will follow by mid-2017.
