Molex releases Micro-Lock Plus wire-to-board connector system

Molex has released the Micro-Lock Plus Wire-to-Board Connector System as the company looks to meet the need for high performance, compact size and retention security.

The system features a 1.5A current rating, small footprint and positive latch and Molex has developed a comprehensive terminal solution for OEMs working in space-constrained environments. Intended for industries such as automotive, consumer, and industrial automation, the Micro-Lock Plus Connector System is suitable for a variety of applications, including vehicle switches, robotics, drones, home appliances, and power tools.

Offered with 2 to 42 circuits, single and dual rows, and vertical and horizontal plug configurations, the connector system is intended to offer design engineers improved flexibility. It is one of a few 1.25mm-pitch compact connector systems rated at a 105˚C operating temperature and 1.5A current rating suitable for use in general market applications.

To ensure connectors are fully mated and avoid end-product failure in applications subject to shock, vibration and rough handling, the Micro-Lock Plus features a wide positive latch that delivers an audible click, providing assemblers added peace of mind.

Secure contact and terminal retention are also achieved via the robust metal solder tabs and a dual-contact terminal design. Tin-bismuth terminals provide a clean and uninterrupted signal without the whiskering associated with tin plating and added cost of gold plating.
