Molex has
released a new wire-to-wire connector system that, according to the firm, increases
reliability and drives more power in smaller
spaces. The Squba connectors feature 1.80-mm pitch and carry up to 6-A
current.

The new
connectors provide the IP67 NEMA rating on the seals and ensure protection
against liquid, dust, and dirt. Here, seals and seal caps protect from damages
and guard against shipping and handling abuse as well as the possibility of
puncturing the seals during assembly.

Michael
Gonzalez, global product manager at Molex, says that seals
are retained with caps to provide manufacturers of sensors, lighting, vending
machines, and liquid dispensers with a durable barrier from moisture and dust. Molex
also claims that, compared to similarly sealed products, the Squba connectors
offer a narrower pitch and a larger range of circuit sizes.

The Squba connectors come with options for two
to 10 circuits. Moreover, the positive latch is low-profile and is designed to
prevent wires from getting caught or damaged. The connector system can operate at
temperatures ranging from –40°C to 105°C and at 30 N of terminal retention.
