Molex Incorporated Key Developments

Molex Incorporated Introduces Brad(R) HarshIO IP67 Digital Compact Ethernet Module

Molex Incorporated announced that it planed to showcase its new Brad(R) HarshIO IP67 Compact Ethernet Modules at the 2014 Industrial Automation North America (IANA) Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit. The Brad HarshIO IP67 digital compact 30mm (M8) module for Ethernet will be displayed at Molex booth E-4915. Brad HarshIO IP67 Ethernet Modules are a reliable, machine-mountable solution for connecting industrial controllers to I/O devices in harsh-duty environments. Narrow 30mm housings are well suited to compact machines where space is limited. The eight I/O ports can be individually configured as inputs or outputs, with M8 connectors that are ideal for attaching sensing devices or actuators. This enables machine designers and installers to connect a single digital signal per port and maintain a high density of I/O points using the minimum amount of space while eliminating wiring errors and providing faster installation times. Featuring an IP67-rated housing to resist dust, liquid and vibration, on-machine mounting of the Brad HarshIO IP67 Compact Ethernet Module eliminates the need for a protective cabinet. The daisy-chain wiring topology and integrated 2-port switch with 100 Mbps full duplex data transmission enables an application to be wired entirely without switches at a lower cost. Supporting PROFINET 'Simple Device Replacement' the patented Ultra-Lock(R) push-to-lock connection system allows fast, safe, operator independent IP67-sealed connection of cordsets.

Molex Incorporated Announces Expansion of its Line of Woodhead(R) Watertite(R) Wet-Location Wiring Solutions, with the Addition of Three FD Multiple Outlet Boxes with Closure Plugs and Reducers

Molex Incorporated announced the expansion of its line of Woodhead(R) Watertite(R) Wet-Location Wiring Solutions, with the addition of three FD Multiple Outlet Boxes with Closure Plugs and Reducers. The non-metallic Multiple FD Outlet Boxes are constructed of rigid PVC, making them extremely durable and resistant to impact, chemicals and solvents. Offering greater depth, they provide 30% more volume than traditional FD boxes, and are available in single-, two- and three-gang configurations to provide greater flexibility. NEMA 4X and IP66 ratings help ensure that the boxes retain a secure, reliable watertight seal to reduce the risk of electrical shock, nuisance tripping, and other electrical hazards, even in environments where frequent high-pressure equipment washdowns are required. The FD boxes are designed to be used conjunction with Woodhead Watertite plugs, receptacles and GFCI coverplate modules in a wide range of wet locations and harsh industrial environments. Typical applications include food, beverage and chemical processing facilities, oil and gas refineries, water treatment plants, and outdoor construction locations and event sites. The Woodhead family of Watertite components is designed and built to perform reliably in a wide range of industrial and harsh environments. In addition to a selection of FD Non-Metallic Boxes, the Watertite portfolio also includes: GFCI coverplate modules and standard coverplates, cordsets, plugs, connectors and receptacles.

Molex Incorporated Unveils New SlimStack SSB6 SMT Microminiature Connectors

Molex Incorporated has announced the launch of its new SlimStack SSB6 SMT microminiature board-to-board connectors. With an ultra-low profile (0.35 mm pitch) and compact size (0.60 mm height x 2.00 mm width, when mated), SlimStack SSB6 connectors are ideal for saving space in the compact packaging of smartphones and other portable mobile devices, as well as a wide range of surgical, therapeutic and monitoring medical devices. The new SlimStack SSB6 connectors (plug and receptacle) incorporate several innovative design features that help to ensure high connector performance and reliability, even when mobile devices are dropped or subjected to shock or vibration. Some key features include: wide mating-alignment housing lead-in areas to facilitate fast, easy alignment and mating without risking connector damage due to forced mating; a strong audible/tactile click to provide extra assurance of successful mating; dual-contact design to provide secure electrical and mechanical contact and prevent open contacts; wipe length of 0.13 mm to help remove dust and debris, providing further contact assurance; housing canopy cover to provide an anti-zippering barrier that prevents contact pullout from angled unmating; and wide vacuum pick-and-place area to accommodates automatic board placement, even with narrow width.
