Molex announces the new Squba 1.80-mm pitch sealed wire-to-wire connector system, designed to fit in small spaces and provide protection against liquid, dust and dirt. The connectors carry up to a 6.0 A current and provide an IP67 NEMA rating on the seals. Seals are retained with caps to provide manufacturers of sensors, lighting, vending machines and liquid dispensers with a durable barrier from moisture and dust.
This Molex product is supremely flexible, with options for 2 to 10 circuits, operating temperature limits ranging from –40 to 105˚C, and 30 N of terminal retention. The positive latch is low profile and is designed to prevent wires from getting caught or damaged.
The seal and seal caps protect against on-the-job damage and guard against shipping and handling abuse as well as the possibility of puncturing the seals during assembly. Compared to similar sealed connector products, the Molex Squba 1.80-mmpitch sealed wire-to-wire connector system offers a narrower pitch and a larger range of circuit sizes, and is both waterproof and dust-resistant.
“Ultimately, this new Squba system will provide more cost effective power,” said Michael Gonzalez, global product manager, Molex. “Through innovation, we are driving more power in smaller spaces.”
