Molex' Mega-Fit power connectors at TTI

December 12, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Interconnect manufacturer Molex has expanded current-carrying capabilities up to 23.0A with its new Mega-fit power connectors, now available in Europe at TTI.

The power-dense split-box terminal design of 5.70mm pitch Mega-Fit power connectors incorporates high-current terminals and tight pitch and row spacing to produce more power per linear and square millimeter than any other mid-range power product currently available on the market. As well as maximum current of 23.0A, electrical specifications include maximum voltage of 600V and contact resistance of 6 milliohms. As there are six independent points of contact, the four redundant or sacrificial contacts allow the system to be “hot plugged” at 48V/23.0A for up to 30 cycles. Further features include an extended barrel conductor crimp providing extremely strong terminal-to-wire retention, offering the assurance of long-term reliability. Fully isolated header pins and receptacle terminals protect against any potential damage during handling and mating.

To confirm that the receptacle and header are securely retained, Mega-Fit power connectors have positive locking housings which make an audible click when in the correct mating position.
