Molex has recently introduced a range of Glow-Wire compliant connectors that delivers a higher power efficiency compared to its competing products in the market.Molex has been in the connectors manufacturing industry for 15 years and supplies a couple of the largest home appliances original equipment manufacturers in the world.
These connectors bring to the industry a superior quality manufactured by one of the most credible and experienced manufacturers in the market. This will collectively help meet the demand of the existing and future customers to support the sub-assembly process at the global manufacturing sites in the Far East, and assembly sites in the US and Europe.
The automotive industry has also shown interest in RAST connector which has become a growing market trend where a higher retention force is required for high vibration environments.Not only these connectors are suitable in a temperature range from -20 to 120 degrees Celsius for 2.0A applications, but they are even rated for applications that consume up to 4.0A but ranging from -20 to 60 degrees Celsius.
The material chosen for body insulation is Polyamide and possible deviants can accept single wires of an average diameter of 0.30mm2 on 2.5 or 5mm pitch, as well as 0.50mm2 on 5mm pitch.A 10M? insulation resistance was maintained at all times.
Connectors are mated securely due to the latch design holding a retention force of 30N which surpasses the automotive industry’s high vibrations environment. There are also several coding and keying options to avoid mis-mating during process of assembly.Along with all other RAST Molex connectors, they do meet the requirements of the Glow-Wire standard, where it has been tested for flammability at 750 and 850 degrees Celsius. .
