Molex offers a complete portfolio of heavy-duty industrial solutions, which are suitable for use wherever connections are required for power, control and signal circuits and are UL/CSA approved. They are rated to IP66 or IP67 for industrial applications, and IP69K (EN 60529) for applications where frequent washdowns are required, such as in the food & beverage industry, or where aggressive substances are present. Typical applications include control panels, robotics and industrial automation equipment, as well as railway, commercial vehicle and renewable energy. A large variety of enclosures is available with different combinations of components and materials. The principal parts are made in die-cast aluminum alloy with polyester powder coating or in self-extinguishing thermoplastic. Sealing is assured by special gaskets protecting the inserts inside the enclosures against dust, water and other aggressive agents. A self-extinguishing thermoplastic material is used for the inserts, which can accommodate screw terminals, screw terminals with terminal block, spring terminals, crimp terminals and push-in terminals. Turned contacts of all insert versions are made of hard-silver or hard-gold coated copper alloy, ensuring high reliability and performance. The Molex Heavy Duty Connectors are resistant to impact and high mechanical stress as a result of locking lever types to ensure secure mating and prevent accidental unmating. In addition, special gaskets protect the inserts with sealing ratings covering IP66, IP67 and IP69K.
