Molex tightens pin spacing for smaller 11A PCB power connector

For single row parts (2-8pins) capacity is 14A per pin in tin plate versions and 12A for gold.

In dual row versions (evens 4-16pins) the max currents are 12A and 11A respectively.

Wires from 16 to 22AWG can be accommodated, and electrical specifications include: 400Vmax, 1.8kV dielectric withstanding and 1GΩ insulation.

Features of Molex Ultra-Fit power connectors include multiple mechanically-keyed colour coded options which enables same-circuit, multiple connector use with reduced chance of cross mating.

Optional terminal position assurance retainers guarantee the terminal is fully seated in the housing to reduce terminal back out. “As housings have a positive lock design with an anti-snag feature, mated connector assemblies will not accidentally disengage,” claimed Molex. “The low mating-force terminals have six independent points of contact at the interface and terminals are fully isolated.”

Consumer appliances such as washing machines and refrigerators are expected applications, as are assembly line equipment, other industrial applications, telecommunications, networking hubs, servers, automotive infotainment, lighting ballasts, lighting fixtures, aerospace, defence and medical equipment including patient care devices.
