Molex rugged reliability for the toughest conditions


Today’s vehicles require more connectors and communication than ever before. Environmental sealing and signal integrity within the harsh environments is critical; if one of these areas is compromised, it can result in partial or full failure of an entire system.

Molex’s ML-XT sealed connection system utilizes cutting-edge sealing technology and advanced manufacturing techniques to permanently bond the front seal, creating a one-piece plug housing. Rated IP68, IP6k9k and J2030 power-wash capable, the ML-XT is suitable for up to 18 circuits.

For up to 84 circuits, the SRC family offers a rugged, sealed, wire-to-wire panel mount, hybrid connection system for signal and power. The primary location for this system is as the firewall connector, but SRC can also replace existing connectors in various in-vehicle applications.

Applications in construction and mining can be extremely exposed and require sealing on the bulkhead when unmated. Molex heavy duty connectors meet these demands and are UL/CSA approved.

The company offers a range of communication solutions suitable for harsh environments (IP67 and IP69k) and carrying data rates up to 5Gbps, from connectors and cables to Ethernet switches and solutions. Its unique shielding technologies ensure signal integrity, system functionality and reliability within the commercial vehicle environment.
