Sealed, hybrid, high-density and modular connector family for transportation applications
15 December 2010
Building on the success of its CMC connection system, Molex has now introduced its second generation sealed, hybrid, high-density and modular connector system, the CMX family, which features the new CTX terminal system. The fully protected seal means the CMX connector system is particularly suitable for transportation powertrain applications, such as those found in engine control units, automatic gear boxes, suspension controllers and electrical parking brakes.
The first two circuit sizes include a compact 5-row 55-circuit CMX connector and a 5-row 65-circuit CMX connector. Further circuit sizes to extend the family are already in development.
Both CMX connectors support low and medium current using .635mm (.025") and 1.50mm (.059") CTX terminals. The new matte seal is designed for the ultimate high performing sealing function of the CTX terminals and can be used with ISO and JASO wires. The CTX terminal system features a clean-body type design that performs well in harsh environments, while serving low, medium and high current applications. The use of high conductivity copper alloy allows excellent stress relaxation and current carrying properties.
The rear seal cover, which can be moulded with breakable dummy plugs for the CTX terminal cavities, helps to reduce cycle time and applied costs for harness manufacturers. It also allows customers more flexibility for unused cavities.
