Molex Inc. has announced the FAKRA II SMB connectors that claim to offer enhancements to the original high-performance FAKRA connector. Meeting both American and German FAKRA automotive standards, the connectors offer a 360� rotation for easy routing inside the automobile and a secondary plug locking latch for increased reliability, described the company.

"The FAKRA II connectors answer the automotive industry's increasing demand for on-board telematic services and connectors that improve functionality at a competitive cost," stated Roger Kauffman, marketing and sales manager, Molex. "The system also retains compatibility with the original FAKRA connector, making it ideal for multiple telematic applications including GPS systems, satellite radio, cellphones, WiFi, Bluetooth and keyless entry."

The FAKRA II provides numerous keying options and color codes for design flexibility and ease-of-reference. The cable mounted jacks and plugs provide additional versatility while the stamped contacts and machined or diecast bodies reduce the price over the original, fully machined FAKRA connectors. Because it is a drop-in replacement connector, customers can easily replace a different manufacturer's FAKRA II connectors with the Molex component.
