Molex Inc. has announced an expanded range of customization, modification and extension (CME) capabilities on variations of its system of connectors for small pitch, high current, high density applications. According to the company, CME versions of the Mini-Fit and KK interconnects feature multiple power, circuit count, configuration and size parameters for optimal flexibility in wire-to-wire, wire-to-board and board-to-board standard offerings and blind mating applications in midrange power products.

Mini-Fit CME capabilities include, but are not limited to special polarization to differentiate duplicate circuit sizes, custom molds for housings and receptacles, longer tails for thicker PCBs,

latchless, dual side latching, slide-n-lock, first-mate, last-break contacts, custom panel mounts and colored housings.

Mini-Fit and KK interconnects

Suitable for power applications up to 13A per circuit, Mini-Fit interconnect products are available in single-row or dual-row, 2- to 24-circuit options, with multiple plating and material selections. Other core attributes include an operating temperature of -40°C to 105°C, fully isolated terminals, positive housing locks, low-engagement forces and polarized housings and receptacles. Mini-Fit product lines include Mini-Fit Jr., blind mate interface, compliant pin interface and H2O sealed connectors.

KK CME capabilities include, but are not limited to offset entry holes that provide 180° polarization, kinked PC tails for optimal solder contact to the PCB, longer tail lengths for thicker PCBs, polarization keys and pegs ensure one-way mating, molded-in voids for extra polarization, customized pin lengths, and tin or gold plating.

Versatile KK headers and receptacles enable thousands of configurations for applications with 2.50mm to 5.08mm centerlines, with up to 13A per circuit and up to 600 signal voltage. The Molex KK portfolio includes solid and breakaway headers, PCB receptacles, housing and terminals.

Mini-Fit products are have UL, CSA and TUV certifications. KK products are UL- and CSA-certified. Molex interconnect components are also lead-free and RoHS compliant.
