Molex Adds 8- and 20-Circuit Mid-Power MultiCat Power Connector Versions

These new options add extra versatility to an already superior power connector system.

LISLE, IL – June 26, 2019 – Molex introduces 8- and 20-circuit mid-power versions to the MultiCat Power Connector System with Precision-Machined Contacts. This system provides superior durability and can be mated quickly and ensures proper connection via connector position assurance, making it effective in multiple industry categories. With this connector system, customers will be able to use a reliable connector in a smaller space while minimizing costs.

This new connector system offers a lightweight and compact wire-to-wire or wire-to-board configuration; a UL1977 finger-test-certified receptacle; an operating temperature from -40 to +150˚C; a two-piece hermaphroditic backshell; a visual connector position assurance feature allowing you to see the connector is properly engaged and two keying options. The mid-power version also offers low contact resistance and solid mass contact.

“We are always striving to create value for our customers,” said Michael Gonzalez, global product manager, Molex. “With this product, we open up possibilities for those needing lightweight, small-form factorsappropriate for high-temperature and high-cycle applications.”

The MultiCat High-Power and Mid-Power Connector Systems provide connector position assurance and a positive lock that are activated by hand, making it easy to mate and unmate. This decreases assembly and maintenance time compared to competing products in the market.

Triple Punch Extends The Life Of Your Smart Factory Indoor BLE Beacon

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

One emerging element of smart factories is asset management, namely the tracking of man and machine. Tracking is deployed to achieve two purposes—as a digital twin emulation mechanism to assess inefficiencies on the factory floor and as a predictive maintenance mechanism to determine impending failures. In this design solution, we review the challenges of powering a BLE beacon with a disposable battery and introduce a voltage regulator boost converter that, thanks to a triple punch of high efficiency, low shutdown current, and low quiescent current, sustains its operation for two years on a single disposable AA battery.
