Molex Introduces D-Sub Earthing Connector

Waterproof connector provides IP66 and IP67 protection with simple, secure Earthing connections

LISLE, IL – May 1, 2018 – Molex introduces a D-Sub form factor Earthing Connector to help customers make secure and robust earthing connections without the use of special tools or specialist training. The connector is designed for hash environments and meets IP66 and IP67 requirements.

The Earthing Connector protects equipment from stray voltages through a secure and low-impedance connection to earth. The IP66 and IP67 NEMA-rated Earthing Connector protects sensitive equipment such as telecommunications base stations against water ingress in the field in mated condition. A cap attached to the connector allows the unmated connector to be IP protected as well.

“Mobile equipment such as base stations often operate in harsh environments and need flexible and fast installation and servicing. This means that the connections are exposed to the elements. The D-Sub Earthing Connector addresses the needs of fast installation and combines this with an industry known and robust form factor,” said Mario Urner, product manager, Molex. “This product is ideal for OEMs who are looking for a connector for mobile and exposed electrical equipment in challenging environments.”

The D-Sub Earthing Connector features a 40.0A contact to an Earth cable (8 AWG) with straight termination and a metal sealing frame for rear installation. Two hexagonal bolts enable the connector to be mounted on the housing.
