LISLE, USA: Molex Inc., a leading global supplier of interconnect solutions, has released the next generation of Brad mPm DIN Valve Connectors featuring the addition of Form C and Form Micro housings.
Combining IP67 sealing properties with an external-thread design, the mPm DIN valve connector range provides superior cable retention for increased performance and reliability. mPm DIN valve connectors simplify the manufacturing process and reduce overall applied costs for hydraulic, pneumatic and electromagnetic drive systems.
The external nut on the Molex mPm DIN valve connector provides greater and consistent torque, which ensures cable retention and high reliability. The mPm DIN connectors achieve a sealing performance from dust and water to IP67. Cable retention force is increased by up to 115 percent compared to traditional internal nut designs. The innovative new design reduces the number of components in the connector, making customer assembly and secure mounting easier and quicker.
“The Brad mPm DIN valve connector range is recognized throughout the industry globally and the name has become synonymous with high performance and reliability,” says Gilberto Rizzo, global product manager, fluid power, Molex. “In comparison to similar products on the market, the internal volume of the DIN Form C housing is increased by 30 percent with no change to the external dimensions of the connector.”
The mPm external-nut design reduces the number of individual components within the DIN valve connector to simplify assembly and mounting. Since the housing of the new design does not protrude past the toe of the nut, the external width of the connector has not increased and thus has no impact on the customer’s application.
