High Mating Cycle Crimp Terminals
“The unique features of the Mini-Fit Plus HMC provide manufacturers with the ability to increase mating cycles and enhance their current carrying capabilities without increasing the connector footprint,” said Chris Slinkman, global product manager, Molex. “These are the only terminals on the market that can achieve 1,500 mating cycles and 13.0A per circuit – current competitive products only provide 30 mating cycles and 9.0A per circuit.”
The Mini-Fit Plus HMCis available in wire-to-wire and wire-to-board configurations and offered in three wire gauge sizes, 16 AWG, 18 to20 AWG and 22 to24 AWG. The terminals can be used with existing Mini-Fit receptacle and plug housings and with existing Mini-Fit and Mini-Fit Plus HCS headers. Existing Mini-Fit receptacles, plugs and Mini-Fit Plus HCS headers can be used when utilizing the Mini-Fit Plus HMC technology. Additionally, because the crimp terminals are compatible with existing Molex crimp tooling, new tooling is not required.
