Molex debuts MUO 2.5 termination connection

Molex has introduced the MUO 2.5 Termination Connector, designed to replace closed-end (CE) terminals. It is intended to not only reduce cable assembly time for OEMs, but also improve reliability and processing time

The MUO 2.5 Termination Connector has just two retainers (2 and 4 circuits, which can be used in any of the three assemblies (4, 6 and 8 circuits). Retainers cover the terminal lance, protecting assembly personnel from a potential electrical hazard, and it also includes a wire entanglement protection feature.

The separated retainers protect the cables and secure the terminal position while preventing the terminal back-out problem, which acts as an additional electrical shock hazard prevention. A water exhaust function prevents water from getting inside the housing, which adds an additional safety barrier to the connector.

The MUO 2.5 Termination Connector provide a flexible and cost-effective way to deliver an effective connection, and simplify the assembly processes in such markets as washing machines and refrigeration, and in water heaters, fan heaters and air conditioners in the HVAC market.
