Molex Incorporated has announced its Stac64 Stackable Connection System is now validated against the most stringent specifications from the major key automotive OEMs in Germany, France and Japan.

In addition, new patents have been awarded for the Stac64 design. "Since its launch two years ago, we have undertaken the validation of the Stac64 product line towards all key automotive OEM specifications surpassing the most stringent requirements," said Selvan Wilhelm, global product manager at Molex. "We are the only connector manufacturer in the world to achieve such performance levels with certification from the major automotive OEMs. It is a testament to Molex' immense knowledge and experience gained by working closely with global automotive manufacturers." Designed originally as a standard product system based on USCAR-2 Class II mechanical and electrical performance characteristics for unsealed connector applications, the Stac64 design has since secured new patents relating to the stackable header. "This design evolution differentiates the Stac64 family from the standard products available on the market today," added Wilhelm, "resulting in a new product specification for the Stac64 family, as well as a new Design Validation Plan Report worldwide." According to Molex, the Stac64 stackable connection system allows OEMs greater design flexibility to support both low level signal requirements as well as power applications upwards of 30.0A. It is also designed to allow manufacturers to use header assemblies as standalone components or to gang multiple headers together to support a large range of signal and power needs for devices and modules.
