Full text


Individual wire-seals Ensure IP6K9K-level protection of the entire wired assembly from end-to-end

Highly compact mated interconnect length (43.95 mm)

Provides up to 30% more space-savings than competing equivalents Automatic seal positioning

(patent pending)

Ensures reliable sealing during repeated mate and un-mate cycles Supports up to 12.0A current per

blade; 16.0A current per blade option available upon request

Suitable for high and low-current applications

Choice of 3 keyed, color-coded version interconnects

Differentiates between connectors with identical circuit sizes and prevents mis-mating during final assembly

Pre-loaded Primary Latch Reinforcement (PLR) feature for additional terminal retention (optional)

Seats terminals firmly in housing to prevent accidental back-out. Non-PLR feature version gives flexibility in pricing based on customer need

Clip-slot feature (optional) Secures the connector to the application chassis for use in high-vibration environment. Non-clip-slot version gives greater pricing flexibility based on customer need

Features and Benefits

Molex introduces the most robust and rugged

wire-sealed connector system designed for superior value,

ideal for light-vehicle applications not requiring USCAR


Faced with increased competition and price pressures, domestic vehicle manufacturers of non-USCAR automotive, light commercial vehicles, 3- and 2-wheelers (motorcycles and scooters) in emerging-economy countries are replacing legacy, sealed wire-to-wire interconnect solutions (used in these applications) with lower-cost, higher-performance equivalents.

The MX150 CE sealed wire-to-wire connector system was developed to deliver higher value and performance car makers need. Designed to operate reliably under harsh environmental and geological conditions where vast travel distances, rugged terrain, poor road conditions and extreme weather temperatures are expected, this highly compact, sealed interconnect solution is the ideal choice for maximum space and cost savings.

Exploded view of 6-circuit MX150 CE Connector Solution – Pre-plated Tin (Sn) crimps inhibit

corrosion and improve crimp contact and mating

– Uses automotive-fluid-compatible resins to meet operating temperatures from –40 to +125°C

– Ring seal and individual wire seals prevent water seepage at IP6K9K sealing class during high-durablity cycles

– Primary Latch Reinforcement (PLR) feature (optional) ensures no accidental terminal back-out of crimped contacts during vibrations of up to 10G – MX150 CETM connectors accept ISO6722-compliant, FLRY-B* wires from 0.35 to 1.5 mm2
