Heavy-duty connectors

8 April 2015 Interconnection

The Molex GWconnect line offers a wide range of heavy-duty connectors, with a full range of inserts, enclosures and complementary products totalling more than 6000 items, using materials conforming to international standards and to UL/CSA requirements. The connectors are ideal for industrial applications such as electric and electronic machinery, robots, electrical panels, control equipment, as well as power, control or signal circuit connectivity.

The inserts in self-extinguishing thermoplastic are available with screw terminals, screw terminals with terminal block, spring terminals, crimp terminals and push-in terminals. Turned contacts manufactured for all insert versions are made in hard-silver or in hard-gold coated copper alloy. A complete range of stamped crimp contacts, supplied on reel, is also available alongside the turned version.

The hoods feature an ergonomic design for easy gripping and the hoods and housing are suitable for EMC applications and harsh environments. High mechanical strength and vibration resistance are ensured by locking levers, and enhanced by spring-loaded, lockable metal covers.
