Molex's Mega-Fit power connector delivers 23.0A in a 5.70mm pitch and feature six staggered contact points that move independently on a separate flexible beam. Courtesy: MolexMolex's Mega-Fit wire-to-board high-current power connector is designed to deliver 23.0A in a 5.70mm pitch. These connectors are ideal for applications requiring power from 14.0 to 23.0A per terminal across multiple industries including consumer/home appliance; networking and telecommunications; industrial and commercial vehicle.

The split-box terminal design staggers six contact points, each of which moves independently on a separate flexible beam in order to deliver a redundant, secondary current path for long-term reliability. The staggered contacts allow the front four "sacrificial" contacts to protect the two rear points of contact when un-mating, allowing the system to be "hot plugged" at 48V/23.0A and up to 30 cycles. The terminals also feature an extended barrel conductor crimp providing an extremely strong terminal-to-wire retention, which provides long-term durability and reliability. The Mega-Fit 5.70mm pitch connectors also feature isolated terminals, positive housing locks and polarized housings.
