The MX150 unsealed connector system by Molex is designed for limited space applications and achieves space-savings over traditional USCAR interfaces and optimum performance for mid-power harness applications. Courtesy: MolexMolex's MX150 unsealed connector system is designed for direct connect or in-line mid-power body electronics applications in the automotive industry, where space is limited. The Molex MX150 terminal design helps the unsealed connection system save space.

The hinged Terminal Positioning Assurance (TPA) device, which is molded as part of the housing allows simple terminal insertion and secure terminal seating. The MX150 unsealed connector system’s enlarged push surface helps improve ergonomics, allowing for convenient, USCAR-25 compliant mating and unmating. Harness manufacturers can easily access the terminal latch directly, once the TPA hinge is opened, for quick reworking or field-repairs. In addition, since standard MX150 field-service tools are employed, additional tooling charges are eliminated. 

The MX150 unsealed receptacle and in-line connectors are available in 2-, 3- and 4- circuit versions, though other circuit counts can be developed on request, with custom clip slots for increased design flexibility. To facilitate quick visual installation, 4 polarisation options are offered for each circuit size. The MX150 offers high mating performance for mid-power (14 to 22 AWG) applications by using an integral locking latch. The reinforced front-beam terminal design provides a high contact normal force while minimising the insertion force.
