Custom sealed connector modules for harsh automotive use

March 09, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Molex' µPDB Custom Sealed Modules allow users to add or relocate power switching and circuit protection in vehicles.

Fully customised to customers’ needs, the modules use only the specific components and materials needed for the application. The fully sealed system enables mounting in multiple locations within the vehicle, including high-vibration and harsh environments. Modules are fully USCAR-2 specified and IP6k7 rated and feature an operating temperature range of -40 to +125°C, making them applicable for use in passenger cars and trucks, industrial and off-highway equipment, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, boats and personal watercraft.

By packaging relays and fuses close to the application, the need for long wire runs back to the power distribution board is eliminated, saving space and cost and avoiding potential wiring errors. Modules are stackable for further convenience and savings in areas with strict space limits.
