Featuring a fully sealed and modular assembly design that can withstand harsh terrain, the Multi-Drop Sealed Connector and Cable System transfers both power and data/signal in a multi-drop configuration. Using cable-pierce technology to deliver a rugged, free-form, pluggable connector string, the system is fully sealed to IP66 and IP67 ratings. It can also be customized to meet any requirements for internal and external data/signal and power applications. The system is comprised of multiple connector modules made up of three sections including top and base housings, which are terminated to a multi-core flat cable and a custom pluggable connector with an interfacial seal. Retention studs on the top and base housings align the cable module during termination to provide constant compression of the connector on the cable and add strain-relief. Connections can be made on stranded cores of wire of 1.5 mm (16 AWG) or greater. MOLEX INC., Lisle, IL. (800) 786-6539.
