Molex XRC Overmold
ISC Develops New Molding Design for Molex® XRC (Extra Rugged Circular) Connectors
Molex® XRC’s are a robust connector that meet the IP-67 requirements making it a water proof connector that can be used in many demanding applications. These XRC connectors are used heavily in automotive and commercial vehicles. Some of the features and benefits include:
- Keyed connector for easy mating
- Seal retainer collar that works with over-molding applications
- Bayonet latch for fast connections
- IP67 rated
ISC Engineering has further expanded XRC’s features by developing a new custom over-mold that integrates a solid rib strain relief and custom recessed grooves for additional grip. The new mold design can be customized to integrate custom branding as well. The current XRC design from Molex® does not offer a stress relief. The lack of this will cause stress on the internal connections over time. The solution with the new over-mold is to provide a comprehensive solution that protects all the internal connections, provides and aesthetic encapsulate, and gives additional “rugged” protection to the overall connector.
